Filter: X3D only | Avalon only | All
id Name DataType PartType Default ValueType Description
SFFloat initialDestination SFFloat initializeOnly 0 initializes the internal destination state of the node
SFFloat initialValue SFFloat initializeOnly 0 initializes the internal value state of the node
SFInt32 order SFInt32 initializeOnly 1 [0, 5] The field order specifies the number of such internal filters. Specifying zero for order means that no filter is used. In this case the events received on set_destination are forwarded directly to output_changed
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.
SFFloat set_destination SFFloat inputOnly The set_destination inputOnly field receives new destination values, resulting in the value_changed field sending output values in most cases.
SFFloat set_value SFFloat inputOnly With the set_value inputOnly field, one can immediately force the current value towards a certain value
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.
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.
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
SFTime tau SFTime inputOutput 0 [0, Inf) The field tau specifies the time-constant of the internal filters and thus the speed that the output of an X3DDamperNode responds to the input
SFFloat tolerance SFFloat inputOutput -1 [0, Inf) if tolerance is set to its default value -1, the browser implementation is allowed to find a good way for detecting the end of a transition. Browsers that do not have an elaborate algorithm can just use .001 as the tolerance value instead. If a value larger than zero is specified for tolerance, the browser shall calculate the difference between output and input for each internal filter being used and stop the animation only when all filters fall below that limit or are equal to it
SFBool isActive SFBool outputOnly FALSE isActive true/false events are sent when the sensor gets active
SFFloat value_changed SFFloat outputOnly The value_changed outputOnly field outputs the current value of the internal state
