Reacting to More User-Invoked Commands

Reacting to More User-Invoked Commands

When writing a reactor-based application, you need to handle any command that affects
your objects in a significant way. One of your program design activities should be
to review all possible AutoCAD editing commands and determine how your application
should respond to each one. The format of the reactor-trace sheet shown near the end
of Lesson 6 is very good for this purpose. Invoke the commands you expect your user
to use, and write down the kind of behavior with which your application should respond.
Other actions to plan for include

  • Determine what to do when users issue UNDO and REDO commands.
  • Determine what to do when users issue the OOPS command after erasing entities linked
    with reactors.

To prevent a very complex subject from becoming very, very complex, the tutorial does not try to cover all the possibilities that should be
covered, and the functionality within this lesson is kept to an absolute minimum.

Even though you won’t be building in the complete functionality for these extra commands,
examine what a few additional editing functions would require you to do:

  • If users stretch a polyline boundary (using the STRETCH command) several things should
    happen. It could be stretched in any direction, not just on the major or minor axis,
    so the boundary may end up in a very odd shape. In addition, you need to take into
    consideration how many vertices have been stretched. A situation where only one vertex
    is stretched will result in a polyline quite different from one in which two vertices
    are moved. In any case, the tiles must be erased and new positions recalculated once
    you determine the adjustments needed to the boundary.
  • If users move a polyline boundary, all the tiles should be erased, then redrawn in
    the new location. This is a fairly simple operation, because the polyline boundary
    did not change its size or shape.
  • If users scale a polyline boundary, you need to make a decision. Should the tiles
    be scaled up as well, so that the path contains the same number of tiles? Or, should
    the tile size remain the same and the application add or remove tiles, depending on
    whether the polyline was scaled up or down?
  • If users rotate a polyline boundary, all the tiles should be erased, then redrawn
    in the new orientation.

To begin, though, just plan for the following:

  • Warn the user upon command-start that the selected edit command (such as stretch, move, or rotate) will have detrimental effects on a garden path.
  • If the user proceeds, erase the tiles and do not redraw them.
  • Remove the reactors from the path outline.
NOTE: In addition to user-invoked AutoCAD commands, entities may also be modified or deleted
through AutoLISP or ObjectARX® applications. The example provided in the Garden Path tutorial does not cover programmatic
manipulation of the garden path polyline boundary, such as through (entdel <polyline entity). In this case, the editor reactor events:vlr-commandWillStart and :vlr-commandEnded will not be triggered.
