Script: List Chaos Values by morphapoph Script: List Chaos Values by morphapoph
An Apophysis script that shows a table of chaos values for all transforms in the current open flame. The Script Editor must be open to see the results. Values are shown as they appear under the Xaos tab in the Transform Editor, assuming "View as 'to'" is ticked.
If "View as 'from'" is ticked, values in the table have a horizontal correspondence.

The script should work in any Apo version that uses chaos values.
The script executes without any dialog.
Chaos values are only listed and cannot be changed with the script.

If the table is copied and pasted into an text editor using fixed width fonts, the columns will line up vertically. This shouldn't be necessary when there are less than 10 or so transforms in a flame.

Rerun the script to update the table after any changes to chaos values are made.

I saw people mentioning that they'd like to see a compact view of "Xaos" values in Apo. I thought this script might help until there's some native Apo feature.

Have you seen this -> [link]
I tried the original by Tom Hendriks back when it was released (see the script notes).
I'm not sure if chaos values are included in this or the earlier version.
I do remember that the html pages generated by the original script can be a really cool summary of flame elements.
I'm not necessarily recommending the new revision. I haven't tried it myself but I've used a couple of others from ~rosros-3 without problems..

Hadn't seen this one. Would have to download yet another utility to unpack it.

Yours is fine except for the CTRL+C/V not working. For now I just leave it minimized until needed. ;)

In the bottom script pane, you need to use the right-click context menu. Ctrl+C/V only works in the top pane. Don't know why. I'd like to also have "Select All" in the top pane's context menu, but settle for Ctrl-A.

That's what I forgot to do - the context menu.
It doesn't affect the functionality but line #10 is shifted one position to the right because of the row heading length. Maybe increase the padding for 1-9?

If any chaos values are 100 or more, the columns do lose their alignment.
I didn't anticipate people would be using values so high.
Is that your situation? If so you could try replacing line 31 in the script with these two:

if (transform.chaos[i] >= 10.0) then pad := ' ' else pad := ' ';
if (transform.chaos[i] >= 100.0) then pad := ' ';

If it's not a matter of values > 100, then a screenshot of what you see would be helpful. I don't need actual params, just need to know the values involved.
There are further value combinations that are possible that I didn't consider. Xaos values above 10000 are allowed in Apo, which I only checked just now.
