View Full Version : commandinput and G-Toggle Subpatch

03-05-2008, 09:00 PM
It is weird that CommandInput("ModCommand_G-Toggle Subpatch") does not work, LW gives an error 'Unknown command:"CommandInput("G-Toggle".' But on the other hand, CommandInput("ModCommand_ToggleMetaBalls") works. LW9.2/9.3.1 same thing happens.

notice even the error message omits ' Subpatch', might be due to "ModCommand_G-Toggle Subpatch" command contains a space that lw doesn't seems to like in commandinput.

anyone managed to get this to work? or any workaround to execute the G-Toggle Subpatch command from within lscript.

Why not just use CommandInput("togglepatches")?

upon further testing, I've noticed that firing CommandInput("togglepatches") in layout will only work if there is only one mesh in the scene (not even multi-layer mesh).

I've found out that by making a modeler lscript that does the following :

@version 1.4
@name ToggleSubpatch


and then calling that script from layout via CommandInput("ModCommand_ToggleSubpatch") works nicely with multiple objects. wierd.

how do we execute modeler redo from within layout?
CommandInput("ModCommand_redo") ? doesn't work
but strangely CommandInput("ModCommand_undo") works.

another thing in layout, modeling commands seems to work in tris, is this the way it currently is, or is there a switch to make it work in quads? would be nice to be able to subdivide(FLAT) and get quads; from within layout.
