Hi
i use an inexclude field as an input in one of my functions.
Now i got some questions:
- Is there a way to allow only one linked object in the inexclude field? (so that there is no chance for the user to drop in more than one object.)
- Does somebody know a method to check if and where an object is already dropped in? e.g there is Object 1 and Object 2. Object 2 has been put in the InExcludeField of Object 1. Is there a method to let Object 2 "know" that it is linked in the InExclude of Object 1?
Thx for your help

1. Why don´t you use a linkfield if you only want 1 object to be dropped???
2. In object2, get the basecontainer of object1, get the inexclude field and check if it is in there.

pretty straight forward huh?! 😉

K thx Katachi for your first hint. I think the linkfield is better for my needs.
The method to check if object 1 is linked to a specified object is quiet simple. But i have to check if it's linked anywhere in the whole structure. So maybe i can check this with a loop and check it in every single twig of the tree but if anyone should be able to work with the plugin, i think this is not the best method, cause even a small project will have more than a thousand of these tags and each of these has to check where it is linked to. So i wanted to know if there is a standart routine i can use...

Thx

There is no such function in the SDK. Also afaik you can't restrict the in/exclude lists to a number of objects. If you use only few object then probably the link fields are the way to go.

cheers,
Matthias

Thx Matthias, i substituted the linkfield for the inexclude field.
If there is no such function in the sdk i have to write it myself...
