Macro/API to copy from repeating section to main section

1507805874
I want to create a repeating section of weapons that includes two macro buttons (each repeat) to copy its attributes to either to weapon one or weapon two on the main page (similar with armour and ammo) so they can be swapped out easily. I would appreciate some guidance if this is at all possible?

This seems likely with the API, but if you can provide some additional details such as the character sheet used and maybe some screenshots of the different sections, it would help (me at least) understand what you want to do.

It can probably be handled with Sheet Workers.  The buttons would effectively be toggles, when the toggle changes, you'd grab all the fields in the same row and update the attributes for the "main section" appropriately.

As Aaron said, certainly doable, but why do you want this functionality? It seems like it's unnecessary attribute bloat.

In the case of an equip left and right hand, I could see this being useful.

Ah, I suppose that would be a decent way to handle TWF.

I will post some screen shots tonight but some of the reasons are 1) the characters will likely have access to armouries allowing them to swap out weapons relitavely easily. 2) as said by others Dual weilding 3) for social interactions knowing if the crew have left their ship loaded for discression or intimidation. (They can indicate they are carrying more but it gives a quick indication) 4) Allowing just a few items on the main tab. 5) for armour swapping out all 10 fields at once so hit loacations and damage reduction can be handled by better automation. (Again reinforced coat vs powered combat armour)

This Tab I want to copy a selected item to this one... there is obviously more formatting and layout to do yet (and correctly labelling buttons etc.)

This can certainly be done with sheet workers, as The Aaron suggests. The important part here is to make the "buttons" for copying things effectively checkboxes that you change to look like buttons via CSS. So if you have a checkbox in the repeating ranged weapon section such as <input type="checkbox" name="attr_copy_to_1" class="sheet-fake-button"> you can then grab all the attributes from the row on the corresponding change event and write them into the non-repeating attributes for page 1. on('change:repeating_rangedweapon:copy_to_1', function () { getAttrs(['repeating_rangedweapon_damage', 'repeating_rangedweapon_range' /* and so on */], values => { setAttrs({ rangedweapon1_damage: v.repeating_rangedweapon_damage, rangedweapon1_range: v.repeating_rangedweapon_range, /* and so on */ }); }); });

Thanks I will give it a go today and let you know how it goes.

Thank you all, Jakob in particular, it took a few attempts (minor spelling glitches) but it now works smoothly and am happy with the result, just need to do some CSS to hide the checkbox and make it look pretty.
