Relative path to parent context?

Unread postby bvz2000 » Tue Mar 19, 2019 2:30 am

I am trying to set up a relative path to a parent context.

For example:

get_double("../light_settings.intensity")

But apparently that does not work. Is there any way to use relative paths to go "up" by one or more contexts?

Hi,

This hasn't been implemented yet, but you can achieve the same thing using the `get_context` function. Here is how to do it:

Code: Select all
get_double(get_context(get_context()) + "/light_settings.intensity")


The inner`get_context` call (no parameter) returns the path to the context of the object owning the attribute the expression is bound on. The outer `get_context` call then returns the parent context.

Will probably add support for relative paths in the future, but for the moment, this is the way to go :)

This looks like it will work just fine for us. Thanks!
