isOff()bool

Returns true if the MaterialAttrib is an ‘off’ MaterialAttrib, indicating that it should disable the use of materials.

static make(material: Material)RenderAttrib

Constructs a new MaterialAttrib object suitable for rendering the indicated material onto geometry.

static makeDefault()RenderAttrib

Returns a RenderAttrib that corresponds to whatever the standard default properties for render attributes of this type ought to be.

static makeOff()RenderAttrib

Constructs a new MaterialAttrib object suitable for rendering unmateriald geometry.

property materialMaterial

If the MaterialAttrib is not an ‘off’ MaterialAttrib, returns the material that is associated. Otherwise, return NULL.
