Hi all,
I am trying to figure out a way to show my HUD in the following format:

Selection:[ button ]


A label on the left and a button on the right. I could use the
headsUpDisplay command for the label on the left, and hudButton
for the button on the right, but not together...

Is the a way to achieve this. What I am hoping to achieve is for example:

Material: [ myBlinnMat ]


By selecting an object, it will display the material of the object as the label
of the button. Hitting the button will then open up Attribute Editor of the
material.

Hope someone out there could provide me a hint.

Thanks,
Zin

Unfortunately I don't believe this is possible. The hudButton is pretty restrictive in that it only supports a button and a button label.

do you really need the label?

incidentally, what happens if the selection has multiple shaders?
