LDD lua console

It was brought to my attention by @WillKirkby that LDD, in developer mode, has a lua console. 

 

If you want to participate in the digging yourself here's a list of commands that have been helpful to us:

Dump the keys of a table:

dumptable = function(foo) local stuff="" for key in pairs(foo) do stuff=stuff .. key .. "\n" end error(stuff) end

Dump the keys of an object/userdata

dumpmetatable = function(foo) dumptable(getmetatable(foo).__index) end

Why can't we use print()?

 

 

I hear your cries and we wish we could too. But the lua console has disabled print so we have to use error(). The issue with error is that it'll break loops. 

 

First poking around in the scripts in the assets.lif, we've found the global variable LDD. This is a table and its contents is as follows:

 

Edit: Recreated the print function sorta. This will terminate loops though.

 

print = function(...) local items = {...} local final = "" for pos, item in pairs (items) do if (pos ~= 1) then final = final .. " " end final = final .. tostring(item) end error(final) end

 

controls
commands
UserHasAccessToBrand
window
GetDeveloperMode
application
brickPalletControl
sceneManager
controlManager
tools
sceneControl
brickDatabase
webCommunicator

So far I've only taken a look at sceneControl. It has these functions:

ResetCamera()
ZoomInOut(number)
RotateUpDown(number Degrees) (Degrees in radians)
RotateLeftRight(number Degrees)
Create(?)
New(?)

There's also a Layout(string LayoutType) function that's not shown in the metatable for some reason.

Calling the function:

LDD.sceneControl:Layout("ViewModeToolbarLayout")	

Gives us a toolbar in the scene. This does allow you to explode models when in build mode.

Edit 1:

 

Been dumping the methods and properties of the classes in the tables LDD & ldd. A lot more has to dumped but starting to get somewhere with the LDD.controls.editMode table.

There's manipulation of the UI that I would like to do but can't figure out right now.

That's all I've had time to poke around in right now. I'll update this later.

Oh boy I can't wait to abuse this and potentially bug out LDD :af:

The exploding just causes the model to fly away, the object remains in the same space. Kinda disappointing because I wanted to drag around exploding parts.
