Feature Request

Toggle Dock

Submitted by:JonDoe257 JonDoe257
Hi Spencer, Let me start by saying, I love your Arc Tracker script man. I know it's been a long time since you created it but myself and a lot more people have come to love this tool over Maya's own editable motion trails. Thank You for keeping it simple and accessible. I enjoyed going through the code and seeing how clean it was written. A small request I always had in the back of my mind was to make ArcTracker remember it's docked state and then have it be "Toggle-able" like Maya's Attribute Editor, Channel Box, Tool Settings Docks, Etc. I'm not so good at code but I tried a while back with no success. And I was checking back for some updates on the script when I noticed you're back. Here's a toggle script for another great tool, AnimSelector by Luca Fiorentini. He also wrote this code after request and it really helps the workflow to have a tool like this docked and then toggle it on/off as you work. import maya.cmds as mc import animSelector if mc.dockControl('pickerDock', q=True, exists=True): pickerDockState = mc.dockControl('pickerDock', q=True, visible=True) mc.dockControl('pickerDock', e=True, visible=(1 - pickerDockState)) else: animSelector.PickerUI() It's in python but I'm guessing something like that for ArcTracker would really do the trick. So in brief, [+] Toggle ArcTracker Dock On/Off. [+] Remember Docked state between Maya sessions. [+] Remember objects added to tracker list in scene between sessions. (No biggie but would be cool to have) Hope this wasn't too much to ask but I always felt it would take the script up a whole new level. Nevertheless it's an awesome script and thank you, for all the effort. Take it easy and have a great week. =) - JonDoe257

    Thanks for comments. Glad you like the script. Dock arctracker110.mel using the dock/undock buttons. I have rewritten the script using python and have added all of these suggestions to it: - Toggle ArcTracker Dock On/Off. - Remember docked state between Maya sessions - Remember objects added to tracker list in scene between sessions I am not yet sure if the new script will be free or where I would be sharing/selling it Thanks, Spence
