I'm trying to do things that only work in object mode. This gives me three choices:
I can hope I'm in object mode, and my script will raise an error if I'm not.
I can hope I'm in pose mode (or some other specific mode) and use
bpy.ops.object.posemode_toggle()to switch out of it.
I can hope I'm not in object mode, run
bpy.ops.object.mode_set(mode='OBJECT')to switch into it, and my program will raise an error if I'm already in it.
If I go with that last option I'm getting the error message
Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\Users\daniel\Desktop\BlenderMusic\keyboard.blend\fingers", line 5, in <module> File "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\BlenderFoundation.Blender_22.214.171.124_x64__ppwjx1n5r4v9t\Blender 2.82\2.82\scripts\modules\bpy\ops.py", line 201, in __call__ ret = op_call(self.idname_py(), None, kw) RuntimeError: Operator bpy.ops.object.mode_set.poll() failed, context is incorrect
There's nothing I can do to just let my script run no matter what mode it's in without crashing. Am I missing something?
Also, why is
posemode_toggle() even a thing? How can you be in a situation where you don't know whether or not you're in pose mode, but if you're in it you need to not be in it and if you're not in it you need to be in it?
