    easy method to get value and string numbers? question and possibly a feature request.

    I'm using the expression editor to access a series of values but since each object can have up to 200values and 150 strings it gets tedious if I have to count down the values in the properties window to check if I need to access value 98 or 99. Is there an easy way to check what value number a particular value or string is? And if not, can we add a simple numeric column beside the value and string lists?

    how about the array object?
    create one for text and the other for values and use fast loops to value them.

    You can already select a value/string by its index, can you give a clearer example of what you need to achieve?

    He knows you can select it by index, but he's saying it's a total pain in the butt to have to manually count down the properties window to figure out what the index of any particular altVal actually is. Especially since the altVals are counted using base-0, so it's not quite as easy as thinking 'J is the 10th letter of the alphabet, so Alterable Value J is #10, and Alterable Value AJ is 26+10=#36. And of course if all of the object's altVals are already named, then you don't even have alphabet letters to help guide you.

    I agree that it would be good if there was a column on the left hand side of the altVals that showed you their index number. This was requested a couple of times recently. Fingers crossed...


    @JohnArtbox : you can do something like this to help you figure it out. Not as good as having a column of numbers already in the properties windows, but better than counting manually.

    Just temporarily set the altVal you want to identify to an obscure number (in this case 1234.56), then this fast loop will go through all the altVals and tell you which # is 1234.56. If you run the MFA, you'll see that Alterable Value CJ is #87

    That's it exactly Volnaiskra. Clickpuppet has quite a few instances where it uses over a hundred strings and values. Thanks for the mfa, it's a good interim solution.

    Another solution I'm trying is to include the index number as a prefix to the AltVal name, V"index"_name and S"index"_name. It makes it much easier to track errors.
