Property Documentation

[since QtDataVisualization 5.9] autoPosition : bool

This property holds whether the light position follows the camera automatically.

Note: Has no effect if shadows are enabled. Remember to disable shadows before setting light's position, or it will be overwritten by automatic positioning if isAutoPosition() is false.

This property was introduced in QtDataVisualization 5.9.

Access functions:

bool isAutoPosition()
void setAutoPosition(bool enabled)

Notifier signal:

void autoPositionChanged(bool autoPosition)

[virtual] Q3DLight::~Q3DLight()
