cycling subobject modes

Would it be possible to make a script that cycles between subobjects modes in poly and spline with the mouse scroll (and a hotkey, of course)

Thanks!

I have no idea if this can be done or not, but just having either Ctrl or Caps key to toggle the activation of the scroll to flip thru subobjects. But hey, your script works great as it is!

Many thanks again Miauu, it's appreciated.

Unfortunately, the hotkey

Unfortunately, the hotkey can't be assigned to Caps Lock, Ctrl, Shift, Alt.
I realy like how easy is to assign hotkey to any key on the keyboard or any mouse button in Silo. Mouse with 5 buttons + Ctrl, Alt, Shift will gives more than 50 hotkeys, but in Max this is not possible.

Back to topic

I don't find this method very convenient, but.

Go to maxRoot/scripts folder and create new folder with name miauuScripts

Download the attachment, Unzip it and paste two files in the miauuScripts folder. Then drag and drop Macro_MouseWheelCycleSubobjectlevels.mcr in 3ds max. The script can be found in Customize - Customize User Interface - miauu category.

Works with Editabpe Poly, Editable Mesh objects, Edit Poly modifier, UnwrapUVW modiier. I suppose that will work with other objects and modifiers.

Not work with splines. When I have more times I will make it to work with spines.

Assigh a hotkey. When you run the script start scrolling the mouse wheel. As soon as you click with right mouse button in the viewports or click anywhere with the left muse button the script will stop work.

And the keyboard 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 button will go to the exact sub-object level.

You mean till five, because "6" is not assigned. I not know which object have 6 sub-levels.

Press "6" to exit sub object mode and return to object mode. But this not works in max2014. To go to object mode you have to press the button that is assigned for the current sub object level.
