Marionette Question Regarding Popup Items - How to set height on item (x) based on choice (y)

Recommended Posts

First, thank you all for many years of content on this board. I am recently new to working with Marionette, and the last programming I did was on an Apple 2GS, so stick with me on this one 😉


I am building a simple marionette tool as a base function for creating truss uprights. I have everything correct to create a single, vertical truss with fixtures at an accurate height, but I am falling short in building the network to achieve the lighting fixture height based on length of the truss chosen in the popup dialogue. I'm missing a step, and was hoping to see if anyone could set me down the right path for choosing the height of certain objects based on a choice from a specific popup. IE a 10' stick of truss puts lights at 10'4", 8' stick at 8'4"...etc.

I think I answered that question - I have succeeded after finding "Same String" and using the boolean applied to an "If" statement. That worked, and it seemed simple once I posted here.


I then discovered that my lighting symbols are losing their Lighting Info upon completion of the Marionette. Is there any way to restore the fixtures to their original fixture symbol definition?

Can you provide a small file with your network, the results of that network, and an example of what you want it to be when it's done? I just want to make sure I understand the situation correctly.

If you don't want to share publicly, you could send it in a direct message.
