This is a plugin for Autoplay Media Studio 8 only!
This plugin allows you to preform actions on the AMS objects in a more pure-lua and object oriented form. The plugin contains all AMS functions for object in OOP form. A few extra functions are added, these are only listed in the helpfile, because the Action Dialog displays the functions incorrectly. Only Object.Create, Object.GetPageHandle, Object.GetDialogHandle are listed in the Action dialog. Also, Grid.GetCellState is added to the action dialog, because this function wasn't documented in the AMS helpfile nor actionXML files.
Make sure to read the helpfile about the extra functions and their usage, the usage for all native functions can be found in the AMS helpfile, for that object.
As from version 188.8.131.52 this plugin now also contains the as we call it, POTF (Properties on the fly) system. Which means, that you can just type the object's name, followed by a .Properties and following that a . and a fieldname. This will automatically update the properties of that object. eg:
Input1.Properties.Height = 50;
This will change the height of the object to 50, without having to call a function! As of version 184.108.40.206, this is now supported on Page/Dialog ObjectHandles aswell, check the helpfile for Object.GetPageHandle and Object.GetDialogHandle.
As from version 2,0, Stacking and chaining is possible, also SMOTF! Read the manual on these new features!

The extra functions are not the only extra functions future versions of this plugin may contain a quite expanded list of extra functions.

This plugin requires the Autoplay Media Studio 8 runtime engine,
