I have been investigating for a while but I can´t find how to run a node command from a external UI in a viewExtension. For instance, in the ¨Select Faces¨ node, how could I call the Select button on a specific node and set the value from an external window. My aim is to run Dynamo UI-Less and set those values back to Dynamo.
Any tip would be much appreciated,
Thanks @Nick_Boyts for your message!
That is not exactly my aim, I am looking to call the buttons of workspace nodes from the API in C#.
I found the Select command that could replicate the funcionality but it is not actually like pressing the button of the node.
Any tip @Michael_Kirschner2 would be much appreciated.
I found a way to access the method class of the nodes via;
public static void RequestRun(string filepath)
NodesInfo.isValidJson(filepath, out validjson, out ex);
NodesInfo.DynamoPreferencesData nuevo = NodesInfo.DynamoPreferencesData.Default();
NodesInfo.OpenJsonFile(filepath, validjson, nuevo, true, out WorkspaceModel workspacint);
string lista2 = "";
List<string> listaconvalores = new List<String>();
List<MethodInfo> Runtimemethod = new List<MethodInfo>();
List<NodeModel> Nodos = new List<NodeModel>();
foreach (Dynamo.Graph.Nodes.NodeModel node in workspacint.Nodes)
var nodetypes = node.GetType();
var method2 = nodetypes.GetRuntimeMethods();
Runtimemethod = method2.ToList();
I have got access to the method class inside the nodes;
Nonetheless, when I try to invoke the SelectionHelper to simulate clicking on the node button, the invoke method brings an error;
System.Reflection.TargetParameterCountException: ‘Parameter count mismatch.’
SelectionHelper method has no defined parameter to my understanding. What am I missing? Would you have work around on how to call nodes methods to simulate the clicking on the button?
