"Preview Min Time" message

    What message do I receive, if the user changes the "Preview Min Time" in Project Settings or by using the slider in the Animation Toolbar?

    I am using a Command Plugin.

    Hi Pim,

    in a CommandData plugin, you won't get a message on changes of the Power Slider (or respective Project Setting changes).
    Actually the Message function of a CommandData plugin is used only in very special cases.

    You can use a MessageData plugin instead. There you get of course a EVMSG_CHANGE, but then you'd have to check the settings on every change.
    But there's also an undocumented message 1018484. This will be send on Power Slider changes. As this is undocumented, there's of course no guarantee, that it won't change in future (I have to say this).

    Thanks, I check the message in a message data and then a message to the command plugin.
    Thanks for the clear answer.

    It works fine. However I get 1018484 as much as a  EVMSG_CHANGE, what is the difference?
    What do you mean with " Power Slider changes".

    Hi Pim,

    I am terribly sorry. I hadn't expected this, but to be honest I also didn't test it. Well, I tested the reception of the message on the Power Slider changes (that's what we call the time slider below the viewport internally), but I didn't test, if the message is sent in all other situations as well.
    So, I'm afraid it's best to work with EVMSG_CHANGE instead.
    Sorry!
