Receiving a flag from Fusion back when it is finished processing the changes on a model

For my application, we send in parameter changes through an external program that communicates with a Fusion add-in, but don't have any feedback for the user when fusion has completed these changes inside the program. I'm wondering if it's possible for Fusion to send back a boolean flag to an add-in when it's finished processing changes to a model that are sent from an add-in. 


Mainly for communicating with a user when the changes they input are complete in Fusion.

Hi @derek.bell10 .


It is possible that I am not understanding the meaning of the question.


I believe that in Fusion360, many changes are made using commands.
How about using a commandTerminated Event that is triggered by the completion of a command?

You shouldn't need any notification from Fusion to tell you when the processing is finished.  This is because when you use any of the functions to edit a parameter value, that function call doesn't return until the model has finished computing.  There's nothing to wait for because the work to update the model is done.
