I´m trying to make a object like "2 in 1". Want to be able to have an "on and off" function i.e. that you can chosse whether a part sholud be visible or not. How do I achieve this?

Add a boolean parameter "switch" 
Replace the line text2.... by the part you want to show in option 1 and 2
 
2d script =
 
IF switch THEN
      text2 0,0,"switch = on"
  ELSE
      text2 0,0,"switch = off"
ENDIF

@needretail 

You have labelled your post as "Library Part Maker".

I don't think library part maker can do this.

 

Or are you looking for a solution using Library Part Maker or are you just scripting in GDL.

Cuba has given you a solution for this.

Also I moved this post to the GDL forum.

Which AC version are you using?

Replace the text2 line with your script.

Add a signature to your profile with things like your AC version and some basic computer info as some things maybe software or hardware specific. See link in mine for more info.

What cuba was suggesting is to create a boolean parameter called "switch' or "show_object" - call it what you want.

Then in your 2D and/or 3D scripts you can say ...

 

IF switch = 1 THEN
      ........ !!add your object script here - it will run if the switch is on
  ELSE
      END !!this will show nothing when the switch is off
ENDIF
