This weekend I changed the name of my soundboard control and then searched through the project to find and update all the references. It occured to me that it might be fun to build something that showed the relationship of items. I could do this with a spreadsheet but is it possible to use whats built into EZ-Builder?
Show all the places that reference a sound control or a specific sound.
Show every reference to RGB Animation control or specific action.
Show every action that uses a specific frame.
Could this be as simple as a "find" function?
Does this exist somewhere that I haven't found?
Is there a plugin that does this?
Would it be possible to do this in a plugin?
Woukld the SDK be an option?
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Experience early access to the latest features and updates. You'll have everything that is needed to unleash your robot's potential.
I would copy the file to a new file for processing. A plugin could be cool that lists off the information, but it could just as easily be a separate app that isn't embedded into ARC.
We spent a great deal of effort creating the learn section, and documenting every ARC feature. Its easy to access by pressing "learn" from the top menu on this website. Have fun!
This control works in the opposite direction. Take a script and see what all it calls. I think he was looking for the other way also. Take an action and then see where all it is used.
Just thinking about what could make the control more useable.
I looked at the flow control but ruled it out for 2 reasons. 1. On my Surface laptop it's very hard to read because of font issues. (I realize that's a Windows issue), 2. I was looking for something text based and interactive.
Example 1: I'm splitting the Soundboard control into 2 controls, Music and Sound Effects. The Camera Click went to SoundEffects so I have to update all the references to Soundboard/track 3 to Sound Effect/track 0. It would be helpful to go somewhere to see all the places Soundboard/track 3 is referenced and follow it from the bottum up.
Example 2: I might want to delete an action from AutoPosition and delete the associated frames. Before I do that I would want to see if that frame is used anywhere else.
If you think of the Mobile App for JD there are over a dozen buttons that can have scripts with control commands for auto position, RGB animation, or sound. I don't see these in flow control.
