Picker Mel/Python code

Post by pandalope » Fri Jul 24, 2015 6:27 pm

I would like to make a button on my pickerset to swap the namespace to the currently selected character. I've written such code for the ABX picker where I simply figure out the namespace of whatever is selected, and in the active panel in the selection gui, I find the namespace it's set for and swap in the new one. Unfortunately, when I use the script editor to display all history, all I can get from it is the command to bring up the namespace selector:

AnimSchoolPicker "rebind" `picker_ListNamespaces`;

I'd love to be able to make a smarter button to simply run whatever is going on in that dialogue box instead of having to manually hunt and find the character I want.

If you can provide me with the snippet of code to control querying and changing the namespace for a tab, I'd happily share my code for a button that will swap the current tab to the namespace for the currently selected character.

For real? No admin can give me this snippet of code? It'll make the pickers so much more powerful to have a button to swap to the current char when you have multiple characters and a shared rig setup.

I don't think we have that ability. Checking.

AnimSchool Picker does not have that ability. We have added that to the development list though, thanks!

Apologies if this question has been asked & answered somewhere else, but I was wondering if Animschool offered and/or sold licenses to the Animschool picker source code? Thanks in advance!

The more common workflow for multiple characters is to open multiple tabs and (if they're the same character, for instance) attach a different namespace to each one. You use the different tab for the different characters. Does that make sense?
