Properties

.editStateMode : boolean : Read|Write

.useCurve : boolean : Read|Write

Specifies whether or not to use the curve.

.createMode : boolean : Read|Write

Enable/Disable the Create mode.

Methods

<boolean>reactTo <maxObject>object

The default influence value depends on the time the reaction was created. This is a time variant function so it will use the MAXScript time context instead of requiring a Time value as an argument.

<maxObject>object: The object to react to. This can either be a controller or a node.

Returns true if successful and false otherwise.

<boolean>create name:<string>

Create a new reaction and give it a name. The default influence value depends on the time the reaction was created. This is a time variant function. It will also use the name supplied if there is one, but a name is not necessary. The default value of name is: "scriptCreated". Returns true if successful and false otherwise.

Note:

All index parameters below are 1-based!

<boolean>delete <index>index

Delete the indexed reaction. Returns true if successful and false otherwise.

<integer>getCount()

Returns the reaction count.

<void>select <index>index

Selects the indexed reaction.

<index>getSelected()

Returns the index of the currently selected reaction.

<boolean>setStateToCurrent <index>index

This is a Time Variant function. Sets the reaction state to the current state at the given MAXScript time. Returns true if successful and false otherwise.

<boolean>setFloatState <index>index <float>state

Set the reaction state to the value passed in. The function you use depends on the type of reactor controller it is. Returns true if successful and false otherwise.

<boolean>setVectorState <index>index <point3>state

Set the reaction state to the value passed in. The function you use depends on the type of reactor controller it is. Returns true if successful and false otherwise.

<boolean>setRotationState <index>index <quat>state

Set the reaction state to the value passed in. The function you use depends on the type of reactor controller it is. Returns true if successful and false otherwise.

<boolean>setValueToCurrent <index>index

This is a Time Variant function. Sets the reaction value to value of the ReactTo object at the given MAXScript time. Returns true if successful and false otherwise.

<boolean>setValueAsFloat <index>index <float>value

Set the reaction value to the value passed in. The function you use depends on the type of object or controller you are reacting to. See getType() below. Returns true if successful and false otherwise.

<boolean>setValueAsVector <index>index <point3>value

Set the reaction value to the value passed in. The function you use depends on the type of object or controller you are reacting to. See getType() below. Returns true if successful and false otherwise.

<boolean>setValueAsQuat <index>index <quat>value

Set the reaction value to the value passed in. The function you use depends on the type of object or controller you are reacting to. See getType() below. Returns true if successful and false otherwise.

<boolean>setInfluence <index>index <float>influence

Sets the influence for the specified reaction. Returns true if successful and false otherwise.

<boolean>setStrength <index>index <float>strength

Sets the strength for the specified reaction. Returns true if successful and false otherwise.

<boolean>setFalloff <index>index <float>influence

Sets the falloff for the specified reaction.

<void>setName <index>index <string>name

Set the name of the reaction specified by the index.

<string>getName <index>index

Returns the reaction name.

<float>getInfluence <index>index

Returns the reaction influence.

<float>getStrength <index>index

Returns the reaction strength.

<float>getFalloff <index>index

Returns the reaction falloff.

<enum>getType()

getType enums: { #floatReaction | #positionalReaction | #rotationalReaction | #scaleReaction }

Returns the type of object you are reacting to.

<fpvalue>getState <index>index

Returns the reaction state. This value can be either a Point3, a Quat, or a float depending on the type of reactor controller this is.

<fpvalue>getValue <index>index

Returns the reaction value. This value can be either a Point3, a Quat, or a float depending on the type of reactor controller this is.
