Interactive Rollout Builder

12 votes
Date Updated: 

The visual maxscript editor has issues... doesn't make nice code and is generally useless.  So instead I made this...

Visit my facebook page for more info

Run the mcr file and find it in your customise user interface windows under 'DW Tools'

Version 1_0 - Release
Version 1_1 - Bug fixed which could allow nested groups, which maxscript doesn't like and would therefore crash.
Version 1_2 - Released unencrypted so that it works in 3dsmax 2017 and well... because who doesn't like to learn (judge) from other people's code....

Version 1_3 - Bug Fix: Deleting groups now works...
Bug Fix: Data is maintained when you open/close/open the tool
Main UI is now resizable
ProgressBar Control switches orientation automatically
ListBox, MultiListBox, ComboBox and Dropdownlist now have move item up/down controls.

 Version 1_4 - More Rollout properties exposed, Bugs fixed with escape characters, duplicate names of controls bug removed. 
New Feature: Store and load UIs, have live resize information saved, 



Version Requirement: 
Only tested on 3dsmax 2016 but should work for all versions.

Yeah I added some stuff to make the selected control change to the next in the list when you remove a control and it appears the double status of the group in the list is messing it up... I've recreated the error so will fix asap!

Couldn't be bothered to figure out why it didn't work with encryption so just released it unencrytped...

Tested it on 3dsmax 2017 this morning and could reproduce the bug.... but only with the encrypted version. I'll just release it unencrypted to get around this problem.
