What I am looking for is to use a scripted tool to select an area on the map to save the coordinate values (start and end) and use those values in a script scenario.

Why not catch the calls to is_work_allowed_here? The tool id is a special number indicating that a scripted tool is behind.

Certainly this can work, using the "tool_id", but how but how would you go about getting the start and end coordinates in a two-click tool?.  ???

Dwachs

Each click should be send to the scenario. But it seems impossible to distinguish first and second.

For your request, I could think of implementing a very low-level communication between scripts: just sending strings and numbers between them.

Certainly, it was precisely this that gave me headaches in the past, when I was trying to mark the beginning and the end of a road at the time of its construction.  :o

This sounds interesting.  8)
