The OrderedGroup node is a Group that ensures its children render in a specified order. In addition to the list of children inherited from the base Group class, OrderedGroup defines an integer array of child indices that specify the order in which its children are rendered. This provides a level of indirection in determining the rendering order of its children. By default, the child index order array is null, and the children are rendered in increasing index order.
When the child index order array is nonnull, it must be the same
length as the number of children. Every entry in the array must
have a unique value between 0 and numChildren1
(i.e.,
there must be no duplicate values and no missing indices). The
order that the child indices appear in the child index order array
determines the order in which the children are rendered. The child
at childIndexOrder[0]
is rendered first, followed by
childIndexOrder[1]
, and so on, with the child at
childIndexOrder[numChildren1]
rendered
last.
The child index order array only affects rendering. List operations that refer to a child by index, such as getChild(index), will not be altered by the entries in this array. They will get, enumerate, add, remove, etc., the children based on the actual index in the group node. However, some of the list operations, such as addChild, removeChild, etc., will update the child index order array as a result of their operation. For example, removeChild will remove the entry in the child index order array corresponding to the removed child's index and adjust the remaining entries accordingly. See the documentation for these methods for more details.

If the current child index order array is nonnull, the array is increased in size by one element, and a new element containing the index of the new child is added to the end of the array. Thus, this new child will be rendered last.

If the current child index order array is nonnull, the element containing the removed child's index will be removed from the child index order array, and the array will be reduced in size by one element. If the child removed was not the last child in the Group, the values of the child index order array will be updated to reflect the indices that were renumbered. More formally, each child whose index in the Group node was greater than the removed element (before removal) will have its index decremented by one.

If the current child index order array is nonnull, the array is increased in size by one element, and a new element containing the index of the new child is added to the end of the array. Thus, this new child will be rendered last.

a BranchGroup nodepublic void removeAllChildren()
If the current child index order array is nonnull, then it is set to a zerolength array (the empty set). Note that a zerolength child index order array is not the same as a null array in that as new elements are added, the child index order array will grow and will be used instead of the Group's natural child order.
