    Hi
    I made small concept of realtime-switch command for simple brush tool
    Based at py-tag at PointOp.

    It simply switches mode between smear and if Shift pressed button - for smooth mode in brush tool

    import c4d  
    from c4d import plugins  
    from c4d.gui import GetInputState  
      
    def lkmtest() :  
      bc = c4d.BaseContainer()      
      rs = GetInputState(c4d.BFM_INPUT_MOUSE, c4d.BFM_INPUT_MOUSELEFT, bc)    
      if rs and bc[c4d.BFM_INPUT_VALUE]:  
          return True      
      return False  
    def shft_pressed() :   
      bc = c4d.BaseContainer()      
      rs = GetInputState(c4d.BFM_INPUT_KEYBOARD, c4d.KEY_SHIFT, bc)    
      if rs and bc[c4d.BFM_INPUT_VALUE]:  
          return True      
      return False  
    def main() :  
      actidtool = doc.GetAction()  
      toolPlugins = plugins.FilterPluginList(c4d.PLUGINTYPE_TOOL, True)  
      if actidtool == 1016202:           
          for plugin in toolPlugins:  
              if plugin.GetName()=="Brush":                  
                  while lkmtest() :  
                      if shft_pressed() :  
                          plugin[c4d.MDATA_BRUSH_MODE]=c4d.MDATA_BRUSH_MODE_SMOOTH  
                          c4d.EventAdd()  
                          break  
                      else:   
                          plugin[c4d.MDATA_BRUSH_MODE] = c4d.MDATA_BRUSH_MODE_SMEAR  
                          c4d.EventAdd()  
                          break
    

    Small question how can to replace FilterPluginList?
    findPlugin does not work, seems

    Is this code being used in a pyton tag. Or in your own tool plugin?
    If you're using it in a python tag. It's not working properly for me in R13.
    The problem is I'm not allowed to change a tool's attribute while the LMB is being held down.
    So what happens is the mode doesn't change until after I release the LMB. And that's too late.

    Does it work differently in later versions?
    Or are you maybe using this in a plugin instead?

    It works at R15
    Planning to make complex tool for tag- or tool-plugin for pyAPI
    And maybe port to CAPI or i do nothing, just for fun and improving of experience with pyAPI(i'm not programmer)

    OK. Thanks.
    I guess they added multi-threading for the python tag in R15. Because it doesn't work in R13.

    FYI. Just a heads up.
    If you use c4d.EventAdd() in a python tag's code. Then you're already running in an infinite loop.
    So you don't need to use while loops to check for key presses. Using "If" statements will be enough.
    Using while loops like that, when you're already running inside of a loop, can slow down your code execution.

    found, it did not work
    that i put while, while we work with mouse and we can switch to smooth

    I removed events in second version and really speeds up

    (sorry for my english)
