boxZoomCtx( object , [zoomScale=float])

Note: Strings representing object names and arguments must be separated by commas. This is not depicted in the synopsis.

boxZoomCtx is undoable, queryable, and editable.

This command can be used to create, edit, or query a box zoom context. If this context is used on a perspective camera, the field of view and view direction are changed. If the camera is orthographic, the orthographic width and eye point are changed. The left and middle mouse interactively zoom the view. The control key can be used to enable box zoom. A box starting from left to right will zoom in, and a box starting from right to left will zoom out.
