Unigine::ObjectGuiMesh Class

Header: #include <UnigineObjects.h>
Inherits from: Object

This class allows for rendering GUI onto an arbitrary mesh. Unlike ObjectGui, it can be used to create non-flat displays positioned in the world. If the mesh contains several surfaces, the same GUI will be rendered on each of them. Note that the GUI will be rendered according to the UV mapping of surfaces.

Notice
It's highly recommended NOT to edit the returned mesh.

Return value

Returns the base mesh used for the object. The returned static mesh won't be loaded to VRAM.
Notice
It's highly recommended NOT to edit the returned mesh.

Return value

A base static mesh used for the object.

Ptr<MeshStatic> getMeshAsync ( ) #

Returns the base mesh used for the object asynchronously. This function can be called if the mesh hasn't been loaded yet.
Notice
It's highly recommended NOT to edit the returned mesh.

Return value

A base static mesh used for the object.

Ptr<MeshStatic> getMeshForceVRAM ( ) #

Returns the base mesh used for the object and loads it to video memory (VRAM). At that, the static mesh will also be loaded to memory (RAM).
Notice
Loading to VRAM must be performed in the main thread only.

Return value

A base static mesh used for the object.

Ptr<MeshStatic> getMeshAsyncVRAM ( ) #

Returns the base mesh used for the object asynchronously and loads it to video memory (VRAM). At that, the static mesh will also be loaded to memory (RAM).
Notice
Loading to VRAM must be performed in the main thread only.

Return value

A base static mesh used for the object.

bool loadAsyncVRAM ( ) #

Asynchronously loads the mesh to video memory (VRAM) if the async streaming mode for meshes is enabled. Otherwise, the forced loading is performed. This method is recommended for implementing your own prefetch system (i.e. asynchronous pre-loading of meshes to video memory before they are used).
Notice
Loading to VRAM must be performed in the main thread only.

Return value

true if the mesh is loaded successfully, otherwise false. If the mesh is already loaded to VRAM, true will be returned.

bool loadAsyncRAM ( ) #

Asynchronously loads the mesh to memory (RAM) if the async streaming mode for meshes is enabled. Otherwise, the forced loading is performed. This method is recommended for implementing your own prefetch system (i.e. asynchronous pre-loading of meshes to memory before they are used).

Return value

true if the mesh is loaded successfully, otherwise false. If the mesh is already loaded to RAM, true will be returned.

bool loadForceVRAM ( ) #

Performs force-loading of the mesh to video memory (VRAM) immediately. The forced loading to VRAM is performed in the main thread.
Notice
Loading to VRAM must be performed in the main thread only.

Return value

true if the mesh is loaded successfully, otherwise false. If the mesh is already loaded to VRAM, true will be returned.

bool loadForceRAM ( ) #

Performs force-loading of the mesh to memory (RAM) immediately.

Return value

Asynchronously calculates the mesh surface internal spatial tree used for quick calculation of collisions and intersections. This method is recommended for implementing your own prefetch system (i.e. asynchronous pre-loading of meshes to memory before they are used).

Arguments

  • int surface - Mesh surface number.

Return value

true if the internal tree is calculated successfully; otherwise, false.

bool asyncCalculateEdges ( int surface ) #

Asynchronously calculates the edges of the mesh surface geometry. This method is recommended for implementing your own prefetch system (i.e. asynchronous pre-loading of meshes to memory before they are used).

Arguments

  • int surface - Mesh surface number.

Return value

true if the edges are calculated successfully; otherwise, false.

void applyMeshProcedural ( const Ptr<Mesh> & mesh ) #

Sets the specified mesh as the base mesh for the object. The object must be in the procedural mesh mode.
Notice
The mesh should contain a single surface. In case if the mesh contains several surfaces, only the one with the 0 index will be used. Thus, the area of the decal will differ from the initial mesh.
Source code (C++)
ObjectGuiMeshPtr my_gui_mesh;
// ...

// switch the object to procedural mesh mode
my_gui_mesh->setMeshProceduralMode(true);

// update the source mesh of the "my_gui_mesh" object via the source_mesh instance
my_gui_mesh->applyMeshProcedural(source_mesh);

Arguments

  • const Ptr<Mesh> & mesh - Mesh to be applied.

void setMeshProceduralMode ( bool meshproceduralmode ) #

Sets a value indicating if the base mesh used for the object is procedural. A procedural mesh is a mesh created via code, such meshes have a specific streaming mode - they are always kept in memory after creation and never unloaded until the object is destroyed via code or the mesh returns to its normal mode (streaming from a source file). Changing of the base static mesh is possible only if it is in the procedural mode.

Arguments

  • bool meshproceduralmode - true to switch the base mesh used for the object to procedural mode; otherwise, false - normal mode (the base mesh is streamed from a source file).

bool isMeshProceduralMode ( ) const#

Returns a value indicating if the base mesh used for the object is procedural. A procedural mesh is a mesh created via code, such meshes have a specific streaming mode - they are always kept in memory after creation and never unloaded until the object is destroyed via code or the mesh returns to its normal mode (streaming from a source file). Changing of the base static mesh is possible only if it is in the procedural mode.

Return value

true if the base mesh used for the object is procedural; otherwise, false - normal mode (the base mesh is streamed from a source file).

bool isMeshNull ( ) const#
