fully implemented
Structure type:


Script provides programmed behavior for a scene. Define the script interface with "field" tags. Scripting code is embedded in a child CDATA node or (deprecated) in the url field. Optionally supported languages: ECMAScript/JavaScript and (via url to a myNode.class file) Java.

id Name DataType PartType Default ValueType Description
MFString url MFString inputOutput cdata points to a script file or contains scripting code. Preferred alternative to url scripts: insert a CDATA node to contain embedded source code. CDATA can protect literals like less then and greater then from syntax checkers. Hint: ECMAScript is the same as JavaScript.
SFBool directOutput SFBool initializeOnly FALSE Set directOutput true if Script has field reference(s) of type SFNode/MFNode, and also uses direct access to modify attributes of a referenced node in the Scene. Hint: set directOutput true if Script dynamically establishes or breaks ROUTEs. Hint: directOutput is a browser hint to avoid overoptimizing referenced nodes, since the Script may change their attribute values without ROUTEd events. Hint: directOutput false means Script cannot modify referenced nodes or change ROUTEs.
SFBool mustEvaluate SFBool initializeOnly FALSE If mustEvaluate false, then browser may delay sending input events to Script until outputs are needed. If mustEvaluate true, then Script must receive input events immediately without browser delays. Hint: set mustEvaluate true when sending/receiving values via the network.
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 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
