  \class SoFieldConverter SoFieldConverter.h Inventor/engines/SoFieldConverter.h
  \brief The SoFieldConverter class is the abstract base class for field converters.
  \ingroup engines

  When fields of different types are attempted connected, the Coin
  library tries to find a field converter class which can be inserted
  between them, acting as a filter converting values from the master
  field to values matching the type of the slave field.

  If a value type conversion is possible (like between an SoSFFloat
  field and an SoSFInt32 field, for instance, where we could do a
  simple typecast for converting the value of one to the other), an
  SoFieldConverter derived object is inserted.

  This class is the abstract base superclass which all such field
  converters needs to inherit.

  Coin comes with one built-in field converter class which takes care
  of all possible field-to-field conversions we know about. This means
  applications programmers should seldom need to care about this
  class, it will probably only be useful if you expand the Coin
  library with your own field type classes. (Doing so is considered
  advanced use of the library.)

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
