texScaleContext [-position]

texScaleContext is undoable, queryable, and editable.

This command can be used to create, edit, or query a scale context for the UV Texture Editor. Note that the above flag controls the global behaviour of all texture editor scale contexts. Changing one context independently is not allowed. Changing a context's behaviour using the above flag, will change all existing texture editor scale contexts.

Return value

string: name of the context created

In query mode, return type is based on queried flag.
