    I try to use SendModelingCommand with the magnet tool. However, it returns false in any case.

    Can anyone show me a working example for using the magnet tool with SendModelingCommand? I'm not even sure how it is intended to work, because the magnet tool requires mouse input.

    Here's the code I'm using. I set all parameters, except two which I don't know what they are for and what type they are.

    // init ModelingCommandData
    ModelingCommandData mc;
    mc.doc = doc;
    mc.op = obj;
    mc.mode = MODIFY_ALL;
    mc.flags = 0;
    BaseContainer bc;
    mc.bc = &bc;

    // magnet tool parameters
    bc.SetBool(MDATA_MAGNET_NEAREST, false);
    bc.SetBool(MDATA_MAGNET_VISIBLEONLY, false);
    bc.SetBool(MDATA_MAGNET_CONNECTED, false);
    bc.SetBool(MDATA_MAGNET_PREVIEW, false);
    bc.SetLong(MDATA_MAGNET_MODE, MDATA_MAGNET_MODE_BELL);
    bc.SetLong(MDATA_MAGNET_RESTRICT, MDATA_MAGNET_RESTRICT_WORLD);
    bc.SetReal(MDATA_MAGNET_RESTRICT_X, 1);
    bc.SetReal(MDATA_MAGNET_RESTRICT_Y, 1);
    bc.SetReal(MDATA_MAGNET_RESTRICT_Z, 1);
    bc.SetReal(MDATA_MAGNET_FALLOFF_STRENGTH, 1);
    bc.SetReal(MDATA_MAGNET_FALLOFF_RADIUS, 100);
    bc.SetReal(MDATA_MAGNET_FALLOFF_WIDTH, 0.5);
    //bc.SetData(MDATA_MAGNET_SELECTED, );
    //bc.SetData(MDATA_MAGNET_FALLOFF, );

    if (!SendModelingCommand(ID_MODELING_MAGNET_TOOL, mc)) GePrint("Error");

    I'm afraid the magnet tool can only be used interactively by the user, not using SendModelingData()!

    Thanks. Then the ID_MODELING_MAGNET_TOOL id for SendModelingCommand is rather useless.
