Aligner should be working with replications of instances - supertreat - 01 Sep 2016

Hi murl engine team,

Aligners are helping a lot for user interfaces.

Unfortunately they are not working as expected when using with Instances:
I understand that the aligner is only using direct children for alignment. But as Instance is a special node and a common use case is, that instances have replications set to greater than 1. So the aligner should be iterating through the children of Instances. It should align all the children of the Instance as well.

Or am I missing something and there is an easy way or work around to fix this?

I hope you can change this with the next version.

best regards

Hi!

With the next update, the Graph::Aligner node accepts the new "processInstances" attribute, which affects how children implementing the Graph::IInstance interface are handled.

By default, this attribute is set to true, and all individual replications of instance children are treated as if they were direct children of the aligner.

To disable this new behavior, simply set "processInstances" to false.

Best regards,

dizzy
