Sets the port value as a Variant at a specific frame. The type of the value depends on ICENodePort.DataType. This method can be used only when the port is not connected. If the port is connected, the method has no effect.

Note: Only simple types such as float, integer and boolean are supported. Other value types are not yet supported.

Tip: Values for non-supported types can be set with ICENodePort.Parameters.

C# Syntax

ICENodeInputPort.PutValueAtFrame( Object inFrame, Object in_val );

Scripting Syntax

ICENodeInputPort.PutValueAtFrame( Frame, Value );


Parameter Type Description
Frame Variant Frame at which to set the value.
Value Variant Value as described by ICENodePort.DataType. Types are limited, see note above.


Python Example

# This example demonstrates how to set a non-connected Node port value at different time
import win32com.client
from win32com.client import constants
xsi = Application
xsi.NewScene("", 0)
xsi.CreatePrim("Grid", "MeshSurface", "", "")
xsi.ApplyOp("ICETree", "grid", "siNode", "siPersistentOperation", "", 0)
xsi.AddICENode("InitializeNode", "grid.polymsh.ICETree")
xsi.SetValue("grid.polymsh.ICETree.InitDataNode.PredefinedAttributeName", "EdgeLength", "")
xsi.AddAttributeToSetDataICENode("grid.polymsh.ICETree.InitDataNode", "EdgeLength", constants.siComponentDataTypeFloat, constants.siComponentDataContextComponent1D, constants.siComponentDataStructureSingle )
xsi.SelectObj("grid.polymsh.ICETree.InitDataNode", "", "")
initDataNode = xsi.Selection(0)
nodeport = initDataNode.InputPorts("EdgeLength")
xsi.SaveKey( "grid.polymsh.ICETree.InitDataNode.EdgeLength", 1.000, 5.000 );
xsi.SaveKey( "grid.polymsh.ICETree.InitDataNode.EdgeLength", 5.000, 25.000 );
xsi.LogMessage( "EdgeLength value at frame 1: " + str(nodeport.GetValueAtFrame(1.0)) )
nodeport.PutValueAtFrame( 5.0, 85.0 )
xsi.LogMessage( "EdgeLength value at frame 5: " + str(nodeport.GetValueAtFrame(5.0)) )
# Expected results:
# INFO : EdgeLength value at frame 1: 5.0
# INFO : EdgeLength value at frame 5: 85.0
