ovThumbnailView and ovThumbnalRender object variable values

Recommended Posts



Does anybody know which are the values for object variables:

const short ovThumbnailView    = 1152;    // short    write only - The Resource Browser's thumbnail view for a symbol - Public for VS
const short ovThumbnailRender  = 1153;    // short    write only - The Resource Browser's thumbnail render for a symbol - Public for VS


I did try to set them up with a bunch of values (0, 1, 2, etc.) but it does not seem to work with this code:


vs.BeginSym("{} Picture Symbol".format(pictureName))
picture = vs.CreateCustomObject("Picture", 0, 0, 0)
vs.SetName(picture, pictureName)
symbol = vs.GetObject("{} Picture Symbol".format(pictureName))

vs.SetObjectVariableInt(symbol, 1152, 3) #Thumbnail View - Front
vs.SetObjectVariableInt(symbol, 1153, 2) #Thumbnail Render - OpenGL


Somehow I don't seem to be able to find this information.

Any ideas?
