aiuidref into string

Mar 31, 2013 6:35 PM

How to convert AIUIDRef into string and viceversa? Thanks.




I am able to convert uidref into string

sAIEntry->AsString(entryref, &ch);


However string to uidref does not look so easy.



                AIUIDREFRef uidrefref;

                AIUIDRef uidref;

                AIEntryRef eref;


                sAIEntry->AsUIDREF(eref, &uidrefref);

                sAIUIDREF->GetUID(uidrefref, &uidref);


Tried str with values str, id(str), id( str ), id(\033 str ) etc. Does not seem to work.

    Have you tried AIUIDUtilsSuite::GetArtUIDName()? That just takes an art handle and fills in an ai::UnicodeString. That might be what you want. There's a SetArtUIDName() to go with it.

    I took a look, but I don't see anything unfortunately. If there is a way to use the string version of the UID to turn it back into the UID, I don't see it. I assumed there'd be one as well, that sucks!
