GLOB_CONTEXT question

Anonymous

Does anyone know the function of GLOB_CONTEXT = 22, 23, 24 etc? What is meant by "editing feedback mode" and how can it be used? I would like to have something drawn in plan only while the part is being modified by a dynamic hotspot. I'm pretty sure this won't work, but I'm curious what those values are good for.

Hi Matthew,

For example, if GLOB_CONTEXT = 22 then circle2 0, 0, 1
In floor plan view, a dotted circle (or any poly2 outline) will be displayed only while you move a graphical hotspot.
I think this is what GS calls "editing feedback mode".

Notice that text2 or hotspot2 won't show.
Same thing in 3D view for GLOB_CONTEXT = 23

Suppose you have a "model surface" object, a half sphere. It can not perform SEOs.
model surface
cutplane
sphere 1
cutend

if GLOB_CONTEXT = 43 or GLOB_CONTEXT = 44 then 
	model solid
	cutplane
	sphere 1
	cutend 
endif
This allows the object to perform SEOs (section or 3D view), despite it is a "model surface" object.

Thanks Olivier. That's what I was hoping for but haven't gotten it to work yet. I'll have to give it another try.

I tried it again and it worked. YAY!

Thanks again Olivier.
