Tool using TrackObject

Recommended Posts

I have a tool that places a point object after a click on an already existing object.  I would like to use TrackObjectN to filter the target objects.  All well and good except...

TrackObject does not start highlighting acceptable objects until after the first click.  Does anyone know how to trick it into starting to highlight objects as soon as the tool is selected?

There’s no secret, unfortunately, other than to create a menu command instead of a tool. This is actually what got me started on the SDK.
