ScriptAsset

ScriptAsset is an Object representing a script asset in Project Content. When a script is executed from a call to require(), it can access the script asset using the script variable.

This can be used to read custom properties from the script asset.

GetCustomProperties

GetCustomProperty

In this example we have two scripts. The first one is only in project content and behaves as the ScriptAsset. The second script is placed in the hierarchy. To complete the setup, the first script is assigned as a custom property of the second script, so that require() may be called on it.

-- Contents of the first script that is in project content, but not in the hierarchy
print("Script Asset: " .. script.name .. ", " .. script.id)
local assetProperties = script:GetCustomProperties()

for k,v in pairs(assetProperties) do
    print(k, ":", v)
end

local FOO = script:GetCustomProperty("Foo")
if not FOO then
    print("The script asset does not have custom property 'Foo'")
end

-- Contents of the second script, that is in hierarchy and requires the script asset
require( script:GetCustomProperty("MyFirstScript") )
