Input-fields for int-vars using parameters?

Hi there!

I have another special case :) I tried to use parameters to create a sort of "bulk" actionlist where I can set a lot of int-variables at once. But didn't find a way to get an input field other than using a "string" variable - which obviously doesn't work because strings and ints are different var types.

Is there a way to get input fields for int-vars using parameters?




  • That looks like a bug to me - you should be able to set parameters of all types using the ActionList: Run Action.
  • That's how it is at the moment (without an string parameter):
  • I see now - it's because you're setting the Global Var to effect dynamically as well.  The fields beneath it will normally depend on the chosen var's type - so setting to a specific String var will give you a text field.

    To get an integer box to appear with a parameterised Global Variable, you'd have to un-set the Variable parameter, select an Integer variable, and then reset the field to use the Global Variable parameter.

    My brain! Where was my brain again!! Thanks, now it works, of course :)
    Edit: The un-set and re-set thingy is a bit tricky, though. If you don't know that it has to be done that way, it's hard to discover.

  • True, but it's the only way to get AC to know what you're after.  It's also the way you'd use a parameterised character in e.g. Character: Animate - since you need to supply a character first to get the correct fields beneath it.
