Object Types

From The Foundry MODO SDK wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Objects have multiple types depending on how they are implemented.

Internal

Internal objects are things that exist only inside nexus. Interfaces are presented allowing SDK access to them, but they cannot be extended or replaced.

Local

There may be many different implementations of these objects, but a single plug-in client only ever sees their own.

External

On rare occasions objects are only ever implemented as part of plug-ins, but can still be seen by other plug-ins.

Mixed

Mixed objects may be implemented internally, or they may have implementations rooted in plug-in code.

Server

Servers are a specific type of mixed object. They are not only implemented both internal and external to the nexus library, but they have unique types and names allowing them to be created at will.
