    I am trying to figure out a simple way to search a list for a specific object, but no matter what I try I can’t seem to come up with an elegant solution.
    After some time on google it seems like using List<T>.Contains Method ( would be the way to do it in C#, but I’m not able to figure out how to access that in flowCanvas :/


    You can use List.Contains method in FlowCanvas too.
    Here is a small step-by-step for example:

    1) Create a list variable:

    2) Drag the variable into the editor canvas and select “Get”, to create a node that gets the variable value.

    3) Drag the “Value” output of that new node into empty canvas. This will pop up a list of everything you can do with that type of value. In this case (List).

    Within the List category in that popup you will see a lot of list related methods. One of them is Contains. Click it to create a new node that check if the List contains an element.

    For the shake of this example, I added a few more nodes to showcase something more practical:

    Let me know if that is indeed what you were after.

    Oh wow, that was embarrassingly simple 🙂
    Great! That was exactly what I was after. Thank you so much again Gavalakis.

    I think the main reason why I was having a hard time getting this to work was because when you hit spacebar and search for “contains” this specific “List-Contains-Transform” node does not appear. The only thing that shows up in the search was a “Contains” node that works with strings.

    PS: thank so much for adding the Duplicate and Delete multiple hotkeys in 1.3.2. They are very useful.


    You are very welcome!
    I think dragging and dropping a port into empty canvas is the best way to get all nodes that are possible to be performed with that dragged port’s type 🙂
