Multiple point linking in one


  • This is my wish for this Christmas:

    -In one script
    -Get values from multiple data sources
    -Make some calculation with these values
    -Set the value of various data points with the results.

    A way can be get access to all variables in every script. Some thing like:

    variableXID.value=variable2XID.value

    Being variable and variable2 data points from differents data sources

    What do you think?

    Thank you.


  • Can't you do this with meta points?


  • I would like to elaborate on this wish:

    I would like to be able to use different points in a serverside script, for example. So instead of only being able to use "value" for the selected point, you could use "xid1.value".

    This can be done using meta points, but it is very inconvienient, as you must take all of your needed points, combine them into one, and then on your script extract each value while worrying about how many digits, etc.


  • Wouldn't the point links implementation necessarily require the same? Maybe i'm missing something...


  • I guess it's more of an issue on the serverside scripts, but I would like to be able to use more than one point on a single script. To do this right now I use a meta data source to combine a few points into one (seperated by commas), and then on my serverside script I have a function which searches the string for the position of commas, and then splits the string into seperate variables.

    This is just a little inconvenient, seems like there should be a better/easier way of doing it.
