View Full Version : set Attribute by slider?

07 July 2007, 10:04 AM
Good day everybody,

I'm just busy figthing my way through my very first script and it's
almost finished. The one thing left is a slider I want to have in my
little window that changes a deformers envelope.
The code itself works (when I open my window, drag the slider,
highlight the code below and execute it):

float $strengthValue = `floatSliderGrp -q -value strengthSlider`;
setAttr "GridDeformer.envelope" $strengthValue ;

But I fail to use the /dragCommand/ of the /floatSliderGrp/ to execute
these two lines every time the slider becomes moved, here's the part
I'm stuck at:

/rowLayout -numberOfColumns 1 ;
floatSliderGrp -label "Strength" -field true -pre 2
-minValue 0 -maxValue 1
-dc "float $strengthValue = `floatSliderGrp -q -value strengthSlider`;
setAttr"GridDeformer.envelope" $strengthValue ;"
setParent ..;

As I earlier mentioned, I'm a newb and pretty afraid my mistake is
insanely obvious, but I'd be glad if someone could point me in the
right direction.

You want to use attrFieldSliderGrp instead.
