How to handle mouse-hover events using featurescript?


Is it possible to write custom-featurescript to handle mouse hovering events? Just like draft analysis display as shown below:

I'm working on custom feature that does some analysis and the idea is to display results in the viewer while user moves mouse on the face. 

Any idea would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Nathaniel

    Hi @nathaniel_jayavanth - it is not possible - FeatureScript is for creating geometry.

    Draft analysis and mouse hover event is all server side code - FeatureScript is not able to do this.

    OK. I hope we can expect this functionality in future.

    This is not technically possible using FeatureScript.
