Hatch pattern list

Hello is there way to collect all hatch patterns in a drop down menu in Python and assign one pattern to an object and assign a pattern in a table row on the UI ?


not sure if this is what you want, it asks to pick on a hatch pattern, displays a popup menu of all pattern names and assigns the picked hatch pattern. It also updates the UI in properties:

import rhinoscriptsyntax as rs
def HatchPatternChanger():
    # pick a hatch pattern
    rc = rs.GetObjectEx("Pick a hatch pattern", rs.filter.hatch, False, True)
    if not rc: return
    hatch_id, pre_selected, selection_method, pt, view_name = rc
    # get picked hatch pattern name and all hatch names
    current_hatch_name = rs.HatchPattern(hatch_id)
    hatch_names = rs.HatchPatternNames()
    # create modes for the popup menu
    modes = [3 if current_hatch_name == n else 0 for n in hatch_names]
    # popup a menu
    index = rs.PopupMenu(hatch_names, modes, pt, view_name)
    if not index >= 0: return
    # assign the picked hatch pattern
    rs.HatchPattern(hatch_id, hatch_names[index])



Hi clement,

Many thank. This is what I was looking for “rs.HatchPatternNames()”.

By the way I started working on it but did not get through from Rhino Common.

import rhinoscriptsyntax as rs
import Rhino
names = List[str]()
hatchList = Rhino.DocObjects.Tables.HatchPatternTable 
#: IEnumerable<HatchPattern>, IEnumerable

def get_names():
  hatchList = Rhino.DocObjects.Tables.HatchPatternTable 
  return hatchList 

for name in get_names():
  print name
