The ModelPanel allows the drawing of various 3D models on a VGUI Panel.

It will play Activities/Sequences on the set model.

You can also set which skin to use on this model (Index value, zero based).

This VGUI class is found in basemodelpanel.cpp


The following is used in a resource script, and placed inside of a VGUI Panel.

I know nothing about working with Wiki pages, but i feel this information should be on here. If someone could pretty this page up, that would be awesome. I would keep the example for reference though.
