    I want to draw for example a circle in the Draw Method of my ToolPlugin. I am trying to use
    bd->SetPen(Vector(200,0,0));
    bd->Circle2D(40,40,10);
    but that doesn´t seem to work at all. Do I need anything else? (or is there a way to draw a circle with XORLines without using "a thousand" commands to draw?)
    Thanks

    Your code works fine for me. It draws a red circle. (Btw, the color components should be between 0 and 1.) Could you post some more source?

    Hi, thats all I got in the draw method. I am also returning DRAW_HANDLES|DRAW_AXIS at the end.
    bd->SetPen(Vector(200,0,0));
    bd->Circle2D(40,40,10);
    return DRAW_HANDLES|DRAW_AXIS;
    Any idea? :\

    No, that's what I have too. Do you have anything selected in the scene? Please try it with an empty scene and see if the result is the same. Also, please remove other functions from your tool plugin or post the entire plugin. (To rule out other factors.)
    Does it matter which drawing functions you use? Does the 3D ones work better? (E.g. Circle3D.)

    yes an object is selected. But deselecting everything doesn´t help.
    I have removed anything but the draw function and it still doesn´t work. Circle3D doesn´t work either. :(
    This is the code without any other functions:
    #include "c4d_toolplugin.h"
    #include "c4d_basedraw.h"
    #define TEST_ID 1111111
    class LiquidToolData : public ToolData
    {
     public:
        virtual Bool   Draw(BaseDocument *doc,BaseObject *actu_op, BaseDraw
    };
    Bool LiquidToolData::Draw(BaseDocument *doc,BaseObject *actu_op, BaseDraw *bd, BaseDrawHelp *bh, BaseThread *bt,LONG flags)
    {

    bd->SetPen(Vector(1,0,0));
     bd->Circle2D(40,40,10);
     return DRAW_HANDLES|DRAW_AXIS;
     
    }
    Bool RegisterPrimitiveTool(void)
    {
      String name="Test";
     return RegisterToolPlugin(TEST_ID,name,0,"test.tif","Test",gNew LiquidToolData);
    }
    It still doesn´t work :\

    AHHHHHHHHH, I guess i got it. I still got the R7 Draw function in there BaseObject *actu_op and the return Value is Bool.
    I will try changing it to the R8 method would be a good start I guess :)
    I will try it

    Hihi, yes that was the problem. The draw function never worked. :)
    Da**. I really thought I was too stupid (well actually I was :)
    Thanks for your patience!
    Best

    This is the wrong signature! Your function is never called, since it doesn't have the same parameters as the one you want to overload in ToolData. Strangely enough there's no compiler warning for this in MSVC. Change it to the following to make it work:

        
        
        virtual LONG Draw(BaseDocument *doc, BaseContainer &data, BaseDraw *bd, BaseDrawHelp *bh, BaseThread *bt,LONG flags)  
        {  
         bd->SetPen(Vector(1,0,0));  
         bd->Circle2D(40,40,10);  
         return DRAW_HANDLES|DRAW_AXIS;   
        }
