Note: This documentation is for the development version of X3DOM. Released versions: 1.5, 1.4, 1.3, 1.2.


The X3D element supports attributes and a param tag which allows to set configuration for the runtime.


The param element behaves just like any other HTML element. It must be nested below the X3D element. For XHTML you can use the self-closing syntax, for HTML a closing tag is mandatory:

    <param name="showLog" value="true" ></param>

Note: The param tag used to live as child of the scene element. This behavior has been changed with version 1.3 of X3DOM. You will get a deprecation warning and support will be removed in 1.4.
