Get Currently Selected Object(s)

Mon 15. May 2017, 23:11

I have a custom window which I want to use to display extra information about the selected object. I see no obvious way to get the currently selected object, though. I could workaround this by adding a button to the context menu, as GetMenuEntries provides the currently selected objects, but this is clunky. Ideally I would like the user to be able to click an object and have the custom window populate with the new object's data.

I could see maybe a Query returning the list of selected objects, but I don't know what my query would be.

Is there any way to accomplish this?

Starting with version 1.3 of the ArticyDraft3.MacroDevKit nuget package you can override the method

Code: Select all
public override void SelectionChanged( List<ObjectProxy> aObjects, SelectionContext aContext )

in your plugin (requires articy:draft 3.1.6)

Using this method you get informed each time a selection is changed by user interaction.
