Hi,

i have used the forum search on this, but it didn't come up with an answer. So i have to ask now 🙂

1. I have got a Xpresso node (a Xgroup) with some UserData on it.
2. I want to acess these user data from a python Xpresso node and therefor need the node itself.
3. I do not want the user to drag and drop something.
4. Xpresso nodes have no Object/Reference port, so you cannot grab the object from there.
5. I am aware of the fact, that i can drag the GvNode attributes from the AM into the GraphView and access the user data one by one.
6. I know how to use GvNodeMaster to get the master node and then iterate through the GeListNodes.

The node name is obviously not safe identification property, so i am either looking for a method 
which can return the GvNode through the backdoor (some UserData that can return their Op / the
GetOperatorID()), or another way to identify a node.

Thanks for your help in advance.

nevermind, got it. ran into the old object node trap 🙂

objectnodes hide their object node output port for some unknown reason, as soon as they
got a reference. so to solve this :

1. create object node
2. add object ouput port
3. drag Xpresso node settings from the am into it.
4. use the object link
