More Action Attributes for Custom Actions
« on: March 29, 2011, 03:18:42 AM »
Give us more control over the ui in custom actions.  ;D

The 2 I would love the most:
- Adding a line to split options
- Min, Max Array check/requirment

The first one is easy, the second one how ever ...

I'm using 'KeyCode[]' as type this allows the user to set any array size, but there is no way for me to control this ui bit. Atm, I do a check when we enter the state but that's run time, it would be sweet if we could control this while setting up the state. (I know I can give them a start size in reset but still ...)

Great suggestions!

Version 1.1 has an ActionSection attribute that lets you organize parameters under a title (or empty string if you just want the divider). Some of the iTween actions have a lot of parameters, so it was useful to be able to divide them up by LookAt, or Path.

We'll get a MinMaxArraySize attribute into a future update.

In the meantime, you could use the ErrorCheck method in a custom action to limit your array size. This should get called whenever an action is edited...

Glad to see you already got one of them in 1.1 version, that solution sounds even better then a simple line.
I will have a look at the ErrorCheck method, thx for the tip, somehow that one slipped below my radar.
