Class: Sketchup::DefinitionObserver

Inherits:
EntityObserver show all

Overview

This observer interface is implemented to react to component definition events. To implement this observer, create a Ruby class of this type, override the desired methods, and add an instance of the observer to the definitions of interests.

Examples:

# This is an example of an observer that watches a specific definition
# for new component insertions.
class MyDefObserver < Sketchup::DefinitionObserver
  def onComponentInstanceAdded(definition, instance)
    puts "onComponentInstanceAdded(#{definition}, #{instance})"
  end
end

# Attach the observer
Sketchup.active_model.definitions[0].add_observer(MyDefObserver.new)
