You cannot wire an vector [1,1,1] like the gizmo scale to a float.
You will have to extract an part [x,y,z] and wire this to the spinner.
I am not sure if wire parameter is really the best solution for this.

But it is better to start another thread for this question as this thread is about:
.NET and it's Implications for Maxscript [Max 9]

Don't know what the actual code looks like, so don't know if RDG is right, but it looks to me it's getting integers... instead of floats... so [1.0,1.0,1.0] should work...
Or convert you outcome of the spinners to floats.. "spn.value as float"

But I'm just guessing...

Ok forget about that... rdg is right offcourse... I read the error wrong... your feeding a float with a vector... you need to deconstruct the vector... vector.x, vector.y etc...

Sorry for jumping into the discussion. I have two quick questions... I once saw a presentation of TDs at Disney who created custom interfaces for their characters and controls with Maya and Qt under Linux. The same should be easily possible with a custom programmed .NET ui control and MAXScript without having to dive deep into the SDK now. Is this possible or can anyone confirm this ?

And is it possible to send messages from .NET components to MAX itself ? For example selecting and manipulating objects ? I am particularly interested in the communication between MAXScript and .NET. Sorry for my newbish questions but I dont have access to MAX 9 so I can not really try anything yet.

No idea for the second question, but am pretty sure that's possible. As for Question one i can indeed confirm that. I have played with non-standard controls already (stimulsoft.com in my case for testing) and it works like a charm.

Just wanted to thank ypuech on the excellent XML sample !
I totally missed out on the .NET connectivity, but this sample got me interested and up in running in minutes and OMG it rocks

On a more serious note, relief7; I don't think you can use .NET to call max directly, they'd have to convert the SDK to .Net first. There's a discussion about that in the first few pages of this thread ;-)
