View Full Version : panel

10 October 2006, 08:12 AM
Hai friends,

execute this script in the attached file, it shows that one instance of the panel is only allowed.

But if you execute in any other file its executing properly multiple times.

can any one say what could be the problem

string $whichPanels[] =`getPanel -sty renderWindowPanel`;

if (`window -exists ($whichPanels[0] + "Window")`)


deleteUI ($whichPanels[0]+"Window");




string $onet=`RenderViewWindow`;

Didn't you mean to attach a mel file?

No Martin,

create a new scene and run this script in that scene

it will toggle the RenderViewWindow and it executes properly

But if you run the script in that attached checkIt.mb file

it is showing error message

// Error: Only one instance of this panel type allowed: renderWindowPanel //

I tried, but i didn't encounter this problem.

Anyway, try deleteUI the renderViewWindow and do a check to see if it still exists.

I support it has more than 1 renderViewWindow in your scene

global proc btc_toggleRW()
if ( `window -exists renderViewWindow` )

deleteUI -window renderViewWindow;


tearOffPanel "Render View" "renderWindowPanel" true;

try this one.should have no problem
