algorithmic modeling for Rhino
When I try to convert string to GH_String and then append to a tree, the tree returns <empty>, when it's supposed to return "something". I think I made a mistake when converting:
GH_String name = new GH_String();
string strName = "something";
bool convertStr = GH_Convert.ToGHString(strName, GH_Conversion.Both, ref name);
What is my (probably obvious) mistake?
Just make a new string...
GH_String name = new GH_String("something");
I mean, that didn't answer your specific question, and I can't see right away what would be wrong with the code, but GH_Convert is only useful if you don't know at the time of writing what sort of data you're going to have to deal with. If you already have a string, no need to rely on complicated conversion logic.
Many thanks Dave, that makes sense.
By the way, I realized that the problem I had was not related to the type conversion.
