View Full Version : Scripted modifier with callbacks problem

12-14-2010, 12:08 PM
Why is this throwing an error?

-- Error occurred in anonymous codeblock; filename: C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max Design 2011\plugins\ProxySwitcher.ms; position: 142; line: 8
-- Syntax error: at name, expected Plugin clause:
-- In line: callbacks.

plugin modifier proxySwitcher
name:"Proxy Switcher"
classID:#(609124, 085099)
callbacks.removeScripts id:#proxySwitcher

local switch = true
local cull = false

parameters main rollout:params
switchOnRender type:#boolean animatable:false
ui:switchOnRender default:true

rollout params "Proxy Switcher"
checkbox switchOnRender "Switch On Render"

fn onPreRender =


callbacks.addScript #preRenderFrame "onPreRender()" id:#proxySwitcher

I intend to slap this on a Container to switch out proxies, which Autodesk apparently thought we wouldnt want to do!

You cannot define the callbacks just in the plugin body, you need to have it assigned in a handler for example on create for example. The callbacks are not in the right place.
