Thanks Barry, I fully understand that. However I am still quite confused over the fundamental principles of how the scripts interact when it comes to 3D Hotspot editing.
What I am hoping to do is in simplest terms: make a hotspot a “drag button”, when triggered every time, it adds 1000mm to A. The button resets itself after each use.
if flip_switch then A = A + 1 flip_swtich = 0 endif
_unID = 1 hotspot 0, 0, 0, _unID, flip_switch, 1+128, flip_switch: _unID=_unID+1 hotspot -1, 0, 0, _unID, flip_switch, 3, flip_switch: _unID=_unID+1 hotspot flip_switch, 0, 0, _unID, flip_switch, 2, flip_switch: _unID=_unID+1 BLOCK A, B, ZZYZX
values "flip_switch" 0,1 if GLOB_MODPAR_NAME = "flip_switch" then parameters flip_switch = flip_switch parameters A=A endif
However I found that the interaction between Parameter Script/3D Script/GLOB_MODPAR_NAME very weird during 3D Hotspot operations, GLOB_MODPAR_NAME is triggered continuously before the user finishes with the edit. The example above triggeres flip_switch 8 times every time you touch it, and it does not reset itself to 0 either.
That’s why I am wondering if GLOB_FEEDBACK_MODE will be able to ensure that the editing is finished, THEN we reset the switch and change A.
However what I found out the hard way is that even when the user finishes editing (i.e. during the last parameter script run before everything ends), GLOB_FEEDBACK_MODE is still TRUE even though at that point editing has ended.
I probably could figure this out by some lengthy trials…
NOTE This is AC19 I am testing on though.
