Hello fellow geeks,
I'm new to Houdini, so my question might sound stupid but, I'm trying to get component(point, prim…) selections from viewports.
As I understand every viewport can have different selections, so the selections should be fetched by viewport.
Got this few lines working:
scene_viewer = toolutils.sceneViewer()
selected_geo = scene_viewer.selectGeometry()
selection_str = selection.selectionStrings()


but the issue is that the viewport is always the main one, it doesn't fetch from others even if I use radial menus which execute these lines.

I even tryied:

toolutils.activePane("sceneViewer")

Anyone know how to call the current active sceneViewer?
Thanks in advance.

Didn't work mate, it get's always the main scene viewer, no matter from which scene viewer the radial menu item is called.
I quickly made a video capture of my screen to make it more clear what I want to do.
As you can see it always fetches what is in the main sceneViwer, I'm I missing something in here ?

This question has bothered me for quite a while. Unfortunately this is the first google search result and it's never answered.

I believe the correct solution is:

viewer = desktop.paneTabUnderCursor()
