Tag Plugin - Doubleclick Tag

Hi all,

is there a way to capture input events on a tag's icon, like doubleclicks? Similar to the Texture Tag that forwards to the associated Material when being double clicked, I'd like to call a function inside the tag plugin when double clicked.

Hi Michael,

well, you can't capture the input events, in the sense of all different kinds of input events.
The double click on the icon of a BaseList2D based entity (objects, tags,...) is available though. In "SDK speak" it's called the edit action and results in MSG_EDIT (in C++ docs, there's some more info and a small snippet which should be easy to convert to Python).
You can also initiate the edit action by calling Edit() on your tag.
