➨ Fields

TouchSensor tracks location and state of the pointing device, and detects when user points at geometry. Hint: X3DOM, running in an HTML environment, you actually don't need this node, as you can simply use HTML events (like onclick) on your nodes. However, this node is implemented to complete the pointing device sensor component, and it may be useful to ensure compatibility with older X3D scene content.
