  • Btw, I found this bug because I discovered that objects in the container weren't being picked when the array was picked. Or it wasn't picking the correct objects associated to the array..

    So it seems like a pretty significant bug- was very frustrating trying to figure it out.

    When I tried to modify the array when one of the container objects is created, it produced an error- so maybe that will help fix the issue.

    It might only happen when it is dynamically created at runtime.. I don't think it happens when objects are setup in the layout. but I'm not sure.

  • Don't forget you have a container that exists at the start of layout.

    That array is not implicitly picked by any condition, but neither are the ones just created.

    No idea where that 4th array is coming from.

  • newt , When an object that is part of a container is created in an event, all the other objects of that container get created as well. So you can immediately reference and work with the created objects. However, in this example it throws an error.

    btw.. just noticed that if you restart it, sometimes there is 1, 2, 3, or 4 arrays..!?

  • Yes, like I said though it's not implicitly picked by the condition, the creation event is expected to pick just the new ones.

    That may not be all that's happening.

    Objects referenced in actions and that are not picked by conditions default to the first instance.

    It's possible that the first instance is also being picked.

    But that's probably just a byproduct of a bug with containers and arrays.

    Note to Ashley.

    It doesn't seem to affect dictionaries.
