keyin Accessor StaticReadOnly string ViewClipTool Get the localized keyin string for this Tool class. This returns the value of "tools." + this.toolId + ".keyin" from
its registered Namespace (e.g. "en/MyApp.json").
maxArgs Accessor StaticReadOnly undefined | number ViewClipTool The maximum number of arguments allowed by ViewClipTool.parseAndRun, or undefined if there is no maximum.
If subclasses override ViewClipTool.parseAndRun, they should also override this method to indicate the maximum
number of arguments their implementation expects.
minArgs Accessor StaticReadOnly number ViewClipTool The minimum number of arguments allowed by ViewClipTool.parseAndRun. If subclasses override ViewClipTool.parseAndRun, they should also
override this method to indicate the minimum number of arguments their implementation expects. UI controls can use
this information to ensure the tool has enough information to execute.
namespace Static string ViewClipTool The namespace that provides localized strings for this Tool.
receivedDownEvent boolean ViewClipTool Used to avoid sending tools up events for which they did not receive the down event.
targetIsLocked boolean ViewClipTool
