    Masking/UnMasking areas with no cursor input

    This is a real cookie here. As far as the exposed Ruleset API goes, there's only:

    getMaskTool
    hasMask
    onMaskingStateChanged
    setMaskEnabled
    setMaskTool

    Under ImageControl.

    Now some of us are familiar with Steve Melton's (smelton) prototype FoW extension that created a pseudo dynamic lighting by automating Masking/Unmasking. I currently find myself in need of the ability to mask/unmask without cursor input, and Smelton's extension clearly did that... But how? I simply don't see handlers to enable that, or am I missing something?

    I think he actually built a grid of controls overlaying the image control dynamically. There is no direct access to the mask data.

    Ah, it makes sense now, especially with the grayed out area, a series of Images or widgets stretched to overlay the grid. That's actually very doable combined with his moving tokens via clicking on the area. My goal here was to create a pseudo polygon FoW tool since I was getting tired of the crappy free-draw.

    And so ends my extension sprint this weekend.
