Marionette Node to insert symbols in rows


Recommended Posts

This is a great example of a simple "Bread and Butter" script as I like to call them, a script that automates a simple day to day task and saves the user a few minutes. Most people think of flashy, curvy geometry when you mention graphical scripting. I think the fact that Marionette is integrated into VW and allows these day to day tasks to be automated is really useful. Thanks for sharing.

#python code. Copy this in your existing node. It just lists ALL Symbols without caring about symbol folders. Like always whithout warranty.

@Marionette.NodeDefinition
class Params(metaclass = Marionette.OrderedClass):
this = Marionette.Node( "InsertAllSymDefinitions" )
this.SetDescription( 'Shows all Symbol definition' )
offset = Marionette.PortIn( (1), "offset" )
offset.SetDescription( "offset of columns and rows" )
columns = Marionette.PortIn( 4 ) 
columns.SetDescription( "Number of columns" )
angle = Marionette.PortIn( (0) )
angle.SetDescription( "angle" )
symbols = Marionette.PortOut()
symbols.SetDescription( "the created symbol preview" )
this.SetLinksObjects()

def RunNode(self):

versatz = self.Params.offset.value
spalten = self.Params.columns.value
angle = self.Params.angle.value

x=0;y=0;zeile=0;c=1

symnames=[]
res_list,num_items=vs.BuildResourceList( 16, 0, '')

for i in range(num_items):
	res=vs.GetResourceFromList(res_list, i)
	if res !=vs.Handle(0):
		t=vs.GetType(res)
		if t ==16:
			symnames.append(vs.GetName(res))

#vs.AlrtDialog(str(symnames))

for n in symnames:
	vs.Symbol(n,x,y,angle)
	vs.Locus(x,y)
	x=x+versatz
	zeile=int(c/spalten)
	y=zeile*versatz	
	if c % spalten ==0:
		x=0
	c=c+1

self.Params.symbols.value = vs.LNewObj()
