Structure type:


StringSensor generates events as the user presses keys on the keyboard.

id Name DataType PartType Default ValueType Description
SFBool deletionAllowed SFBool inputOutput TRUE If deletionAllowed is true, then previously entered character in enteredText can be removed. If deletionAllowed is false, then characters may only be added to the string. Hint: deletion key is typically defined by local system.
SFString enteredText SFString outputOnly Events generated as character-producing keys are pressed on keyboard.
SFString finalText SFString outputOnly Events generated when sequence of keystrokes matches keys in terminationText string when this condition occurs, enteredText is moved to finalText and enteredText is set to empty string. Hint: termination key is typically defined by local system.
SFString triggerName SFString initializeOnly Timer Name of the dynamic context-slot which is used by the run-time environment (e.g. Jobs) to trigger the node. Life-Nodes will automatically connect the context-eventOutut to the triggerSlot-eventInput Slot.
MFString keysToConsume MFString inputOutput ALL List of keys this sensor should consume, i.e. NOT pass on to the viewareas. The sensor will still react to ALL key presses. Keys can be specified as characters (e.g. 'a'), as key codes ('#123'), or as Navigator-ActionKey strings (e.g. 'ESC'). The special string 'ALL' means the sensor whould consume all events (default behavior).
SFString description SFString inputOutput Text description to comment the sensor task. Can be used in run-time systems to give usefull feedback to the user and developer
SFBool enabled SFBool inputOutput TRUE Enables/disables the sensor node.
SFBool isActive SFBool outputOnly FALSE isActive true/false events are sent when the sensor gets active
SFTime triggerSlot SFTime inputOnly slot which is used internally to connect a dynamic context-slot which name is set by the triggerName value. Its used automatically to install run-time environment trigger.
MFString logFeature MFString inputOutput state, child, parent, route, eventIn, eventOut controls the logging of changes, state: log state changes (e.g. live), child: log child add/remove, parent: log parent add/remove, route: log route add/remove; eventIn: log receiving of events, eventOut: log sending of events: guiView, runtime system should create node-view, guiEdit: runtime system should create node-editeverything: log everything
SFNode metadata SFNode inputOutput MetadataObject container for payload metadata inside MetadataSet element
