using "Item label template" to number array items

Evan_ReeseEvan_Reese Member Posts: 682 PRO
I'm trying to name each item in an array parameter. My first thought was to add a hidden Count Parameter and update it with editing logic, which works, but doesn't update with you just click the button to add a new item. It waits till I change something else. Is there another way to do this? I might be overcomplicating it.

    Can you link the code? Unless I'm misunderstanding, adding a new array item should rerun the editing logic function and allow the hidden parameters to be set.

    Thanks, Kevin. Just knowing that's a reasonable approach made me check my code again and I found I the editing logic for this was inside of a big if() that was giving the odd behavior I'm describing. So editing logic is your recommended solution for this though?

    Currently array item names depend only on feature parameters, so yes, I think editing logic is the only available solution. Feel free to submit an improvement request to introduce a syntax for including the item number!

    Thanks, If it seems to come up more often, I'll do that.
