[QUOTE=Ashley]Each plugin has different properties, so you'll need some way to identify the plugin type, or detect the presence of expected properties.[/QUOTE]
@Ashley or @rexrainbow, is there some easy way to do this?
I have been reading the SDK manual, but I'm not clear from where the set of properties and/or their types can be retrieved. I tried using instance.properties[index], but this gives the value of the property, and there appears to be no way to determine the type using properties.
Basically, what I need to be able to do is take an object reference and a string representation of one of the properties of that object, then use those to reference an external object (which I can do now). By external object, I mean a plugin other than my plugin.
I then need to determine if the property reference is a native property of the object, an instance variable, or a property of a behavior. I think I am close to figuring this out, but I may need a gentle push in the right direction.
I also need to determine the property type, which I can't seem to figure out at all.
Any help would be appreciated.
BTW, I decided not to use the plugin/behavior combo after all. It didn't seem to help with the direction I was trying to take.Wastrel2012-06-29 19:26:48
