Show/Hide & Activate/Deactivate parameters In Obj Info Palette

Recommended Posts

Is the means to show/hide and activate/deactivate parameter fields (in the object information palette) part of the Vectorscript command set?

Or does one need to utilized the SDK to enable these types of functions?

If it is in Vectorscript, what class of function is it?

Are they Compiler related conditions like using IF?

????

No need for SDK.

If you want to show/hide/enable/disable parameters of your plugin you need to use the following code in event 41:

41:	BEGIN
vsoWidgetSetVisible(paramID,BOOLEAN);
vsoWidgetSetEnable(paramID,BOOLEAN);
vsoSetEventResult( -8 {kObjectEventHandled} );
END;

Another option is this:

Thanks guys.

I successfully utilized the SetParameterVisibility to hide or display parameters of my beam coping plug-in. By hiding optional parameters the object info palette is more readable for the majority of the plug-in's instances.
