Hi all,

It would be great if there was a parameter for whether the VFB is on or not because at the moment the CoronaRenderer.CoronaFp.showVfb can only be used to open the VFB.  I would like to be able to toggle this - at the moment I have a keyboard shortcut to open the VFB and I would like to be able to use the same keyboard shortcut to close it too.  Is this possible?

Thanks,
Park

The showVfb() function accepts bool parameter selecting whether VFB should be actually showed or closed (see https://corona-renderer.com/wiki/maxscript for details). It does not work?

Hi,

I am not experienced with maxscript at all but in the listener it returns 0 whether the VFB is open or closed.  The boolean parameter works to open or close it but how would I implement this in a script that would allow me to use the same keyboard shortcut to toggle the VFB?

Thanks,
Park

It does not work?

The issue here is, that you cannot query the state. Also see

Give us tools to create tools please.

Good Luck
