RenderContent Methods

The RenderContent type exposes the following members.

Methods
  NameDescription
Public methodAddAutomaticUserInterfaceSection
Add a new automatic user interface section, Field values which include prompts will be automatically added to this section.
Public methodAddChild(RenderContent) Obsolete.
Public methodAddChild(RenderContent, String) Obsolete.
Public methodStatic memberAddPersistentRenderContent(RenderContent) Obsolete.
Add a material, environment or texture to the internal RDK document lists as top level content. The content must have been returned from RenderContent::MakeCopy, NewContentFromType or a similar function that returns a non-document content.
Public methodStatic memberAddPersistentRenderContent(RhinoDoc, RenderContent) Obsolete.
Add a material, environment or texture to the internal RDK document lists as top level content. The content must have been returned from RenderContent::MakeCopy, NewContentFromType or a similar function that returns a non-document content.
Public methodAddUserInterfaceSection(ICollapsibleSection)
Public methodAddUserInterfaceSection(Type, String, Boolean, Boolean) Obsolete.
Add a new .NET control to an content expandable tab section, the height of the createExpanded tabs client area will be the initial height of the specified control.
Public methodBeginChange
Begins a change or batch of changes. This returns a reference to the content which you should use to make your changes. It may also make a copy of the content state allowing EndChange to send an event with the old and new contents. Calls to this method are counted; you must call EndChange() once for every call to BeginChange(). Note: If Changed() was called between the calls to BeginChange() and EndChange(), the last call to EndChange() may cause the ContentChanged event to be sent.
Public methodBindParameterToField(String, Field, RenderContentChangeContexts)
Use bindings to automatically wire parameters to fields
Public methodBindParameterToField(String, String, Field, RenderContentChangeContexts)
Use bindings to automatically wire parameters to fields
Protected methodCalculateRenderHash
Override this method to calculate the render hash of the state that affects how the content is rendered. Does not include children or perform any caching. Render hash values are now automatically cached by the content framework and you do not have to worry about caching. You also do not have to worry about iterating into children. This method is now only called internally by the framework, use the RenderHash property to get the current hash value.
Public methodChangeChild Obsolete.
Public methodChildSlotAmount
Gets the amount property for the texture in the specified child slot. Values are typically from 0.0 - 100.0
Public methodChildSlotNameFromParamName
A "child slot" is the specific "slot" that a child (usually a texture) occupies. This is generally the "use" of the child - in other words, the thing the child operates on. Some examples are "color", "transparency".
Public methodChildSlotOn
Gets the on-ness property for the texture in the specified child slot.
Public methodStatic memberCreate(Guid, RenderContentShowContentChooserFlags, RhinoDoc)
Constructs a new content of the specified type and add it to the persistent content list. This function cannot be used to create temporary content that you delete after use. Content created by this function is owned by RDK and appears in the content editor. To create a temporary content which is owned by you, call RenderContentType.NewContentFromType().
Public methodStatic memberCreate(Type, RenderContentShowContentChooserFlags, RhinoDoc)
Constructs a new content of the specified type and add it to the persistent content list. This function cannot be used to create temporary content that you delete after use. Content created by this function is owned by RDK and appears in the content editor. To create a temporary content which is owned by you, call RenderContentType.NewContentFromType().
Public methodStatic memberCreate(Guid, RenderContent, String, RenderContentShowContentChooserFlags, RhinoDoc)
Constructs a new content of the specified type and add it to the persistent content list. This function cannot be used to create temporary content that you delete after use. Content created by this function is owned by RDK and appears in the content editor. To create a temporary content which is owned by you, call RenderContentType.NewContentFromType().
Public methodStatic memberCreate(Type, RenderContent, String, RenderContentShowContentChooserFlags, RhinoDoc)
Constructs a new content of the specified type and add it to the persistent content list. This function cannot be used to create temporary content that you delete after use. Content created by this function is owned by RDK and appears in the content editor. To create a temporary content which is owned by you, call RenderContentType.NewContentFromType().
Public methodDeleteAllChildren
Public methodDeleteChild
Public methodDispose
Protected methodDispose(Boolean)
Public methodDynamicIcon
Public methodEdit
Call this method to open the content in the a modal version of the editor. The content must be in the document or the call will fail.
Public methodEndChange
Ends a change or batch of changes. Calls to this method are counted; you must call this method once for every call to BeginChange(RenderContentChangeContexts). Note: If BeginChange(RenderContentChangeContexts) was called with ChangeContexts.UI, ChangeContexts.Program, ChangeContexts.Drop or ChangeContexts.UI.Tree and Changed() was called between the calls to BeginChange(RenderContentChangeContexts) and EndChange(), the last call to EndChange() will raise the ContentChanged event.
Public methodEquals
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodFactory
Protected methodFinalize (Overrides ObjectFinalize.)
Public methodFindChild
Public methodForDisplay
**** This method is for proxies and will be marked obsolete in V7 **** The only place a single proxy can be displayed is in the New Content Control main thumbnail. All other attempts to use a single proxy in a UI require it to be replaced with the corresponding multi proxy. Single proxies override this to find the corresponding multi proxy.
Public methodStatic memberFromId
Search for a content object based on its Id
Public methodStatic memberFromXml(String) Obsolete.
Public methodStatic memberFromXml(String, RhinoDoc)
Public methodGetChildSlotParameter
Extra requirements are a way of specifying extra functionality on parameters in the automatic UI. Implement this function to specify additional functionality for automatic UI sections or the texture summary. See IAutoUIExtraRequirements.h in the C++ RDK for string definitions for the parameter names.
Public methodGetEmbeddedFilesList
Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as the default hash function.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetParameter

Public methodSetChild(RenderContent, String)
Set another content as a child of this content. This content may or may not be attached to a document. If this content already has a child with the specified child slot name, that child will be deleted. If this content is not attached to a document, the child will be added without sending any events. If this content is attached to a document, the necessary events will be sent to update the UI. Note: Do not call this method to add children in your constructor. If you want to add default children, you should override Initialize() and add them there.
Public methodSetChild(RenderContent, String, RenderContentChangeContexts) Obsolete.

Public methodSetChildSlotOn
Sets the on-ness property for the texture in the specified child slot.
Public methodSetChildSlotParameter
Extra requirements are a way of specifying extra functionality on parameters in the automatic UI. Implement this function to support values being set from automatic UI sections or the texture summary. See IAutoUIExtraRequirements.h in the C++ RDK for string definitions for the parameter names.
