Hey guys,
I'd like to try out the functions in this class. But I can't figure out the proper way to construct it.

Example from the docs:  x, y = win.Screen2Local()

That really doesn't help much. Since it doesn't say where "win" comes from. Or show how to instantiate the class. And the function doesn't even work substituting values for x&y.

This is my best guess where "win" comes from. But I can't figure out how to use any of the functions in it:

import c4d  
  
def main() :  
  
  win = c4d.gui.EditorWindow  
  win.Local2Screen(100,200) #Error: requires a c4d.gui.EditorWindow object

Appears to be wrong.
Can anybody offer some small example how the Local2Screen() function is supposed to be written?

Basedraw has a GetEditorWindow member.

i don't think you can just create an instance of editorwindow like in your example.

Hi Scott!

  1. You have missed the parantheses used to instantiate the class.

  2. Anyway, you cannot instantiate the c4d.gui.EditorWindow class. It must be obtained from a c4d.BaseDraw object or used in methods were it is given as a parameter (e.g. draw-functions).

  3. Screen2Local() and similiar methods do not accept arguments, but return a tuple of 2 values that define the offset, i.e. the values you have to add to the values you want to convert.

bd     = doc.GetActiveBaseDraw()
win    = bd.GetEditorWindow()
ox, oy = win.Local2Screen()
print 200+ox, 100+oy

Cheers,
