    I have asked this question before and I remember that ViewportSelect was part of the answer ,  but how do I make it so that the user can select polygons, edges, or points, by clicking on them?

    I'm thinking I will need to somehow use

    GetNearestPoint(), GetNearestPolygon, and GetNearestEdge()

    Could someone help me get started with this?

    Thanks.,

    Hi,

    actually i dont really know, but another part of the answer might be to set a special flag in the RegisterToolPlugin call: PLUGINFLAG_TOOL_HIGHLIGHT.

    And maybe you also have to return DRAW_HIGHLIGHTS from your Draw function.

    thats just me guessing though, never used that stuff myself..

    greetings,
    Daniel
