Data Tags

Recommended Posts

There isn't much script functionality on the DevWiki regarding Data Tags.


I was wondering if anyone knew how to get a handle to an object a data tag is attached to.


Say I can collect all the data tags in a viewport, as handles, does anyone know how to get handles to objects those data tags are attached to?

Hello Tui,


I will send you a simple script how this can be done.

h = Data Tag Object Handle

import vs; 
def GetTaggedObject(h):
    result = False;
    num = vs.GetNumAssociations(h);
    assH = None
    assKind = None
    value = None
    i = 0;
    while(i < num and result == False):
        assH, assKind, value = vs.GetAssociation(h, i);
        if (assKind == 37):
            result = True;
        i = i + 1;
    return result, assH;
