indexing each step output from live.grid

August 31, 2010 | 10:12 am

Hi Folks,

I’m looking for a way to index each step from live.grid rather than the way it outputs them ie. a list. My first idea was $1 to $16 but that doesn’t work. Tried to use the zl object but don’t seem to be able to achieve what I want. I suppose what I’m looking for is a self indexing table that takes an argument for amount of numbers constitutes one index.

Cheers Folks

I’m working with live.grid at the moment but I don’t understand what it is you’re trying to achieve. Can you explain in more detail?

Maybe also give a sample of the output of live.grid and a corresponding sample of what you’d like it to be. And tell us what zl options you’ve tried already.

Hi Matt,

Basically I want turn the step list that live.gird outputs into individual entities. I saw your other post and my situation is somewhat similar as I’m trying to replace matrixctrl with live.grid. I’ve checked out your patches and don’t quite get what you’re doing in them. Do you end up with the same row,column,value output as you would from matrixctrl?

Cheers Matt but just figured out what I needed to.

Yeah my adapter converts the live.grid output into a series of (col,row,selected) messages. Because of the way live.grid outputs all selected cells on a change, instead of the change, I chose to output the entire matrix on each update rather than try and manage and maintain state in the adapter.

Anyway glad you got yourself sorted. Feel free to drop me a line if you want to ask any specific questions about what I did.

Kind regards.

Not totally sure what you’re trying to achieve here, but it sounds like that listfunnel might help, or not…
