Creation Command

The Tool Operation can provide a creation command that will be executed to handle the creation of the tool operation item. This allows things like dialogs to be created to ask the user for input, or to create graph connections on creation. To define a creation command, the following server tag should be added to the mesh operation server, the value of the tag should be the command to execute.

#define	LXsPKG_MESHOP_CREATECMD		"meshop.create"
