Set Property action can't reach Line Renderer's specific parameters. Is it a bug or am I missing something?

Hi,
 I want to reach properties like Positions, Start/End Width and Colors. Are you seeing them?

Hi,
 
 I see, it's simply because they are not properties, you only define them by calling methods ( SetPosition(), SetWidth,SetColors())

So, yeah, these would need special actions, it's outside the scope of get/set property.

bye,

Thank you for explaining that I didn't know.
 It just seemed natural to be able to access them that way. Playmaker probably should take advantage of that when drag-and-dropping by maybe suggesting not only Get/Set Property but also yet another proper action.

hi,

 that's one problem indeed, that's where custom actions comes in. Also This is something that the Unity Api should expose as properties, but it's always a difficult situation, because when scripting, that never is a problem, it's only when you want to add an abstraction layers that some API becomes difficult/impossible to port properly in a visual environment. Vectrosity is a typical example cause it follows the same API patterns, using very powerful method signatures, which makes it impossible to expose properly visually ( almost impossible)

bye,
