[Sidefx-houdini-list] Some python questions...

Bonjour Guillaume

You may try that :

nullObj = hou.node('obj').createNode('null')
mysparefloat = hou.FloatParmTemplate("myfloat" , "Myfloat", 1)
nullObj.addSpareParmTuple(mysparefloat, in_folder=(["MYFOLDER"]), create_missing_folders=True)

To see what is going on look at the script that houdini generate itself to create the node with:

hcreate = nullObj.asCode(save_creation_commands=True)
print hcreate

hope this help

I can't find a way to create a spare parameter in python !

The only related methods seems to be  "addSpareParmTuple". But I don't
want to add a vector parameter, just a float (I can't find something
like "addSpareParm" ).
Trying the "addSpareParmTuple", I can't figure out how to define the
"parm_template" argument ?

I'm also trying to find a parameter in a specific folder and it always
fail. Here is a snippet :

nullObj = hou.node('obj').createNode('null')

It returns an "OperationFailed: The attempted operation failed." message.

Is it possible to create a spare parameter in Python in a specific folder ?

It looks like I miss something really simple but I can't find the light :/.
