View Full Version : Digging Sub-properties?

01 January 2005, 11:40 AM
is ther a way to scan through an objects' properties and sub-properties?

sumthing like this:

for i in 1 to $.SUBPROP.count do
if $[i] == "SubpropertyName" then
--code goes here

maybe if i hav an object with multiple list controllers.. is there a way to get a certain controllers' name by scanning/digging through it? sorta like looking at an objects' track view, with everything shown and expanded, one-by-one.
or a certain materials' submaterials name or maptype...

show $ only shows the first level of an objects property...i hope theres a command to show all the sub-levels (not sure how its called).:)

hmm... looking through subanims now... i hope im in the right track...

Yup, by the sounds of things subAnims are your best bet. They are tricky to navigate at times but once you get a good recursive loop going getting all of an objects preperties will be made available to you.
