 2nd post - please help .....


I'm creating a PROTO which allows the user to specify their own geometry
node. I need to be able to retrieve the XYZ dimensions of this geometry
WITHOUT explicitly creating another SFVec3f field that the user has to fill
in also.

Is this possible?

I thought of using bboxSize but it's not an exposedField and from what I can
gather is usually automatically calculated by the vrml browser. This is the
sort of value I need though!

Any help appreciated ...

Hello Brian,

As far as I know, there's no standard interface for doing advanced
(from VRML's point of view) things. Basically you have two ways to go,
depending on what you need more---compatibility with different browsers
or speed of execution. In the first case take a standard interface for
accessing scene and implement the desired functionality yourself (for
bounding boxes it's not a big deal). Otherwise, find a browser that
implements it natively (there should be some), and stick with it's
proprietary interface (which is not good).

All the best,
