Activating the Paint tool in scripting


Easy. You do it like this:

# Python
Application.PaintTool()
# JScript
PaintTool();

The real question is “how would you know about this undocumented command?”.

There’s several ways.

  • Maybe you grepped through Application\DSScripts\*.vbs for “Paint” or “Tool” and found %XSI_HOME%\Application\DSScripts\tools.vbs
  • Maybe you searched Application.Commands for the regular expression /Tool/ig.
  • Maybe you searched the XSI mailing list (Paint Tool by script )
