Description

This class contains detail information about a point on a text shape (SoText2 or SoText3). It contains the part of the text, string, and character that were hit or generated.

Methods

SoTextDetail()

virtual ~SoTextDetail()
Constructor and destructor.

int32_t getStringIndex() const
Returns the index of the relevant string within a multiple-value string field of a text node.

int32_t getCharacterIndex() const
Returns the index of the relevant character within the string. For example, if the character of detail was the "u" within "Splurmph", the character index would be 3.

SoText3::Part getPart() const
For SoText3, this returns which part was picked or generated.

SbBox3f getBoundingBox() const

SbXfBox3f getXfBoundingBox() const
When the detail is returned from picking, these return the object-space bounding box of the character that was intersected. Otherwise, they return an empty box. The second method returns an SbXfBox3f instead of a SbBox3f. These methods are implemented only for 3D text.

static SoType getClassTypeId()
Returns type identifier for this class.
