๐ŸŒ€ Creating custom dialog windows

3Dcoat allows you to make your own dialog windows in your scripts. You may put your own text and request some parameters thus making your script more flexible.

Lets make a horn, for example, by requesting parameters from user in a dialog window.

void main() {
// prepare scene
SculptRoom room;
// default settings
float angle = 10.0;
int numberOfChunks = 20;
// settings window
AddTranslation( "numberOfChunks", "Number of chunks in horn" );
AddIntInput( "numberOfChunks", true );
AddTranslation( "angle", "Angle" );
AddFloatInput( "angle", true );
bool ok = ModalDialogOkCancel( "Enter the horn parameters", "Create horn" );
if ( !ok ) {
// end of script
// create a figure with set parameters
PrimDensity( 0.3 );
for ( int i = 0; i < numberOfChunks; i++ ) {
capsule( -15, 0, 0, 15, 0, 0, 20, 20, 0 );
PrimRotateY( 0, 0, 0, angle );
PrimRotateX( 0, 0, 0, angle );
PrimTranslate( 0, 15, 0 );
PrimScaleAt( 10, 20, 30, 0.9, 0.9, 0.9 );
ProgressBar( "Please wait", (i * 100) / numberOfChunks );

Here will be no image in order to make you want to launch the script yourself ;)

For even more details check this functions list:

// Returns whole command line.
string getCommandLine();
// Stores some string as global value that may be read later in
// the session. The value will be stored in 3B file and you will
// be able to read in further work with this scene.
DEPRECATED void SetGlobalVar(string& Name,string& Value)
// Returns value previously stored using SetGlobalVar.
DEPRECATED string GetGlobalVar (string& Name)
// Returns scene filename (last saved or opened as 3B file).
DEPRECATED string GetSceneFileName()
// Sets scene filename for further saving.
DEPRECATED void SetSceneFileName(string& Name)

// Turn all volumes to surface mode.
DEPRECATED void surf();
// Turn current volume to the surface mode.
DEPRECATED void cursurf();
