Multiple columns, one param
These instructions are based on the data provided at the beginning of the section describing the connection to a table.
Defining a cell in a column in order to retrieve its content allows you to fill a one-dimensional parameter but, how can you use a table to fill 2 dimensions in the case of a 2D position, 3 dimensions for 3D positioning, or 4 dimensions in the case of an RGBA color?
This is the purpose of the Column Span parameter which allows you to define a batch of columns next to each other, in order to insert them into a single parameter of several dimensions. Without this feature, we would have to switch a multidimensional parameter to Separated mode in order to manually assign each column to each 1-dimensional parameter.
Defining a batch of columns
In the same way as before, the Column parameter allows you to define the first column of a group. Column Span defines the number of columns in this group, from the initial one to the right.
Let's look at the following table:
If you want to insert Pos_X and Pos_Y values into a Position (2D), you set the Column parameter to Pos_X and the Column Span to 2.
Continuing our previous example, we assign a new Bind to table generator to the Position text parameter and perform this operation.
For a 3D param, this values will be set to 3, and for a 4D param (like RGBA color) it will be set to 4.
Keep in mind that this group of columns is from a starting column to the right and that they must all be side by side, with no interfering columns in between.
