Customizing the tool: pre-showing the result for regular polygons

Students often construct a polygon into a wrong part of the plane. Pre-showing the outcome will be helpful.

How can ggb pre-show the outcome of something that hasn't been built yet?

🤔 Anyway, every polygon can be dragged after selecting the Move tool.

First you enter the number of vertices n, then you put the first vertex, then GGB pre-shows you the regular n-gon depending on the second vertex. When you put the second vertex the polygon is ready. It's just like the tool 'Perpendicular line' – if you choose the line first, then GGB pre-shows the perpendicular line depending on the point.
