I don't know whether this is a correct question or not, but I played from two days on this problem and still I didn't find a solution.

Mathematica graphics

The save button is enabled whenever we have to specify width,length,height and middleheight of a Graphics3D.

Graphics3D appears whenever we have clicked on the save button depending upon width, length, height and middleHeight values.

This is my application concept.

For this purpose I wrote a huge amount of code, but I show here only a little bit of the code related to Graphics3D and also the sizes of the Buttons,InputFieldsand the application-window Size.

             Manipulate[designSpace, Paneled -> False,AppearanceElements -> None
                       ](*Manipulate is closed here*),
         Scrollbars -> {Automatic, Automatic},AppearanceElements -> None, ImageSize -> {560, 310},Alignment -> {Center, Center}
            ](*Pane is closed here*)
       ](*Dynamic is closed here*)

Note:In the code designSpace is Graphics3D related code.

The application window size is {580,480}, Buttons,InputFields sizes {160,60}, pane size {560,310}.

Concept-wise it is working fine but the problem is:

  1. InputFields and Buttons are blinking at the Graphics3D rotation time.

  2. Some orange box appears around the InputFields,Buttonsand Graphics3D whenever we have to double click on the application.

  3. If we have clicked on any wall of Graphics3D.createDialog will appear in that we have to specify the positions, some Image overlap on that wall depending upon that specification.

The third point concept is not working. This overlaps with the concepts that I already asked about in my earlier posts, but I still don't get it.

  • $\begingroup$ Could you please try to come up with a minimal working example with buttons and all (we don't need the whole Graphics3D code, a simple box will do)? $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 21, 2012 at 19:57
  • $\begingroup$ Doesn't the orange box go away when you click outside the image? $\endgroup$

Try Graphics[Circle[]] // Deploy

Or if you want rotation of 3D graphics as usual but are just annoyed by the selection showing, you could wrap everything in //Style[#, ShowSelection -> False]&

  • $\begingroup$ This comes not even close to mimicking the OP's situation. How can you be sure it does any good? If not, I'd post this as a comment. $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 21, 2012 at 21:01
  • $\begingroup$ @Sjoerd but doesn't Deploy prevent the orange border? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Mr.Wizard I didn't really understand what the OP meant there, but I now see he means the standard selection box. Deploy will help there, but it's totally unclear (given the question details provided so far) whether it will help wit the two other issues. $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 21, 2012 at 21:09
