Mouse Hover Glow Issues

18 January 2015 22:43 #1108
Ok, so I have a scene with a cylindrical mesh with spheres around it and I've enabled mouse hover glow. I want each sphere to be able to glow, but the cylinder to obscure the spheres behind it so they cant be selected. I understand I can just make the cylinder selectable, but I dont want it to glow when the mouse hovers over it.





I found in the mouse module what controls hover glow intensity, so I tried to use if…else statements to choose which "selectable" objects (the cylinder) I wanted to have a glow intensity of 0, but I can't get it to work. Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Any Ideas?
Hi. Please take a look at this example.
   function init_cb(canvas_elem, success) {
       // . . .
       canvas_elem.addEventListener("mousemove", mouse_move, false);
       // . . .
    }
    function mouse_move(e) {
        var x = m_mouse.get_coords_x(e);
        var y = m_mouse.get_coords_y(e);
        var obj = m_scenes.pick_object(x, y);
        if (obj) {
             if (obj.name == "Cylinder")
                   m_mouse.disable_mouse_hover_glow();
             else 
                   m_mouse.enable_mouse_hover_glow();
         }
}

Hi. Please take a look at this example.
Please use get_object_name function to get the object name. The field .name is internal object property.
if (m_scenes.get_object_name(obj) == "Cylinder")
   var m_scenes    = require("scenes");
        // . . .
   function init_cb(canvas_elem, success) {
       // . . .
       canvas_elem.addEventListener("mousemove", mouse_move, false);
       // . . .
    }
    function mouse_move(e) {
        var x = m_mouse.get_coords_x(e);
        var y = m_mouse.get_coords_y(e);
        var obj = m_scenes.pick_object(x, y);
        if (obj) {
            if (m_scenes.get_object_name(obj) == "Cylinder")
                   m_mouse.disable_mouse_hover_glow();
             else 
                   m_mouse.enable_mouse_hover_glow();
         }
}
