Texture Class

Represents a texture that is mapped on objects.
Inheritance Hierarchy

Namespace:  Rhino.DocObjects
Assembly:  RhinoCommon (in RhinoCommon.dll)
public class Texture : CommonObject

The Texture type exposes the following members.

Public methodTexture
Initializes a new texture.
Protected methodTexture(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)
Protected constructor for internal use.
Public propertyApplyUvwTransform
If true then the UVW transform is applied to the texture otherwise the UVW transform is ignored.
Public propertyDisposed
Indicates if this object has been disposed or the document it originally belonged to has been disposed.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public propertyEnabled
If the texture is enabled then it will be visible in the rendered display otherwise it will not.
Public propertyFileName
Gets or sets a file name that is used by this texture.

NOTE: We are moving away from string-based FileName, and suggest the usage of the new FileReference class.

Also, this filename may well not be a path that makes sense on a user's computer because it was a path initially set on a different user's computer. If you want to get a workable path for this user, use the BitmapTable.Find function using this property.

Public propertyFileReference
Gets or sets a copy of the file reference that is used by this texture.
After the get or the set method complete, you own the copy you received or passed in, and can Dispose() of it.
Public propertyHasUserData
Gets true if this class has any custom information attached to it through UserData.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public propertyId
Gets the globally unique identifier of this texture.
Public propertyIsDocumentControlled
If true this object may not be modified. Any properties or functions that attempt to modify this object when it is set to "IsReadOnly" will throw a NotSupportedException.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public propertyIsValid
Tests an object to see if it is valid.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public propertyMappingChannelId
Public propertyTextureCombineMode
Determines how this texture is combined with others in a material's texture list.
Public propertyTextureType
Controls how the pixels in the bitmap are interpreted
Public propertyUserData
List of custom information that is attached to this class.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public propertyUserDictionary
Dictionary of custom information attached to this class. The dictionary is actually user data provided as an easy to use sharable set of information.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public propertyUvwTransform
Transform to be applied to each instance of this texture if ApplyUvw is true
Public propertyWrapU
Texture wrapping mode in the U direction
Public propertyWrapV
Texture wrapping mode in the V direction
Public propertyWrapW
Texture wrapping mode in the W direction
Protected methodConstructConstObject
Assigns a parent object and a sub-object index to this.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public methodDispose
Actively reclaims unmanaged resources that this instance uses.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Protected methodDispose(Boolean)
For derived class implementers.

This method is called with argument true when class user calls Dispose(), while with argument false when the Garbage Collector invokes the finalizer, or Finalize() method.

You must reclaim all used unmanaged resources in both cases, and can use this chance to call Dispose on disposable fields if the argument is true.

Also, you must call the base virtual method within your overriding method.

(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public methodEnsurePrivateCopy
If you want to keep a copy of this class around by holding onto it in a variable after a command completes, call EnsurePrivateCopy to make sure that this class is not tied to the document. You can call this function as many times as you want.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public methodEquals
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalize
Passively reclaims unmanaged resources when the class user did not explicitly call Dispose().
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public methodGetAlphaBlendValues
If the TextureCombineMode is Blend, then the blending function for alpha is determined by

new alpha = constant + a0*(current alpha) + a1*(texture alpha) + a2*min(current alpha,texture alpha) + a3*max(current alpha,texture alpha)

Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as the default hash function.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetObjectData
Populates a System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationInfo with the data needed to serialize the target object.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public methodGetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIsValidWithLog
Determines if an object is valid. Also provides a report on errors if this object happens not to be valid.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone
Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodNonConstOperation
For derived classes implementers.

Defines the necessary implementation to free the instance from being constant.

(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Protected methodOnSwitchToNonConst
Is called when a non-constant operation first occurs.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public methodSetAlphaBlendValues
If the TextureCombineMode is Blend, then the blending function for alpha is determined by

new alpha = constant + a0*(current alpha) + a1*(texture alpha) + a2*min(current alpha,texture alpha) + a3*max(current alpha,texture alpha)

Public methodSetRGBBlendValues
If the TextureCombineMode is Blend, then the blending function for RGB is determined by

new rgb = colorcolor + a0[0]*(current RGB) + a1[1]*(texture RGB) + a2[2]*min(current RGB,texture RGB) + a3[3]*max(current RGB,texture RGB)

Public methodToJSON
Create a JSON string representation of this object
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public methodToString
Returns a string that represents the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
