    Hi
    I was hoping to find a way of gathering up all my userdata from a null to put into an array, but I saw from the forum that coffee might not support this

    <<"I'd like to check if an object has user data(s) , how many , and their name . Do you think it's possible in coffee ?">>

    is there a work around for this? could I make a null with one userdata field, then copy and paste as many as I need and in my coffee script loop through all the nulls of the same name to find out how many userdata fields there are, or is there a much simpler way?

    Kind regards Conor

    Hi I've just been looking at kattkieru's post about "BaseContainer and user data". I have a null with two user data fields (one is 56 the other 24) and I've tried the code

    main(doc,op)
    {

    var op = doc->FindObject("userdata");

    var bc = op->GetContainer();

    var i = 0;

    while (bc->GetIndexId(i) != NOTOK)

    {

    println(bc->GetIndexData(i));

    i++;

    }

    }

    but I get

    0
    10.000000
    1.000000
    0
    [Object-0x17a1d32c]

    in the console window, have I completely misunderstood this code if I'm expecting it to print the contents of the user data?
    Kind regards Conor

    It's not possible to iterate through userdata in COFFEE.

    Userdata can only be accessed directly in COFFEE, like this: var data = op#ID_USERDATA:1

    The only workaround is described in this thread:

    some COFFEE questions

    For full userdata access you have to use the C++ API.

    cheers,
    Matthias
