Maxscript read data after prefix
show user profile  3joez
Say I have node names like object_01, object_02, object_03 and so on.

How do I read the numbers after the suffix "_" to plug them into variables?

I've ran into another strange, but apparently simple problem.

I've collected a strings array. Let's call it collection . It contains one element (that's what filterstring does).

That element contains the string "1". I want that string to be converted into a number.

No matter what, I cannot convert it to an integer.

I've tried:

collection[1] as int --> gives unable to convert

collection as int --> gives unable to convert

You need to spell out "integer" i.e. - collection[1] as integer

$Entrepreneur = if((Designer + Engineer)*Programmer){Problem Solver};

I was missing a parenthesis (collection as integer).
