If I don't need to create an object I probably won't, adjusting an
existing object instead. It only saves one step, but its a savings
just the same.
If you're committed to a script-only stack there's no decision to
make: every control must be instantiated dynamically, because a
script-only stack contains the stack script only, no objects.
Well, not quite "every control".
You could :
- if the relevant template control/group exists - copy it
- if not, create it dynamically, and then copy it
- the stack can be script-only
- most instantiations take minimal time
Which reminds me: before I run off an spend an afternoon writing one,
has anyone here written a tool that reads a stack laid out with
objects and produces the script needed to recreate it from a
Seems tedious to write, but less tedious than writing instantiation
code for every property of every object of every card of every stack I
might make script-only.
Haven't done it - but I really should have done by now :-)
