ROADMAP: List Parameters

Currently you can’t edit List parameters in the details panel. The ability to have lists is going to be essential for many users and future features so it needs to be added. Lists have a complication associated with them that means it’s not a straight-forward task and some thought and planning is needed to support proper list authoring. The issues can be summarised thus:

  • Lists need to know the type of data they are supposed to contain (e.g. float/int).
  • Lists of mixed types can be used as structures so we need a place to define structure types.
  • Lists can contain other Lists/structures to any depth so some quite complex hierarchies of structures/lists can be expressed.

All these considerations need to be well supported in the details panel such that authoring them is not restrictive or unpleasant.
