texRotateContext is undoable, queryable, and editable.

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

Return value
