View Full Version : Loading a single selection
12-17-2003, 05:17 PM
I feel like a fool for having to ask this but...
whats the most efficient way to get maya to make sure only one object is selected by a user?
Do i still use the:
string $sel = `ls -sl`;

Is this for when the user has selected the objects and called your script?
In that case you can do
string $selection = 'sl -ls';
and use $selection to access the first selected object only.... Or copy that into another array if you need to work on array

I was hoping for a way to limit the selection to 1. If more than one object was selected I wanted to output an error like "Dummy, only select ONE object!"

string $selection =`ls -sl -fl`;
if (size($selection)!= 1)
error ("Dummy, only select ONE object!");
if (size($selection)!= 1) This part says: If the amount of elements in $selection is not equal to 1, then print the error.
You should use the ERROR command for this, cause it makes sure the script cannot continue.
