➨ Fields

The OrthoViewpoint node defines a viewpoint that provides an orthographic view of the scene. An orthographic view is one in which all projectors are parallel to the projector from centerOfRotation to position.

These are the X3D / X3DOM fields of this node. Values should usually be received / set as strings via DOM functions (i.e., using setAttribute("myFieldName", "myFieldValue") and getAttribute("myFieldName")).
Name Type Default Value Range Inheritance Standard Description
bind SFBool false Core/X3DBindableNode Pushes/pops the node on/from the top of the bindable stack
centerOfRotation SFVec3f 0,0,0 centerOfRotation point relates to NavigationInfo EXAMINE mode.
description SFString "" Core/X3DBindableNode Description of the bindable node
farClippingPlane SFFloat -1 -1 or [0, inf] X3DViewpointNode Specifies the far clipping plane, alias for zFar
fieldOfView MFFloat [-1,-1,1,1] The fieldOfView field specifies minimum and maximum extents of the view in units of the local coordinate system
isActive SFBool false Core/X3DBindableNode
metadata SFNode X3DMetadataObject Core/X3DNode Field to add metadata information
navigationInfo SFBool null X3DViewpointNode Defines a dedicated NavigationInfo node for this X3DViewpointNode. The specified NavigationInfo node receives a set_bind TRUE event at the time when the parent node is bound and receives a set_bind FALSE at the time when the parent node is unbound.
nearClippingPlane SFFloat -1 -1 or [0, inf] X3DViewpointNode Specifies the near clipping plane, alias for zNear
orientation SFRotation 0,0,0,1 [-1, 1] or [-inf, inf] Rotation (axis, angle in radians) of Viewpoint, relative to default -Z axis direction in local coordinate system. Hint: this is orientation _change_ from default direction (0 0 -1). Hint: complex rotations can be accomplished axis-by-axis using parent Transforms.
position SFVec3f 0,0,10 Position (x, y, z in meters) relative to local coordinate system.
viewAll SFBool false X3DViewpointNode When the viewAll field is set to TRUE or a viewpoint is bound with viewAll field TRUE, the current view is modified to change the centerOfRotation field to match center of the bounding box for the entire visible scene, and the orientation field is modified to aim at that point. Finally, the zoom position or fieldofview is adjusted to contain the entire scene in the current viewing window. If needed, the near and far clipping planes shall be adjusted to allow viewing the entire scene. When the value of the viewAll field is changed from TRUE to FALSE, no change in the current view occurs.
zFar SFFloat 10000 z-far position; used for clipping
zNear SFFloat 1 z-near position; used for clipping
