I think I know the answer, but is there any way to access an attribute value for the nth copy in a repeating child component? As it is, the child values are for the “COPY 0.0” copy.
Here is my situation: I have a grid array. Scaling increases and decreases the copies Assume I make an array 3x3, below shows the COPY attribute value.
6 7 8 3 4 5 0 1 2
Interacting with each copy will hide it, via some OnClick magic. If I interact with copies 1,2 and 7, the HIDDEN attribute values are now:
0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 1
If in the parent I create a custom attribute with the formula =child!hidden, it will return the value for copy zero, or “0” What if I want to report up to the parent other copy hidden values?
What if I want to count how many copies are hidden and put that into a parent attribute? Even if I could concatenate a new attribute value like “011000010”, representing the nth values from copy 0 to copy 8, that would be something I could work with.
I am going to guess the answer is yes with Ruby, no with built-in DC functionality.
