gosh, this very frustrating :-(
All I want to do is to write a simple little helper plugin manipulating just 2 polygons. The functional code is just about 20 lines. To pack that into a COFFEE plugin shouldn't last longer than 1 hour considered that I'm fluent with a couple of programming languages including C++. Well, maybe a little more, but certainly not 2 days. I had the base structure for the pluggin up and running within half an hour, but now I'm really stuck with a serious lack of documentaion.
The examples given are sometimes plain wrong even for classes like BaseSelect, the whole documentation is only available online and seems not exactly up to date. AFAISee there's not a single example available for stuff like checking selections, or even handle them.
If someone could point me to good (or even bad) examples I would appreciate it, though I'll certainly not code anymore today (Sunday)
Is this ever going to change - and when? The docs are a *JOKE* when it comes to selections. Seriously: How should anybody (take programming and 3D experience for granted) find the way to the neccessary info bits? Where's the "code map" for this?
