View Full Version : string array of option variables

Hi ,
I want to create some menuItem like "recent files", so I need a string array for like size 10 to save my file opened history. Does optionVar works for string array? I guess it just support int or string....

Does optionVar works for string array?

yes, via the -stringValueAppend flag

// create the option
optionVar -sv "hello" "moo";

// append a couple of strings to it
optionVar -sva "hello" "moo2";
optionVar -sva "hello" "moo3";

string $vars[];

// query as string array
$vars = `optionVar -q "hello"`;
print $vars;

// kill the optionVar
optionVar -remove "hello";
