Hello,

 

I have an problem to manage / link Quality Changes containers in one of my new Plug-in.   I don't have any problem to get the Quality changes containers associated with a machine by using the findInstanceContainers function. But I get at least two containers for each profil : one for the Extruder ( if it's a single extruder machine ) and one for the global stack.  But I don't know how is made the link between this two containers and how we can detect if it's an extruder container or a global one.   The only possibility is to analyse the Id. But this doesn't look a very clean solution to me.

Do you know if there are any other function / method / key to anlyse the "type" of containers and the link between these files ?

 

Thanks in advance

    Ok so using  getName() to validate if it's the same  "Profile" and getMetaDataEntry("position") is not None  to analyse if it's an "extruders" or "global"  container ?
