algorithmic modeling for Rhino
working in a node trough visual studio,
I would like to update some of the strings in the pManager parameter. in the output method.
pManager.AddNumberParameter("Angle", this.ang, "Angle Between points, GH_ParamAccess.item);
so the output "nick name" will be updated according to the new angle.
Thanks in advance
In the SDK > Examples > Simple Component > Parameter Registration:
Components have unique input and output parameters which are most often fixed. We are ignoring those rare cases where a component either has no inputs or no outputs, or where there is a variable number of parameters. There are two subroutines that allow you to define (or "register") these parameters. These routines are called from within the base class constructor and they are only called once.(...)
So I do not think this can be done. Perhaps with a custom parameter, but I doubt it.
thanks for clarify,
You can change the nickname of an object whenever you want as it is not a solution related property (only exception here is script and expression components).
If you want to set the nickname of an output during SolveInstance, then just use:
this.Params.Output.NickName = "NewName";
If you do it outside of SolveInstance, then you may have to call the ExpireLayout method on the component attributes before the change becomes visible on screen.
thanks a lot
