Changing object parameter properties in a method

I've got a world method which takes an object as a parameter. I'd like to make the object invisible at the beginning of the method.

When I'm not using a parameter, I can select the object I want to hide, click on the Properties tab, and drag [B]isShowing [/B] into a method in order to change the value.

I can't find a way to do this with an object passed as a parameter. Is this possible and I'm just missing it?

It's possible, but sometimes the "drag and drop" interface behaves a bit strange, or at least counterintuitive.

The best way is to set up the commands using a regular object and then substituting the parameter. If you are using a "part named" tag, you also have to be sure the object being passed does have the part.

Thanks, that works. I should have thought of that.
