CategorySelectorState Class

A set of Categories to be displayed in a ViewState. Elements belonging to categories not specified in the category selector will not be drawn in the view. By default, geometry belonging to any SubCategory of a visible Category is also visible in the view, unless the SubCategoryAppearance or SubCategoryOverride specifies that it should be invisible.

note To change the set of categories visible in a ViewState currently associated with a Viewport, use ViewState.changeCategoryDisplay to ensure the view updates appropriately on screen.
