View Full Version : [HELP] Slider Bar Linking To xRay function

09 September 2005, 02:54 PM
How could i link a slider bar, to control the xray function of a selected object?

The higher the slider the more the transparent it becomes?

left to right opaque to transparent.

The visiblity of a object is by default a boolean (true or false).
If you assign a bezier_float controller to this property you can have a slider controlling this value:

You will find this under:
General Node Properties

for example:
$.visibility = bezier_float()
$.visibility.controller.value = 0.5

asign each of your planes the controller and change the controller value in the spinner/slider on changed event.

hope this helps

so if you assign a bezeir_float() , then u can adjust it from anything from 0 -> 1 right?

This in turn will make it see- through?

yes, I hope so.

this is a really bad hack:

rollout floating "seeThru"(
spinner seeit "" range:[0,1,1] type:#float
on seeit changed val do (
if $.visibility==true or $.visibility==false then $.visibility=bezier_float()
createDialog floating 100 50

but it demonstrates the use.

What about using manipulators and parameter wiring? if you can't do the visibility track you caould do the material!
