Pausing menu for user interaction

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to get a menu command to, based on a dialog choice, pause for user interaction in the drawing.  I'm successfully calling RunTempTool(), but while the tool initializes immediately, the tool doesn't run until after the menu's DoInterface event completes.


Is there a way to either tell the menu to wait until the tool has completed or the tool to pause other actions until the tool is complete?


I suppose I could move the end of the menu call into a function that the tool could also call on completion, but there would be a lot of data to pass to the function when I only want to retrieve a point location and an angle.
