Custom action request to use instead of Get/Set Property[SOLVED]
« on: February 09, 2019, 05:37:59 AM »
Hi!

I read on some threads that instead of using Get/Set Property it is better to create (or ask for if you can't create) custom actions and use those to access the properties directly, because of better performance / Reflection and the need to use Linker Wizard.

I used Get/Set Property in many different ways but now replaced all where I could find a custom action on the Ecosystem.
Great, thanks for these!

I also searched the forums but I am still missing a few actions preventing me from getting rid of all the Get/Set Properties.

It would be great to have the following actions:
- Test RigidBody2D Simulated,
- U Gui Canvas Group GET Alpha,
- Set Fixed Joint 2D properties,
- Set PolygonCollider2D points parameter.

Please see attached image for more info on how I used these.

Please add these to some list of actions todo and thanks in advance!

Hi, have you checked the ecosystem or google for any of these actions yet?

I searched in the Ecosystem and on the Playmaker forums, but did not find any action to achieve these 4 things.

Hi,

  I just created UiCanvasGroupGetAlpha on the ecosystem.

 I'll work on the other actions asap.

Bye,

UiCanvasGroupGetAlpha on the ecosystem.
This is so great! Very convenient, tried to make it but failed :D

Hi,

 ok, so we have now on the ecosystem

- GetRigidBody2dIsSimulated ( use bool test to send event after that)
- GetFixedJoint2DProperties
- SetFixedJoint2DProperties
- SetPolygonCollider2DSetPathCount
- SetPolygonCollider2DSetPath

you can't set points directly, you must define paths for PolygonCollider2D, first set the number of path you want ( if your poly has holes, it has more than one path to define the shape), then use the SetPolygonCollider2DSetPath action

Let me know how it goes.

 Bye,

 Jean

Thank you Jean!

Replaced my get/set properties with these and all of them work perfectly so far, also the UiCanvasGroupGetAlpha one.
