FlashSettings Class

Settings that control how geometry is "flashed" when hovered over in a Viewport. When the user hovers the mouse cursor over an element (or other piece of geometry, like a reality mesh), a Tool visually indicates that it can interact with that geometry by "flashing" it. Flashed geometry changes color in one of the following two ways:

  • By mixing the viewport's hilite color as specified by Viewport.hilite with the geometry's own color; or
  • By brightening the geometry's own color (for lit geometry only - i.e., meshes displayed in a view with lighting enabled). The flash effect starts out at an intensity of zero and increases linearly over the period of time specified by duration until maxIntensity is reached.

@see - flashSettings to customize the flash behavior for a viewport.

  • Viewport.hilite to customize the hilite color used by FlashMode.Hilite.
