Function not reading array

Hi all,

I am trying to create a function where it takes an array of objects, makes a snapshot of them and then attaches them all together.

The snapshot part seems to work fine, however I'm getting stuck with passing the snapshot objects to be attached.

I have tried defining a local array but cannot seem to append to the SnapShotArray I create to pass on to the attaching code.

How do you pass variables/arrays out of an event handler? I have tried defining the array globally as well.

Any help appreciated.

fn clusterAttach &objArr = ( for BodyCount = 1 to objArr.count do ( SnapShotArray = #() theObj = objArr[BodyCount] theTMesh = snapshotAsMesh theObj EmptyMesh = Editable_mesh() EmptyMesh.mesh = theTMesh convertTo EmptyMesh Editable_Poly move EmptyMesh[115,0,0] append SnapShotArray $EmptyMesh print SnapShotArray ) -- Attach -- j = 1 count = SnapShotArray.count undo off ( while SnapShotArray.count > 1 do ( if classof SnapShotArray[j] != Editable_Poly then converttopoly objArr[j] polyop.attach SnapShotArray[j] SnapShotArray[j+1] deleteItem SnapShotArray (j+1) j += 1 if (j + 1) > SnapShotArray.count then j = 1 ) ) return SnapShotArray[1] )

Shouldn't it be return SnapShotArray, not return SnapShotArray[1]?
