Automated SceneData property binding

Post by arthamas » 29 Mar 2018, 16:02

Hi,

My problem is quite simple.

Situation
I have 6 string array which have 100 input each. So If I calculate using my mad math skills, this would mean I have 600 string inputs in total.

Problem
How do I connect all those 600 inputs without using the click and drag method to the scene data window?

Can I connect those inputs using C# script?

Cheers!

what's your source? You can generate arrays with scripts.

Hi lerou,

I'm controlling the scene using Director.
So when I generate those arrays with script, can I hook the resulting Array's inputs to the Scene Data?

use an intermediate format. For instance json. Create a json with your data (json supports arrays) and send it over (one string). Take it apart in your scene.

Yes that would work but the whole point of using Director is to have a user friendly interface that will be used by the client to input their data.
Is there a way to bind a script property to the scene data using the Kernel for example?

Sounds like you should write a Director Plugin. It lets you build a custom WPF control and you can programmatically set the scene data.
