can that be done? Toggling the smooth mesh preview checkbox in a shape's attribute editor via a mel command?I can't find a command in the script editor output, even with "echo all commands" turned on....
setAttr .displaySmoothMesh -mode-
Or have a look at the mesh node help.
thanks! That helps. But I'm looking at the node help right now and found .displaySmoothMesh, but the type is "enum", so I don't know what to specify as a value to toggle it on or off?
just use integers, 0 stands for OFF, 1 shows the mesh AND the smooth mesh, 2..., 3... etc
