Default A simple dialog?


since AC3D is x-platfrom, using a MessageBox windows function is not what you might want, right?
Is there a way in my export filter to load a file and then have the option to store the current model as key-frame #2 e.g.?
I would have to write some text, input a number and have buttons "OK", "Append", "Cancel"...
I think I should use TCL, but I've never used it and am not really keen on learning it. Can you help me out?

Hi Gernot,

Well you'll have to be prepared to learn something

Luckily tcl/tk is very simple.

Look at the centre.tcl file in the plugins folder - that's what gets run when you select the centre plugin from the tools menu (provided you have the plugin pack installed).

Also, look at Frank's tcl file for the direct X export plugin.

And, have a look in the tcl folder - that's where AC3D's UI is defined.

If you have any questions, ask here.
