Help Request

Post by tukuyomi » Mon Dec 08, 2014 12:32 pm

I need help to write a script in qcad3, but I can't wrap my head around this new language.
If I had a tiny script that I can use as a skelton, it would be very helpful to me to start coding for qcad3.

Right now, I draw my usual stuff in qcad3, but all my scripting stuff goes to a qcad2 inside a Debian VirtualBox.

If someone can write me a similar script for qcad3, I'll be very grateful to him!

The sole requirement that I have is that I DO need an external dialog, instead of the new toolbar feature provided by qcad, as my real scripts DO have a lot of options to (un)check / modify, to tweak my drawings (mainly for a CN machine).

Thanks for reading, and I hope someone will reply to my request.

(For reference, here is my qcad2 script) :

Code: Select all
