Posted · findInstanceContainers(type="quality_changes")



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

    If it's an extruder one it has the "position" metadata.

    This is also what Cura uses internally (https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/blob/69dc54b76334dfe2d08c8f68bcc321a46a3e8800/cura/Settings/CuraContainerRegistry.py#L734-L753) to check if a profile is a global one or an extruder profile

    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 ?
