Xpresso Camera choice

Say I have a scene with 4 cameras. I want to make an xpresso set up where I can, using radio buttons in a user data interface, select the different cameras. I have got as far as setting up a compare node to access the radio button data. I thought I'd just add the output to the on switch of the camera but this doesn't seem to work. What am I missing do I need to convert my 1 value when the radio button is selected to an on state and then feed this to the camera

all the best

Did you try the stage object with a link-list node? Unfortunately you will miss the morphing.

first of all, while all this would also be technical possible in pure xpresso i would personally
recommend using a python node, as it would really make things alot easier.

your question is also a bit unclear to me. you are speaking of selecting a camera. where do
you want to select the camera ? in the object manager or in a timeline ? also from your
further descriptions it actually sounds more like you want to switch the active (render)camera,
rather than selecting a camera.
