I'm loving the current activity around XSI. This addition looks very nice and can prove to be quiet helpful. Thanks!

The updated site is better imo.

On the xPOP3 website you mention "Axialis Studio" twice, without further explanation (as far as I can tell).
Linking to the accompanying website might be a good idea to let everyone know what you're talking about...

I have Xpop menu in vbscript and want to add more than one line of code to the one of my menu item without make a command for it ?
example :

Code: Select all

Set item =  popup.AddItem ("Dragon", "ObjImport Application.InstallationPath( siUserPath ) & ""\Addons\XSI-Shelfy\Data\Obj\Dragon.obj"", 1, 0, False, False , False, False" )
this code will import my obj , i want to do many other things beside this import to the same menu item .

i hope my quesion is clear enough .

You have two options, either use a subroutine or function defined in the same file where you build the menu, and call that in the string, or you can put several commands inside the string and separate them with a ":"

Hi ..
Is there anyway to add a header and separator to the sub-menu ? or it's not supported , also it's nice if we can " Tear the menu " like softimage menu (Considere it a feature request ;) ) .
Thanks in advanced .

Hi,
AddHeader and AddSeparator should work fine in submenus,
pinning the menu would require a complete rewrite, the windows TrackPopupmenu function which I'm using doesn't support this.

Btw, here's a newer version of xpop that caches icons-- menus with many icons display much quicker.

Another little update, this one adds underlined sub menus/menu items (Thick underlines Softimage-Style, if you'd like to tweak the underline style, it's being drawn in lines 258-263 in XPOP32Plugin.py). Also adds some new icons for boolean operations (intersection, difference...)

Build your underlined menus using

item = xxxxyyy.AddItem....
item.underlined = true
item.underlinecolor = 0xFF0000

Share your custom menus :-bd !

Hello rray,

I'm writing a popup menu script using XPOP3.2.
I want to use my own icons.
But "LoadIcon" method does not seem to work.
It returns a error saying "no such method/property supported." (in Japanese. See the pic)

(SetIcon method works fine BTW.)


Do you have any idea?
Thank you.

Hello Junki!
My mistake - I forgot to add LoadIcon as a public method, please go to XPOP30Plugin.py and edit line 18 from this:
_public_methods_ = ['SetIcon', 'EnableItem']
to this:
_public_methods_ = ['SetIcon', 'LoadIcon', 'EnableItem']

That should do it
