The Dynamo node library performs actions on all kinds of data, not just numbers. This video is focused around the string data type, which is the computer science term for text or a string of characters. Once you've created your first string, learn about some commonly used nodes that take string data as an input.
- Now lets focus on Dynamo String data type…which is the computer science term…for text or a string of characters.…Once we've created our first string…we'll cover some of the commonly used…nodes that use string data as an input.…In architecture, engineering or construction…work flows, strings are frequently used…in similar ways to a text perimeter in Revit.…Maybe it will be a mark or a key value…or some other identifier for objects or data,…and sometimes they're used as notes or complete sentences.…
Lets begin this example by dropping…in a string input which we can find…in the input basic section of the node library.…Lets go ahead and click on the gray box…inside the string node and give it a value.…I'll type this is a string.…Most of the nodes that we'll use in this video…will perform functions on strings…that they take as an input and they'll…come from the strings section in the node library.…Lets begin with the ChangeCase node…which falls under the modify section…of the string library.…
This node takes two inputs,…
