Description

Procedure GetPt switches the cursor to selection mode and allows the user to select a point in a VectorWorks document. This cannot be used if there is a function anywhere in the calling chain.
PROCEDURE GetPt(
VAR pX,pY  :REAL);
def vs.GetPt(callback):
    return None

Parameters

p REAL Returns coordinates of mouse click.

Remarks

In Python this function will NOT block execution. It will execute a callback function with the resulted point.

Example

PROCEDURE Example;
VAR
pt :POINT;
BEGIN
GetPt(pt.x, pt.y);
Message(pt);
END;
RUN(Example);

Python:

import vs;

def DoIt(h1):
	vs.AlrtDialog( "we're in", h1 )

def PickPointCallback(pt):
	vs.ForEachObjectAtPoint(DoIt, 0, 0, pt[0], pt[1], 5)

vs.AlrtDialog( "show let you pick a point, and then show a dialog with the object's handle" )
vs.GetPt( PickPointCallback )
