When can i use engine->GetObjectTypeByName

Recommended Posts

Hi,

engine->GetObjectTypeByName(SomeClassName);

returns 0 while

mod->GetObjectTypeByName(SomeClassName);

return expected object.
i have only 1 module.

Are these two different from each other?
Do i have to do something special to get object type from engine?

thanks.

The engine method only returns registered types.

The module method returns the types available to module too, i.e. whatever was declared in the script.

Andreas

i am doing this now,

[CODE]
asIScriptContext *ctx = asGetActiveContext();
asIScriptModule *mod = ctx->GetEngine()->GetModule(ctx->GetFunction()->GetModuleName());
[/CODE]
