Code: Select all
n = REQUEST ("Profile_default_boundingbox", name_or_index, xmin, ymin, xmax, ymax)

This request does not work in the parameter script, so is there some other way I can get parameters calculated from the min max returns to update their relevant parameters?
Code: Select all
Width = abs(_xMax - _xMin)
Height = abs(_yMax - _yMin)

No, but a profile type parameter shows it’s default size in the UI popup (and the request is usable in UI script).

ie. Values calculated from request returns cannot be displayed to the user unless a UI is scripted. So if that is not done, displayed values do not equal executed values.
