Detailed Description

The SoVRMLColorInterpolator class is used to interpolate color values.

The detailed class documentation is taken verbatim from the VRML97 standard (ISO/IEC 14772-1:1997). It is copyright The Web3D Consortium, and is used by permission of the Consortium:

  ColorInterpolator {
    eventIn      SFFloat set_fraction        # (-inf, inf)
    exposedField MFFloat key           []    # (-inf, inf)
    exposedField MFColor keyValue      []    # [0,1]
    eventOut     SFColor value_changed
This node interpolates among a list of MFColor key values to produce an SFColor (RGB) value_changed event. The number of colours in the keyValue field shall be equal to the number of keyframes in the key field. The keyValue field and value_changed events are defined in RGB colour space. A linear interpolation using the value of set_fraction as input is performed in HSV space (see[FOLE] for description of RGB and HSV colour spaces). The results are undefined when interpolating between two consecutive keys with complementary hues.
4.6.8, Interpolator nodes (, contains a detailed discussion of interpolators.

Member Function Documentation

SoType SoVRMLColorInterpolator::getClassTypeId (void) [static]

This static method returns the SoType object associated with objects of this class.

Reimplemented from SoVRMLInterpolator.

SoType SoVRMLColorInterpolator::getTypeId (void) const [virtual]

Returns the type identification of an object derived from a class inheriting SoBase. This is used for run-time type checking and 'downward' casting.

Usage example:

  void foo(SoNode * node)
    if (node->getTypeId() == SoFile::getClassTypeId()) {
      SoFile * filenode = (SoFile *)node;  // safe downward cast, knows the type

For application programmers wanting to extend the library with new nodes, engines, nodekits, draggers or others: this method needs to be overridden in all subclasses. This is typically done as part of setting up the full type system for extension classes, which is usually accomplished by using the pre-defined macros available through for instance Inventor/nodes/SoSubNode.h (SO_NODE_INIT_CLASS and SO_NODE_CONSTRUCTOR for node classes), Inventor/engines/SoSubEngine.h (for engine classes) and so on.

For more information on writing Coin extensions, see the class documentation of the toplevel superclasses for the various class groups.

Reimplemented from SoVRMLInterpolator.

const SoFieldData ** SoVRMLColorInterpolator::getFieldDataPtr (void) [static], [protected]

Returns the SoFieldData class which holds information about inputs in this engine.

Reimplemented from SoVRMLInterpolator.

const SoFieldData * SoVRMLColorInterpolator::getFieldData (void) const [protected], [virtual]

Returns a pointer to the class-wide field data storage object for this instance. If no fields are present, returns NULL.

Reimplemented from SoVRMLInterpolator.

const SoEngineOutputData ** SoVRMLColorInterpolator::getOutputDataPtr (void) [static], [protected]

Returns the SoEngineOutputData class which holds information about the outputs in this engine.

Reimplemented from SoVRMLInterpolator.

const SoEngineOutputData * SoVRMLColorInterpolator::getOutputData (void) const [virtual]

This API member is considered internal to the library, as it is not likely to be of interest to the application programmer.

Reimplemented from SoVRMLInterpolator.

void SoVRMLColorInterpolator::initClass (void) [static]

Sets up initialization for data common to all instances of this class, like submitting necessary information to the Coin type system.

Reimplemented from SoVRMLInterpolator.
