View Full Version : getAttr issue

04 April 2006, 03:05 PM

I'm having a problem in a for-loop, while using getAttr command.
The problem is that it's not possible to use getAttr in this way,

$ftn = `getAttr $obj.ftn`;

unless $obj is an array. Why is that?

If trying to, it results in the following error message:
Error: Cannot convert data of type string[] to type string.

There are possible workarounds, but I'm curious of the reason for the error.
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

$ftn = `getAttr ($obj+".ftn")`;
