LineStripArray

Hi,

How do I create a VisADLineStripArray? I have a list of coordinates and
I want a shape that connects the dots. I have used a VisADLineArray but
I have to list each coordinate twice:

shape.coordinates = new float[] {x1,y1,z1, x2,y2,z2,
                                 x2,y2,z2, x3,y3,z3};

Will a VisADLineStripArray allow me to do something like

shape.coordinates = new float[] {x1,y1,z1, x2,y2,z2, x3,y3,z3};

and if so, what should I use for vertexCount?

When I do the latter with vertexCount = 3, I get an error:

java.lang.NullPointerException:
        at
javax.media.j3d.GeometryStripArrayRetained.setStripVertexCounts(GeometryStripArrayRetained.java:37)
        at
javax.media.j3d.GeometryStripArray.<init>(GeometryStripArray.java:51)
        at javax.media.j3d.LineStripArray.<init>(LineStripArray.java:60)
        at
visad.java3d.DisplayImplJ3D.makeGeometry(DisplayImplJ3D.java:398)
...

Thanks,
Doug
