Gets the current tool type for the class object's window.
The current tool type. Possible values are:
|TOOL_VECTOR_USERMODE||user tool type (default).|
|TOOL_VECTOR_SELECT||select tool - allows user to select individual objects in the vector.|
|TOOL_VECTOR_PANIMAGE||pan image tool - allows the user to pan the vector image by clicking a mouse button and dragging the mouse. The "pan cursor" will not appear if the image cannot be panned (i.e. - there are no scroll bars). If there are not scroll bars, press the PLUS key on the numeric key pad a few times to zoom until scroll bars appear.|
|TOOL_VECTOR_ROTATE||3d rotate toolallows user to rotate the vector, or individual objects within a vector.|
If the tool type is TOOL_VECTOR_SELECT, you can do the following:
Left-click and drag the mouse to define a rectangle. All objects in the defined rectangle are selected.
Right-click and drag the mouse to define a rectangle. All objects in the defined rectangle are un-selected.
Double clicking the left mouse button automatically selects all objects in the vector. NOTE: If creating the LVectorWindow as a window, the window style must include the CS_DBLCLKS style to receive double click messages.
Double clicking the right mouse button automatically un-selects all objects in the vector. NOTE: If creating the LVectorWindow as a window, the window style must include the CS_DBLCLKS style to receive double click messages.
When using the vector dialogs, only the currently selected objects are affected. If the SelectedOnly state is set to TRUE (LVectorWindow::GetSelectedOnly, LVectorWindow::SetSelectedOnly), then only selected objects will be scaled. If the SelectedOnly state is set to FALSE, then ALL objects are scaled.
Using the vector rotate tool:
Left-click and drag the mouse. If you move the mouse vertically (up and down), the vector image rotates up and down along an imaginary X-axis which passes horizontally through the vector. If you move the mouse horizontally (left and right), the vector image rotates left and right along an imaginary Y-axis which passes veritcally through the vector. Dragging the mouse at an angle results in a combination of these rotations.
Right-click and drag the mouse. The "rotate-Z" cursor appears. Dragging the mouse causes the vector to rotate in the XY plane (the plane that corresponds to the screen) along an imaginary Z-axis which passes through the center of the window.
