Title says it all. I know the basics of Lua, but am mostly ignorant when it comes to manipulating metatables and other built-in table methods. I’d like to set custom properties on any arbitrary table in the API, but attempting to do so fails with an error like:
app.activeSprite.layers.foo = "bar"
[string "internal"]:1: stack traceback: [string "internal"]:1: in function '__generic_mt_newindex' /path/to/myscript.lua:1: in main chunk: Cannot set field foo
Is there a metatable I can edit or something so I can actually set properties (other than on the .data field, which only lets me set strings)?
