need geometric or mathematic genius ;-)

Post by DesignDevil »

hello again.

I following my idea to create a "MagicBox" Plugin for tS 6.6 (Modeler side). Well i am so far that i have the widget created. Was a long journey thrue all this SDK stuff but here it is:

Now is question how i can positioning this widget on the top right corner of the actual view window? I want that it stays in position and size and just rotates with the view. Like the GlobalPanel - it does the same.

Is any genius here which has a starting point for me how i could calculate this? No matter if you don't know all functions from the sdk - there are a lot. Just so far:

The widget is positioned like other objects in the 3D space.

There are also functions to translate the 'eye' coordinates into 3d world coordinates

...and many more.

Maybe it could also help if anybody could do it in TS7 workspace with the LE, the base of information should be the same.

What do you mean with "object" ? The sourcecode?

hihi ... yes, i would say any cube with color will do the same.

My problem is to abstract the "3d thinking" - i have no experience with that. I spend a lot of time to read tutorials about OpenGl and such things but i don't understand all this stuff right now - not yet.

To this comes the "thinking of" from caligris programmer and what they means with all the functions. Because there are no samples or tutorials to find and the amount of plugin developer is .... well, you know.

Conclusion: develope plugins for tS is heavy stuff at this times ;)
