Getting an object from a script controller.


got a small problem with scripted controllers and hoped you guys could help me .

Im simply trying to extract the objects used in a scriptcontroller. To test this i made some simple code that creates a box with a scriptcontroller that references a created cylinder's position controller.
Now if I want to get the cylinder-object by using getTarget my print returns the controller (Controller:Position_XYZ).
theBox = box name:"testbox"
theCyl = cylinder name:"testCylinder"

theBox.pos.controller[1].controller = (float_script())

ctrl = theBox.pos.controller[1].controller
ctrl.addTarget "testTarget" theCyl.pos.controller
getCyl = ctrl.getTarget 5 asObject:true
print getCyl

if anyone knows how to get the print to show the cylinder object, please let me know

Look up refs in the help and also have a look at a post that JHN just posted about additions to the struct. You will need to find out what is dependent on that controller.

Thanks! Works perfect and learned something new . Too bad im working on an old version of max though so i cannot check those additions atm, seems to be something to keep in mind.
