Icon Toolbar Python Script - script included.

Post by ideasman »

Hi, I wanted to have some python scripts a click away- just a simple toolbar,
This python scrip is fully GUI configurable, think of it like windows desktop shortcuts. It imports functions in other .py files, so you can import anything from the blender sdcritps dir, though it has its bpydata/pycons directory for icon scripts too.

It renders icons with alpha and tooltips... can select icon image from an icons subdir.
and can save configuration for restarting.
RightClick context menu
Middle click to drag
Left to execute
- Cheers.

Any chance of document explaining how to install this script?

I can't get it to run in Blender 2.36

thank you

it sounds cool.... but i'm not sure how to actually put a script on the toolbar.
Selecting "Add Icon" doesn't open up a fileselect window or import the included scripts.... would you like to provide some more detailed documentation? :)

Can't wait to try it out.

OKay, heres how it works

There are a few important files.

pycons.py -> /yourblenderscriptsdir
pycons_conf.py -> /bpydatadir/pycons
/icons/ -> /bpydatadir/pycons

files misc_menu.py and testus.py also go into -> /bpydatadir/pycons

The archive provided has a directory hiererchy that has correct relatice paths..

The menu its self is accessable for Wizards. theres a bug in BPython, start the icons at the lower half of teh screen.- if there at the top they wont render.
