    I think about it as a quick study possibility. There is some limitation (for example, all users in one online conference must to have the same Logic Blocks sets)
    Well, this feature for release version 1.1 or so on. This is very convenient, but not so important as others.

    Antares Project can do it. At least - find scripts in the project, for example. It is a simple task.

    Thanks, you are the best.

    The Antares project is really nice. Great job on that. I noticed that in VIZIO you can search the list you have. How do you create the GUI control for a search?

    I've looked at GUI.* and EditorGUI* but I cant find the control :(

    WOW, that is a massive node count! 2 questions about vizio:

    #1: will vizio use GPU for drawing nodes on its initial release?

    #2: will the user be able to create custom nodes(classes)?

    EDIT: Thanks for the C# explanation, I dont use JS any longer(I need a real IDE personally).
    I'm VERY psyched for the releas, thanks for the answers.

    1. VIZIO use the Unity GUI for draw all, what you see in Vizio Editor. Nothing special.
    2. Yes. This is a very simple steps, to create a new one Logic Block (JS can be used too, but I write it in C# now) :

    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2. using Antares.Vizio.Runtime;
    3.  
    4. namespace Antares.Vizio.Blocks
    5. {
    6.     [VisualLogicBlock("Create My game", "Custom Blocks", ParentName = "My Game Creator")]
    7.     public class CreateMyGame : LogicBlock
    8.     {
    9.         [Parameter(VariableType.In, typeof(bool), Name = "Create now?", DefaultValue = true)]
    10.         public Variable create;
    11.  
    12.         [Parameter(VariableType.Out, typeof(bool), Name = "Done")]
    13.         public Variable result;
    14.  
    15.         [EntryTrigger]
    16.         public void In()
    17.         {
    18.             switch ((bool)create.Value)
    19.             {
    20.                 case true :
    21.                    // YOUR CODE HERE
    22.                     result.Value = true;
    23.                     ActivateTrigger();
    24.                     break;
    25.                 case false :
    26.                     result.Value = false;
    27.                     ActivateTrigger("False");
    28.                     break;
    29.             }
    30.         }
    31.  
    32.         public override void OnInitializeDefaultData()
    33.         {
    34.             RegisterOutputTrigger("True");
    35.             RegisterOutputTrigger("False");
    36.         }
    37.     }
    38. }
    39.  
    We will provide step-by-step explanation and docs about Vizio Logic Bloks API. The block creation is very easy process.

    JS Block example:

    Code (csharp):
    1. import Antares.Vizio.Runtime;
    2.  
    3. @VisualLogicBlock("Create My game", "Custom Blocks", ParentName = "My Game Creator")
    4. class CreateMyGame extends LogicBlock
    5. {
    6.     @Parameter(VariableType.In, boolean, Name = "Create now?", DefaultValue = true)
    7.     var create: Variable;
    8.  
    9.     @Parameter(VariableType.Out, boolean, Name = "Done")
    10.     var result: Variable;
    11.  
    12.  
    13.  
    14.     override function OnInitializeDefaultData()
    15.     {
    16.        RegisterOutputTrigger("True");
    17.        RegisterOutputTrigger("False");
    18.     }
    19.  
    20.  
    21.     @EntryTrigger
    22.     function In ()
    23.     {
    24.             switch (create.Value)
    25.             {
    26.                 case true :
    27.                    // YOUR CODE HERE
    28.                     result.Value = true;
    29.                     ActivateTrigger();
    30.                     break;
    31.                 case false :
    32.                     result.Value = false;
    33.                     ActivateTrigger("False");
    34.                     break;
    35.             }
    36.     }
    37.  
    38. }

    LOL....

    Thanks also for the custom block answer. And the C# script(no JS for me anymore ;-).

    It's official(personally speaking), Vizio is my most wanted new Unity addition!!!!
    (next to RNM(radiosity normal map support), and a proper Vertex Animation helper script-shapekeys/blendshapes).

    First stage of Closed Beta Test is launched.
    Now there is only 2 beta-testers. New testers will be added very soon (we should write base description for non russian-speaking testers).

    I think, I hope, VIZIO will be better than Virtools or Quest3D or UDK's Kismet. Because it based on Unity power.

    Sweet :)

    anything more complex in real scripting?
    The past screenshots the last few weeks were all ongui, for which I personally wouldn't touch visual scripting at all due to the massive size they result visually in (as the screenshots also show) while not containing anything aside of declarations commonly (for UI I would use GUIX, not visual scripting)

    In my opinion, GUI in Unity is most difficult code. But, sure, VIZIO is not a GUI Editor - this is just a little slice from UnityEngine and .NET
    But, Dremora, did you think, what if VIZIO can create the GUI, than VIZIO can't do any others stuff ? All others is pretty simple.

    Here is a little project, created in VIZIO in 2.5 days. Not fully, but on 70%
    http://www.unity3d.ru/ANTARES/VIZIO/FirstCommercialProject/WebPlayer.html

    With this editor, yoг can write absolutely all, what can be written in dotnet Unity. If any Logic Block is not present - any programmer can easily create your own block and use it in any next projects. All, what is wriiten in dotnet and posted on this forum or community WIKI can be included in VIZIO with few code modifications.

    Neodrop, is it possible to have some documentation files now?
    To have a little look and to prepare ourselves for the real thing.

    Sorry, guys, unfortunately, the docwriting is the last work stage for as. But, soon we will create a series of video descriptions for VIZIO Editor. I hope it help.

    videos will be even better(for me in most cases) than written documentation :)
    though its hard to beat a searchable pdf(or html, etc) when it's needed.

    Waiting for VIZIO impatiently ! This is what I have been waiting for, a real visual scripting tool. Now, my question: how optimized is the generated code ?

    VIZIO is not a code generator.
    When you create the visual graph,
    VIZIO create no one line of the code
    .
    Ever.
    All, what you need to optimize is your own visual graph.

    Is it possible to export a graph to code? I know I personally prefer flowcharts and don't care much for regular code but being able to export to code I think would make it more comfortable for traditional programmers (or for collaboration projects anyways).

    Keep up the great work, I can't wait and Vizio sounds like its shaping up to be the dream tool :)

    Right now this possibility is not provided. But this feature can be created in the future.

    But, I think, this is not necessary.
