Hi all...

i'm trying to make a script to interactively edit a selected polygon:

1) how to add choiches during the script?

for example during the "Box" functions, in the command line the user can clik:

Diagonal , 3Point , Vertical , Center as options, an then after also other sub-menus...

2) how to insert variable buttons like ctrl, shift, alt?

  or, if thoose buttons are too much "instable", how to use simple buttons like letters?

for example during a function if the user press "A" , the script will change etc...

Hi Riccardo,

These are the user interface functions available in RhinoScript:


The current SR4 release candidate contains a new GetOption method that allows you to prompt for command line options like the Box command.

this is gold, thanks!

what about single buton input via a simple letter or shift/ctrl/alt ?

Hi Riccardo,

RhinoScript does not have any function to return the state of special keys, such as Shift, Alt, or Ctrl. Why do you need this?

the user interface tools you listed here above are good, but a direct input such a single button press is way more faster and enjoiable by the user, using the left hand that usually can't do much...

contextual/popup menus are acessible only via mouse...

btw the script is building up well... the "rhino.popupmenu" is cool enough

can i ask you here how to post the script in .RVB format and where?

it will be a useful script (probably), to edit polylines , surfaces but mostly for hatches...

(P.S. someone have already did something similar to this^? i hope i havent worked for nothing..)

thanks for everything                      :D

Hi Riccardo,

You can configure Rhino shortcut keys to run scripts. Select Tools -> Options ->Keyboard, pick your favorite keyboard shortcut and then specify your macro or script  Is this what you want?

Also, we don't have a formal location where people post scripts they want to share. Some users post their scripts here:


I tend to put my examples here:


or here:


Others posted them on forums, newsgroups, or other sites.
