i do a degree in 3d animation at university and have a project to create a mel script that allows users to configure options for a product.
This may sound unclear but i have chosen to do a cocktail maker. they select alcohol/mixers/glass etc to make the drink.
This may sound like a pointless use of mel (the project that is) but none the less i have to do it.
my problem occours when i try to edit the -ann flag of a frameLayout using the -cc flag.
i'm not sure how to get it to edit the mouse over text from "click to collapse" to "click to expand" when the frame is collapsed.
here is my code (its may be rubbish, inefficient etc but i'm learning so bear patient)
string $drinkS = `frameLayout -l "Drinks" //drinks main menu
-ann "click to collapse"
-cc -e (-ann "click to expand")`;
i'm not sure of the structure for both the -cc command and the -edit command.
this is probably a very basic mistake.
