Detailed DescriptionThis interface reprents a mesh of polygons.
It is useful to communicate geometry information outside of the engine. One place where this will be useful is for communicating geometry information to the collision detection plugin.
All Crystal Space mesh objects (things, sprites, ...) should implement and/or embed an implementation of this interface.
A polygon mesh has the concept of a vertex buffer and an array of polygons. A triangle mesh is also supported. A mesh object typically only implements either a polygon mesh or a triangle mesh. In that case requesting the other type of mesh will automatically generate the new format. iPolygonMesh can use csPolygonMeshTools::Triangulate() and csPolygonMeshTools::Polygonize() to help with that.
Main creators of instances implementing this interface:
- Almost all mesh objects have several implementations of this interface.
Main ways to get pointers to this interface:
Main users of this interface:
- Collision detection plugins (iCollideSystem)
- Visibility culler plugins (iVisibilityCuller)
- Shadow stencil plugin

|virtual uint32 iPolygonMesh::GetChangeNumber||(||)|| const
|virtual csFlags& iPolygonMesh::GetFlags||(||)||
Get flags for this polygon mesh.
This is zero or a combination of the following flags:
- CS_POLYMESH_CLOSED: mesh is closed.
- CS_POLYMESH_NOTCLOSED: mesh is not closed.
- CS_POLYMESH_CONVEX: mesh is convex.
- CS_POLYMESH_NOTCONVEX: mesh is not convex.
- CS_POLYMESH_DEFORMABLE: mesh is deformable.
- CS_POLYMESH_TRIANGLEMESH: mesh prefers triangle mesh.
Note that if neither CS_POLYMESH_CLOSED nor CS_POLYMESH_NOTCLOSED are set then the closed state is not known. Setting both is illegal. Note that if neither CS_POLYMESH_CONVEX nor CS_POLYMESH_NOTCONVEX are set then the convex state is not known. Setting both is illegal.
