Default making views follow operators

This model uses an OnModelOpen trigger to manually create and build an OnPreDraw trigger for the main ortho view. The OnPreDraw trigger makes the ortho view follow the operator. This technique could be useful for presenting the activity of a particular operator, or any other TaskExecuter.

Here's the OnModelOpen trigger:
//make an empty node at the end of the attribute list
treenode ortho=node("VIEW:/active/ortho");
//set a pointer to the NEW last attribute
//(the one we just made)
treenode onpredraw=rankobj(ortho,contentobj(ortho));
setnodestr(onpredraw,"treenode focus=node(\"/Operator4\",model());\nsetcameradirection(c,xloc(focus),yloc(focus),zloc(focus),-30,0,-43);");
//remember to use \" to put a quote character inside a string
// \n is the new line character
It makes and builds this Flexscript OnPreDraw trigger:
treenode focus=node("/Operator4",model());
