Best approach to building heads-up text


I want to create a “view mode” that displays some metadata from the UserDictionary of scene objects.
This is how I imagine it should work:

  • User activates viewing mode.
  • A label/text is displayed in the center of each object. The text is fetched from the UserDict of each object.
  • When the user is done “inspecting”, she quits the mode, and the labels/texts disappear again.

What’s the best way to do this with RhinoCommon? A Custom Conduit? Or something else?

Yes, a command-activated display conduit seems a good way to go.

Take a look here for some example codes on display conduits to get you started.

Great! Just wanted to verify that’s the best approach. Thanks!
