[quote]So you could never have an action that said something like:
Cat(2).my_instance_variable = Cat(1).my_instance_variable.[/quote]
Well, yes you can, what I typed was quite literal, "Sprite(1).X" is an allowed expression:http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5426011/examples%208/inst_ex.capx
A bit more info:
will always give the X position of the second instance of sprite, (not the second picked).
When families get implimented it would look like this:
Make object "Sprite" part of a family called say "Blue".
Then with events Blue is just another selection of Sprite, so you can pick two separate instances of Sprite.
+ Start of Layout:
+ Sprite: Pick Instance with UID: 22
+ Blue: Pick Instance with UID: 34
---> Sprite: Pin Pin to Blue
