IMPORTANT: critical upgrade to Fredo6 scripts (grayout menu)

IMPORTANT: critical upgrade to Fredo6 scripts (grayout menu)

Postby fredo6 » Thu May 06, 2010 11:52 pm

I am sorry to say that some of my scripts were heavy contributors to the problem of menu gray-out which has been reported by many users (see thread http://forums.sketchucation.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=27941#p242263. I fixed the faulty code.

WHETHER YOU USE MY SCRIPTS OR NOT, I would strongly advised users to upgrade the following scripts to their latest versions, all dated 6 May 10.

LibFredo6 --> v3.4c (the most critical)
ToolsOnSurface --> 1.6a
RevertCurve --> version 6 May 10
DxfTransformation --> version 6 May 10
MarkVertices --> version 6 May 10

In principle, you don't need to upgrade the other scripts (FredoScale, RoundCorner, HoverSelect, GhostComp, JointPushPull, BezierSpline, etc...).

Again, receive my apologies for the inconvenience.

Fredo

PS: even if you don't use the scripts, you still need to upgrade because the faulty code is executed whenever you do a right click in the SU selection tool (This small code is the one that makes the contextual menu appear for FredoScale and other scripts).

Apparently there is a limit of how many UI::Command objects one can create; 1000.
So the rule of thumb would be to sparse with these.
But the big no-no would be to never create UI::Command objects within the context handler.

I hope one of the Googlers can add warnings in the API docs about UI:Command objects.

Thanks Fredo for this very quick fix. Your plugins are part of my every day productivity, so it's nice to be able to enable them again. :thumb:

RevertCurve is published on SCF. See http://forums.sketchucation.com/viewtopic.php?f=323&t=25710&hilit=plugin

The two others are published elsewhere, but I will put them on SCF too.

These are small scripts, but they each add +1 in the count of commands when you do a right click.
