View Full Version : ProfessorXRef

03 March 2008, 10:32 PM
I've started rewriting the XRefScene Dialog piece by piece to add some missing basic functionality.

Here is the AddFunction as of today. It adds the ability to create a "gizmo" which is a little box around the bottom with the name of the max scene being imported.

Just though someone else might find it useful.

try(destroydialog ProfessorXrefAdd) catch()
global ProfessorXrefAdd
rollout ProfessorXrefAdd "ProfessorXref - Add File"
checkbox IgnoreLightCheck "Ignore Lights"
checkbox IgnoreCameraCheck "Ignore Cameras"
checkbox gizmoCheck "Gizmo" checked:true
button AddXrefScene "Add..." pos:[125,6] width:60 height:53
fn AddXRefObject XRefOpenName:undefined IgnoreLights:false IgnoreCameras:false gizmo:true =
if XRefOpenName != undefined do
ProfessorX = xrefs.addnewXRefFile XRefOpenName
ProfessorX.ignorelights = IgnoreLights
ProfessorX.ignorecameras = IgnoreCameras

if gizmo == true do
fn ControlGizmoMaker XRefSceneObject =
XRefFileName = getFilenameFile XRefSceneObject.filename
selectmin = [XRefSceneObject.tree.children.min[1], XRefSceneObject.tree.children.min[2], (XRefSceneObject.tree.children.min[3]+.25)]
selectmax = XRefSceneObject.tree.children.max
selectcenter =

SelectX = selectmax[1]-selectmin[1]
SelectY = selectmax[2]-selectmin[2]
SelectZ = selectmax[3]-selectmin[3]

new_rectangle = rectangle length:SelectY Width:SelectX
new_rectangle.pos = [SelectCenter[1], SelectCenter[2], SelectMin[3]]
new_rectangle.wirecolor = green = uniquename(XrefFilename+"_Rectangle_")

new_label = text text:XRefFileName size:6
new_label.wirecolor = green

New_label_offsetX = ((new_label.max[1] - new_label.min[1])/2)
new_label.pos = [(SelectMin[1]+New_Label_OffsetX), (SelectMin[2]-5),SelectMin[3]] = uniquename(XrefFilename+"_Label_")

new_group = group #(new_rectangle, new_label) name:(uniquename(XRefFileName+"_Gizmo_"))
return new_group

XGizmo = ControlGizmoMaker ProfessorX
ProfessorX.parent = XGizmo
return ProfessorX

on AddXrefScene pressed do
Filename = getOpenFileName types:"Open XRef Object (*.max)|*.max|"
