LUA Script - Please help me
« on: August 03, 2014, 05:52:01 AM »
Hello there,

i have a little problem. I tried to create a script.
What want I do, well very easy. I like to create 2 buttons in the FRO-Section.
The first button should increase the current FRO value by pushing +10.
The second button should decrease the current FTO value by pushing -10.

I tried out a lot, but currently I am not able to make it work.
Is anyone here who could help me?
Best regards,
Gerhard

i tried out this:

local inst = mc.mcGetInstance();
local TempFRO = 0;
mc.mcCntlGetFRO(TempFRO, 0);
TempFRO = TempFRO - 10;
mc.mcCntlSetFRO(inst, TempFRO);


but it does not work.

Now it works:

Decreasing FRO by Button:


local inst = mc.mcGetInstance();
local TempFRO;
TempFRO = mc.mcCntlGetFRO(inst);
TempFRO = TempFRO - 10;
mc.mcCntlSetFRO(inst, TempFRO);

I don't know Lua, but I think it should be something like this:

local inst = mc.mcGetInstance();
local TempFRO = 0;
mc.mcCntlGetFRO(inst);
TempFRO = TempFRO - 10;
mc.mcCntlSetFRO(inst, TempFRO);

I did this by manipulating the slider.

I did a GetProperty() on the slider, did the math to add/subtract 5%, and then did a SetProperty() to update it.

I will post the code when I get to my computer.
