- column – current column
- row – current row
- state – current view state
- columns – selected number of columns
- rows – selected number of rows
- states – number of view states
Studio V3.0 You can also use the User Data fields:
There is also a helper function:
fill(<string>,<length>,<fill character>) – expands a string to a certain length
You can find a list of the other predefined objects in Qt’s ECMAScript Reference.
Some useful examples of image name patterns. The round brackets around the variables are used to force a mathematical evaluation.
The following examples are explained assuming 10 columns.
'image' + (column) + '.tif'
produces “image0.tif” to “image9.tif”
'image' + (column+1) + '.tif'
produces “image1.tif” to “image10.tif”
'image' + fill(column+1,4,'0') + '.tif'
produces “image0001.tif” to “image0010.tif”
The following example are explained asuming 10 columns and 5 rows.
'out_'+ (row) + '_' + (column) + '.tif'
produces “out_0_0.tif”,”out_0_1.tif”,.. to “out_4_9.tif”
'out_'+ ((rows-1)-row) + '_' + (column) + '.tif'
produces “out_4_0.tif”,”out_4_1.tif”,.. to “out_0_9.tif”
'DSC_' + fill(column+row*columns+234,4,'0') + '.JPG'
produces “DSC_0234.JPG”, “DSC_0235.JPG”,… to “DSC_0283.JPG”. This is useful if you shot a multi row object movie in one go with your digital camera and the first image is “DSC_0234.JPG”.
You can also define functions or arrays within the pattern line. Only the evaluation of the last statement defines the result. If you have, for example, several rows with different names you could use something like this:
rowname=Array('red','blue','green','yellow','pink'); rowname[row] + '_' + column + '.jpg'
This produces the file names “red_0.jpg”, “red_1.jpg”, …. “red_9.jpg”,”blue_0.jpg”,…. “pink_9.jpg”
