my first scripted tool may you try it!

hi every body , i have just developed my first scripted tool , i want to know if it really works fine
so here it is i wish you try it and give me your feed back

-clears the animation keys for any animation track (x, y , z) / for move , rotate, scale
within specified range for any number of selected objects
-reverse the key spacing for any track also within specified track......etc
-scale the time range for ........etc
-moves keys ....etc

*it clears any previous selection of keys before any operation
*it tests for the type of controller bezier xyz or list and gives warning if u select single track for tcb or bezier one
*if the object contains orientation or pos constraint it gives warning message for that
*it supports undo for all operations

ok that what i think i have done please try it and be generous for me by feedbacks

Don't be let down by the lack of responses - keep in mind that the overall nature of this forum section is more for getting help than for demonstrating one's scripts (challenges exempt).

Personally, for example, I hardly ever work with animation as it is.. and where I do have animation, I'd quite likely check what Track View has to offer first. So I'd have no immediate interest in your script.

That said, I know this post would be pretty useless to you with just the above, so I downloaded it and gave it a quick poking... the following is going to be my impressions as I work with it, so it's pretty random...

- Great that you're registering it as a dockable dialog. If I were to use such a tool, using it in a docked fashion is how I would most likely be using it.
- The UI is a bit on the large side - it feels like it was designed like an iPhone app.. huge buttons for lack of a stylus; but we do have a 'stylus' - the mouse. I think they could be a bit smaller and the UI thus a bit tighter.
( note that your 'All' buttons overlap the groupboxes a bit on the left )
- When I pressed Delete Keys -> Pos -> All, only the keyframe at frame 0 was actually deleted; then I realized that the 'Deleting Range' is set to 0 .. 0 by default. Perhaps you should default it to animationRange.start .. animationRange.end on opening?
- In your "whoops!" error message, you may wish to insert "\r\n" to put part of the error message on the next line - right now it's one very, very wide error message
( but at least you trapped for unsupported controllers, so that's a good thing! )

Other than the above notes, it seems to work 'as advertised'

Also, you should post it here as an attachment instead of rapidshare...
