DescriptionProcedure GetRect3D draws a temporary "rubberband" 3D rectangle on the working plane. The user defines the rectangle by selecting two points which define the top left and bottom right of the rectangle. This cannot be used if there is a function anywhere in the calling chain.
VAR p1x, p1y, p1z :REAL;
VAR p2x, p2y, p2z :REAL;
def vs.GetRect3D(useWP, callback): return None
p1x, p1y, p1z REAL Returns coordinates of first user click. p2x, p2y, p2z REAL Returns coordinates of second user click. useWP BOOLEAN TRUE if the returned point have to be on the active Working Plane. Snapping to arbitrary 3D geometry will produce vertical projection result on the WP; FALSE if the point can be arbitrary 3D point (produced, for example, by snapping to a 3D geometry)
RemarksIn Python this function will NOT block execution. It will execute a callback function with the resulted rectangle (two points as callback function parameters).
ExamplePython sample is similar to the sample in VS:GetPt.
