Can I trigger "Action Button" script on a paramater from Python? Aug. 21, 2019, 10:56 a.m.

I want to trigger the action button script of a parameter from a Python tool.

In my example the action button of a group node basegroup parameter.

I thought it would be something like:
hou.parm('hou.parm('/obj/box_object1/group1/basegroup').pressButton()
but that does not seem to work.
I guess I need a different path to it. Any ideas?

Can I plug geometry selections into Houdini Engine (without sets)? [Maya 2019.1] Aug. 19, 2019, 4:28 a.m.

It seems like one of the most essential parts of developing tools for Maya, is that you can easily make geometry selections and the tool picks them up.
I was hoping that I can use a string parameter that way and have that in a multiparm. The important part is, that the geo selection relates to the parameters in the multiparm.
Do you need an RFE for that?

Can I plug geometry selections into Houdini Engine (without sets)? [Maya 2019.1] Aug. 15, 2019, 2:47 a.m.

I want to do a workflow where I first plug in a mesh and then specify one or more faces (or vertices) on that mesh to guide the HDA.
Ideally I would have the additional face selection as separate inputs of some kind in a multiparm and they would not require the use of sets.
Has anyone done such a setup? How did you do it?

On a somewhat related note, can anyone give an example of how they use string parameters?
