View Full Version : Easy quote escaping (\") for MEL scripts!

01 January 2008, 03:23 AM
Ever bang your head against a wall while trying to escape every quote in a super long Mel script? I don't know if I'm the only one who's had this problem, I suspect not, so I found an easy way to encode the whole string without using the "encodeString" MEL command which seems to baffle many.

Just take your MEL code and cut and paste it into a new expression and hit the 'edit' button. Look in the script editor and grab your nicely encoded string- it'll be everything after the '-s' and before the '-o'

Hope this helps.
