Note

Accessing a key of an attachment controller by indexing into the.keysproperty will return a MAXKey value. The only properties available for a key accessed in this manner are the .time and .selected properties.

Instead, you can use the AttachCtrl.getKey() method which returns a key of class MAXAKey . This class provides access to the attachment controller key specific properties. See Attachment Controller Keys for details and examples.

All the common key functions like deleteKey , selectKeys , movekeys , etc. can be used with Attachment controllers.
