Fill Grid


Please forgive me Im abit vaugue still with vvvv. I am trying to fill an iobox(string) with 20 rows and 20 columns with the columns and row reference for that “cell”


C1R1 C2R1 C3R1 …
C1R2 C2R2 C3R2 …
C1R3 C2R3 C3R3 …

and so on

The number of rows and columns could change so I was thinking of a couple of string ioboxes one with “C” and one with “R” then a couple of iobox(value) = 20 in this case. Is there then a way to merge all this data to create what I need. I keep using + string nodes but thats giving odd results as it then gives C1R1 C2R2 C3R3 etc.


Select (String) is your friend. see patch

Amazing Thanks

Actually one of the things I needed to be able to do was to change the rows and columns independently. I’ve then tried adding another select and altering the ioboxes but I don’t think I’m quite getting the relationship? I have attached what I’ve done…

I think you need to play around with get and setspread and swapdim

Thanks sunep. I will look into those

sounds like a job for VL.

if i understand correctly, what you are looking for is Cross (2d). I’ve made a patch which compares the vvvv solution with Cross node and the VL solution with a nested Loop, needs vvvv alpha of course:
