Shape shifter


Anyone know if it is possible for a shape to change its appearance based on an environment variable being selected?
i.e. The shape may appear as a square in one environment and a circle in another?

Yes.  This is easily do-able.  All in the shapesheet.  You need two geometry sections.  One for each shape.  Then, using your data properties, you toggle true/false the NoShow attribute, thus toggling the visibility.

This link gives an example.  It uses the action section to choose which geometry section.

Thanks wapperdude!!
