Temporary symbol for tool action

Recommended Posts

I want to have an interaction somewhat like the protractor in the rotate tool, where the user sets the insertion and rotation of a reference object. Has anyone done something similar?


One thought is to create s temporary symbol and call the symbol insertion tool, but I don’t want the user options available in the mode bar. 


The other thought would be to create a plug-in object and accompanying tool for the sole purpose of inserting the reference object, but that seemed like a lot of extra code. 


Is there a Draw() function that can draw a symbol preview for a tool?
