Class LightList

All Implemented Interfaces:
Savable, JmeCloneable, Cloneable, Iterable<Light>

public final class LightList extends Object implements Iterable<Light>, Savable, Cloneable, JmeCloneable
LightList is used internally by Spatials to manage lights that are attached to them.
  • Constructor Details

    • LightList

      protected LightList()
      constructor for serialization. Do not use
    • LightList

      public LightList(Spatial owner)
      Creates a LightList for the given Spatial.
      owner - The spatial owner
  • Method Details

    • setOwner

      public void setOwner(Spatial owner)
      Set the owner of the LightList. Only used for cloning.
      owner - the desired owner (alias created)
    • add

      public void add(Light l)
      Adds a light to the list. List size is doubled if there is no room.
      l - The light to add.
    • remove

      public void remove(int index)
      Remove the light at the given index.
      index - the zero-based index of the Light to be removed (≥0)
    • remove

      public void remove(Light l)
      Removes the given light from the LightList.
      l - the light to remove
    • size

      public int size()
      The size of the list.
    • get

      public Light get(int num)
      num - the zero-based index of the light to be accessed (≥0)
      the light at the given index.
      IndexOutOfBoundsException - If the given index is outside bounds.
    • clear

      public void clear()
      Resets list size to 0.
    • sort

      public void sort(boolean transformChanged)
      Sorts the elements in the list according to their Comparator. There are two reasons why lights should be resorted. First, if the lights have moved, that means their distance to the spatial changed. Second, if the spatial itself moved, it means the distance from it to the individual lights might have changed.
      transformChanged - Whether the spatial's transform has changed
    • update

      public void update(LightList local, LightList parent)
      Updates a "world-space" light list, using the spatial's local-space light list and its parent's world-space light list.
      local - the local-space LightList (not null)
      parent - the parent's world-space LightList
    • iterator

      public Iterator<Light> iterator()
      Returns an iterator that can be used to iterate over this LightList.
      Specified by:
      iterator in interface Iterable<Light>
      an iterator that can be used to iterate over this LightList.
    • clone

      public LightList clone()
      clone in class Object
    • jmeClone

      public LightList jmeClone()
      Description copied from interface: JmeCloneable
      Performs a regular shallow clone of the object. Some fields may also be cloned but generally only if they will never be shared with other objects. (For example, local Vector3fs and so on.)

      This method is separate from the regular clone() method so that objects might still maintain their own regular java clone() semantics (perhaps even using Cloner for those methods). However, because Java's clone() has specific features in the sense of Object's clone() implementation, it's usually best to have some path for subclasses to bypass the public clone() method that might be cloning fields and instead get at the superclass protected clone() methods. For example, through super.jmeClone() or another protected clone method that some base class eventually calls super.clone() in.

      Specified by:
      jmeClone in interface JmeCloneable
      a new instance
    • cloneFields

      public void cloneFields(Cloner cloner, Object original)
      Description copied from interface: JmeCloneable
      Implemented to perform deep cloning for this object, resolving local cloned references using the specified cloner. The object can call cloner.clone(fieldValue) to deep clone any of its fields.

      Note: during normal clone operations the original object will not be needed as the clone has already had all of the fields shallow copied.

      Specified by:
      cloneFields in interface JmeCloneable
      cloner - The cloner that is performing the cloning operation. The cloneFields method can call back into the cloner to make clones of its subordinate fields.
      original - The original object from which this object was cloned. This is provided for the very rare case that this object needs to refer to its original for some reason. In general, all of the relevant values should have been transferred during the shallow clone, and this object need only clone what it wants.
