lock control: What is the purpose?

Post by w1lla » 11 Feb 2015, 01:35

I can lock for instance the graph but its never properly documented anywhere? Is it there as a test or to retrieve it by calling it through maniascript?

Hi w1lla,

the "lock control" button allows you to prevent a control from being selected in the editor.

It's id based, so it will lock any control with the same id from being selected, and if the control has no id, it will generate one (automatically generated ids are cleaned in the saved file).
A locked control can still be selected by holding Shift down while clicking (then you can unlock it with the "unlock control" button).

If you want to get more information on the goal of this feature, you can read the post where it was requested :

Have a nice day,
