getQCAssignmentMax(qc, assignment)

Description

Function to retrieve the maximum value of the specified quick control assignment. The quick control assignment is determined by the Layer, the index of the quick control and the index of the assignment itself. For example, this.parent defines the parent layer of the script module as the layer that contains the quick control. The qc argument is the index of the quick control and the assignment argument is the index of the assignment with the requested maximum value. The indices of the quick controls and the assignments both start counting from 1.

Available in: Controller.

Arguments

qcThe index of the quick control.number
assignmentThe index of the quick control assignment.number

Return Values

Returns the maximum value of the specified quick control assignment.

The value range is always 0 to 100 %, even if the mode of the quick control assignment is set to Relative or Switch Relative.

Example

-- print the maximum value of the qc assignment as displayed in HALion
layer = this.parent
qc = 1
assignment = 1
 
qcType = layer:getQCAssignmentType(qc, assignment)
qcMax = layer:getQCAssignmentMax(qc, assignment)
 
-- convert to bipolar range if the qc is of the type relative or switch relative
if (qcType == QCAssignmentType.relative or qcType == QCAssignmentType.switchRelative) then
    qcMax = qcMax * 2 - 100
end
  
print("Maximum value of '"..layer.name.."', QC "..qc..", assignment "..assignment..": "..qcMax..".")
