DataParameter Properties

  • Parameter Type: Defines the controlled plug-in type. The options are GEOMETRY, FUNCTION or SCENE. If Function or Scene is selected, the Function Name parameter is enabled.

  • Function Name: Sets the name of the function (or scene) plug-in that the DataParameter plug-in controls.

  • Parameter Name: Defines the parameter that is controlled. The parameter name must be identical to the name used by Viz (case sensitive). To find the exact parameter name use the show command option and change the parameter from the user interface. The name of the parameter is printed by Viz in the commands console.


Suppose a group has three children, each child is a cube. If we want to change the height parameter of each cube according to a certain value received from the field VALUES[3]. Field Name = VALUES[3], Parameter Type = GEOMETRY (cube is a geometry plug-in), Function Name = Cube and Parameter Name=size_Y (name of the parameter in the cube plug-in that changes the height of the cube) If the data is VALUES[0-2]=1, 2, 3; the cube's heights becomes 1, 2 and 3 respectively.
