getTreeKey function

Syntax

• string getTreeKey()

Returns

The unique TreeKey of the shape being derived, formatted as a string list. The TreeKey is a list of integer numbers denoting the path from the root shape to the shape being derived in the shape tree. Each number denotes the 0-based child index, see example 1 below.

Note:

The TreeKey stays the same during derivation of the whole rule, see TreeKey example below.

Examples

Simple Example

 CGA code``````Init--> print(getTreeKey() + " - Init") center(xz) extrude(10) comp(f) { front: Facade} Facade--> print(getTreeKey() + " - Facade") split(y) {'0.5 : Floor }* Floor--> print(getTreeKey() + " - Floor") split(x) { '0.1 : Wall | '0.3 : Window | '0.1 : Wall }* Wall--> print(getTreeKey() + " - Wall") Window--> print(getTreeKey() + " - Window")``````CGA console output``````0; - Init 0;0; - Facade 0;0;0; - Floor 0;0;1; - Floor 0;0;0;0; - Wall 0;0;0;1; - Window 0;0;0;2; - Wall 0;0;0;3; - Wall 0;0;0;4; - Window 0;0;0;5; - Wall 0;0;1;0; - Wall 0;0;1;1; - Window 0;0;1;2; - Wall 0;0;1;3; - Wall 0;0;1;4; - Window 0;0;1;5; - Wall`````` Model Hierarchy

The TreeKey stays the same during Derivation of the whole Rule

CGA code

``````ShapeA -->
print(getTreeKey)
split(x){ 2: ShapeB print(getTreeKey)
| 3: ShapeC print(getTreeKey) }``````

CGA console output

``````0;
0;
0;``````
