Livery XML file: how to call a nasal script

Postby mhab » Sun Oct 20, 2013 12:37 am


It may be a simple problem, hopefully.

Is it possible to call a nasal script from a Livery specific XML file, so it is executed whenever that livery is loaded ?
I know how to call a script from the "<aircraft>-set.xml" file, but it doesn't seem to work in a livery specific XML file ...

just make it part of the main aircraft-set.xml file and register a listener to get notified once the livery changes and you can run any Nasal code

Or have a /sim/model/livery/script node (is that the right path?) that has a listener that runs it when changed. That way livery files have the code embedded in them. Example Nasal code:

Code: Select all
globals["__livery"] = {}; # namespace for livery scripts

setlistener(props.globals.initNode("sim/model/livery/script", "", "STRING"), func(n) {
    call(bind(compile(n.getValue(), "/sim/model/livery/script"), globals), nil, nil, globals["__livery"]);
(inactive but lurking occasionally...)
