Move CPlane

Demonstrates how to move a CPlane in the active viewport.

class MoveCPlanePoint : Rhino.Input.Custom.GetPoint
{
  readonly Rhino.DocObjects.ConstructionPlane m_cplane;
  public MoveCPlanePoint(Rhino.DocObjects.ConstructionPlane cplane)
  {
    m_cplane = cplane;
  }

  protected override void OnMouseMove(Rhino.Input.Custom.GetPointMouseEventArgs e)
  {
    Plane pl = m_cplane.Plane;
    pl.Origin = e.Point;
    m_cplane.Plane = pl;
  }

  protected override void OnDynamicDraw(Rhino.Input.Custom.GetPointDrawEventArgs e)
  {
    e.Display.DrawConstructionPlane(m_cplane);
  }
}
