objectDrawable object to be added.

bool removeDrawable(Drawable *node)#

Remove child node, this node will no longer be deleted.


nodeNode to be removed.


True if the node was removed, false if it was not found.

index – The index of the child.


A pointer to the child node, or nullptr if the index is out of range.
