conditional control UI

  • Hello,

    I am want to provide a drawbot script to a client that allows them to execute and choose from a variety of image filters to apply to the canvas. Each image filter comes with distinct settings, and I've encountered difficulty in implementing a dropdown/radio input mechanism that dynamically updates the inputs within the drawbot control UI. Let's say I have filter A and B, filter A has settings M N O and filter B has just settings X Y. If it's not possible, I would just split the image filters into individual files.

    Thanks, Jan

  • I don’t believe it’s possible with DrawBot’s Variables.

    It might be possible to use DrawBot with Vanilla and create your own interface, but I have no first hand experience with that.

    Also, the example script on that page does only work for me if I add this at the top:

    from PyObjCTools import AppHelper

    and this at the bottom:


  • @monomonnik thanks for the idea! It seems like too much custom work for the given budget. I think I will just split it into individual files then. But good to know it might be possible to do, hopefully will use that in some other project

    Variable is not build to be a dynamic UI, but can use a drawBot package to share your code with others and build your own vanilla interface ->

  • on the end I did my own UI and it worked fantastic, thanks for the great work!
