Show Active Constraint

This script will show in the left corner of the active viewport the currently used(active) Cosntraint type. It supports Editable Poly object and Edit Poly modifier.

The script works as a toggle.

Put miauushowactivecosntraintinviewportStartUp.ms in maxroot/scripts/Startup folder so the constraint always shows.

 

You can install only the miauushowactivecosntraintinviewportStartUp.ms. This way the script will be always active during the current max session.

If the miauushowactivecosntraintinviewport.mcr is installed, you can control the startUp script with it.

Requested by Haider of Sweden in this thread.

The script is updated.
Now the active constraint will be shown if the object is an Editable Poly and it have modifiers applied to it and those modifiers are not Edit Poly.
If the obejct have Edit Poly modifiers, the active cosntraint for the top-most Edit Poly modifier will be shown.

@barigazy. Sorry if it seemed like I missed your point, I never meant so. I cannot speak for others, but I know that I am very grateful for all the help I got, both directly for me, or requested by others.

Kind regards

We're not talking about any kind of popularity here.
All requested scripts are free and many other users besides requester will find this tool useful. Here's more about respect for the author who "grants wishes"

There is a way to see the most popular scripts by votes(user points) and/or by hits. On top of the http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts you can see "tabs" Date Updated, Date Submited, Comments, Title(A=Z), Hits, Votes. The last two tab is waht you lokking for. :)

@barigazy: no one wants to vote. :)

Maybe people dont know about it. I +1:ed just now and will do on all the great scripts downloaded before and coming in the future.

If there was a function that showed the amount of downloaded scripts, then one would know how popular it is. :)

Kind regards

I also wondering why this happens, not only with this script. There are a lot of examples on scriptspot. :)
But, most important is that the someone use the scripts and find them useful.

In upcoming Max 2015 we can expect and receive more new bugs. I doubt that they will fix old bugs. But, as you know, this is tne MAX.

>>But with your script, on

>>But with your script, on max2013 and max2014, I can change only the color of the vertices. The color of the faces stays unchanged.

Seems in Nitrous selection color is totally broken :( So its makes useless my script for 2013-2014 max with Nitrous. Maybe selection color will be fixed in upcoming 2015 max...

 

>>Why you made your script to not works when you reset Max, reload new scene, etc?

I have no time to do this, that's why script not released for public.
