|0003153||FreeCAD||Feature||public||2017-08-09 03:40||2018-08-26 18:38|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||0.17|
|Summary||0003153: Preselect: Show object label in status bar.|
|Description||It would be courteous for FreeCAD to show the object label of things that get pointed to, as well as their internal name, in the status bar:|
[code]Preselected: (Label) - pDocName.pObjectName.pSubName (x,y,z)[/code]
I am in the habit of naming (labelling?) my objects; It makes it easier for me to find my way around in my drawings. But occasionally FreeCAD declines to refer to my objects by my name.
I brought this up on the forum the other day [url=https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=23772]over here[/url]. I was ignorant at first, but after a couple of posts my issue was largely resolved. This request is just a bit of icing on the cake as it were.
The code you're looking for is in SelectionSingleton::setPreselectCoord, which you can find [url=https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/blob/77386684fb76c0d91ea05cc6a0e005d5d8441d21/src/Gui/Selection.cpp#L561]over here on Github[/url]
I didn't specifically check if the label is part of CurrentPreselection, but surely it would be.
