Default Hide selection

Hello Andy,

Im doing some object building using network connections towards AC3D.

Now i have an automated resize matrix to resize the object, though i
dont want to see everytime the "Select Color" when i select the object
to be resized.. Is there a way to resize the object without "selecting" or
without seeing the "select color"..

Im using it for building an interactive display but the viewer/people
should not see that im selecting objects everytime in the 3D window...

Any hint?

im currently using

select_by_name
...
unselect_by_name


Would be nice to have an "object_size_to <name> x y z"
instead of size_to <x y z> which demands the select_by_name...

Regards, Norman.

The commands mostly duplciate what the users can do from the UI so the operations are visible and the views redrawn.

Moving things without the user seeing is a bit nasty for the user, but are you saying that you want to perform some external operations and then refresh the views with the result i.e. to prevent screen flickering and the user seeing each individual process happening?

There are no commands to do this at the moment but they can be added.

Let us know more about what you want to accomplish.
