Default Re: Authoring your own scripts

Hi,

Is it possible to show a menu after right clicking in a view? Can this be done with a script?

Thanks,
Bart

For a list of available commands, send AC3D a 'list' comand e.g.

Code:
ac3d list
Some tips

Rather than using 'toplevel' to create a new window, we recommend you use 'new_toplevel <windowpath> <title>'. This is a multi-platform friendly function. Using this means that the script will run on any platform. If you do not use this, the new window can easily get lost behind others.

Under Windows, set File->Settings->Advanced->show-windows-console on. Any puts output will be shown in the console window that will stay visible after AC3D starts.

This message is under construction...

Default Re: Script for right-click menu

Try this:

Code:
 
#make a popup menu
menu .rightmenu -tearoff false 
.rightmenu add command -label "Select All" -command "ac3d select_all"
 
# bind a right click (button 3) to view 0 (top left view window)
bind $ToglWinName(0) <3> { tk_popup .rightmenu %X %Y}

Oh but Tcl/Tk (pronounced 'Tickle Tick') is a language all on its own my friend. Have got a book in storage; (Big, Black, Thick one), will dig it out tomarrow. It has an old version of it included. But yes you are correct you can use a text-editor to write the scripts.
