View Full Version : wierd problem - difference between selecting geometry & selecting helper

05 May 2008, 05:09 PM
this is kindof a wierd issue i am facing with: from the listener try this

select $Box01 -- This will take the focus off the listener window into the viewport

select $Dummy01 -- This wont take the focus off the listener

I am working on a selection script and I dont want my rollout to loose focus everytime i select a geometry object...

this problem doesnt exist if you select multiple objects

just found out that this happens only if the modify panel is open....

so for the time being this is what i am doing to change the panel

startObjectCreation box

you can also use...
max create mode accomplish the same thing.

However, if you just don't want the dialog / control to lose focus, look into
setFocus <UI element>

thanks for the one line code...

ideally i would like my rollout to never loose focus... but if the modify panel is open and i select a geometry object through my script takes the focus off my rollout.. all i want is that it shouldnt loose focus but at the same time not be restricted to close my rollout before working in the viewport again...
