Track not active selection with Command Core Expressions [message #336688] Sat, 27 June 2009 19:38 Go to next message

Hy.

I use the declarative Command Core Expressions to enable/disable something.
With iterate/count/selection I could track an active selection, but as soon as the user clicks on
another view my item gets disabled again. Is there a way to only have my item disabled when the
selection is deselected (and not when just activating another view)?

Regards,
Kai

Depends on what is in your plugin.xml clause, could you show us your
snippet with the core expression?

Hi Paul.

I don't think it's a problem with the expression, but more with the variable "selection".
It only contains the active selection of the active view.
What I am looking for is a variable that contains all selections of all views (independent from if
that view is active or not). Is there such a variable?
As a workaround I just defined my own variable.

Right now there is no such variable. The current selection variable
tracks selection on a workbench window level, not on the view part level.
