      public void setSpatial(Spatial spatial)
      Specified by:
      setSpatial in interface Control

      tpf - time per frame (in seconds)
    • controlRender

      protected abstract void controlRender(RenderManager rm, ViewPort vp)
      To be implemented in subclass.
      rm - the RenderManager rendering the controlled Spatial (not null)

    • cloneForSpatial

      @Deprecated public Control cloneForSpatial(Spatial spatial)
      Description copied from interface: Control
      Creates a clone of the Control, the given Spatial is the cloned version of the spatial to which this control is attached to.
      Specified by:
      cloneForSpatial in interface Control
      spatial - the Spatial to be controlled by the clone
      A clone of this control for the spatial
    • jmeClone

      public Object 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.
    • update

      public void update(float tpf)
      Description copied from interface: Control
      Updates the control. This should not be called from user code.
      Specified by:
      update in interface Control
      tpf - Time per frame.
    • render

      public void render(RenderManager rm, ViewPort vp)
      Description copied from interface: Control
      Should be called prior to queuing the spatial by the RenderManager. This should not be called from user code.
      Specified by:
      render in interface Control
      rm - the caller (not null)
      vp - the relevant ViewPort (not null)
    • write

      Specified by:
      write in interface Savable
    • read
