Logging all Structures to a Tree

The Data Configuration feature of Orx makes it simple to build up a complex scene or object with minimal code. All these items are defined in various ini files however the developer chooses to arrange them.

Orx provides a nice way to display a tree view of your Orx objects currently in game, and what structures make them up.

Let's say you had a robot made up of several Objects, Graphics, Bodies and Textures. Also there is a Viewport and Camera:

[MainViewport]
Camera = MainCamera
 
[MainCamera]
Position = (0.0, 0.0, -1.0)
 
[RobotGraphic]
Texture = robot-inside.png
 
[Robot]
Graphic   = RobotGraphic
ChildList = LeftWheel # RightWheel # WeaponObject
Body      = RobotBody
 
[RobotBody]
PartList = RobotBodyPart 
 
[RobotBodyPart]
Type = box
 
[WeaponGraphic]
Texture = weapon.png
 
 
[WeaponObject]
Graphic = WeaponGraphic
Body    = WeaponBody
 
 
[WeaponBody]
PartList = WeaponBodyPart
 
[WeaponBodyPart]
Type  = box
Solid = true

The robot would be created in-game with:

orxObject_CreateFromConfig("Robot);

Use the following command to log out all the current Structures live in your game:

orxStructure_LogAll();

In your console window, a coloured tree will be displayed:

Also, in your game log file, the same output would be generated:

*** BEGIN STRUCTURE LOG ***

*** END STRUCTURE LOG ***

This is very handy for getting a nice overview of your structure layout for debugging or comparison.
