Is there a way to create a VDMX UI drop down list for a Vuo FX?

I want to create an FX with a drop down list containing the following selectable values to pass to vuo.layer.make / Anchor:

top left, top center, top right, center left, center, etc.

You mean like a VDMX input that controls the Anchor ? Checking the supported Vuo <-> VDMX ports, Anchor is not one of them yes. What about making an Integer list that would be mapped to a select node ? (but you'd been missing the anchor names though).
Here right-click the published Integer list with a max. set at 5.

Ah yeah, get item from list is even better than select, well done.

Yes, suggest, but suggest what ? Just support for layer anchor ? Or support all Vuo data types ? Or a drop down that would accord to a list, whatever the port type ?

Or maybe on Vuo level there is still to be done. Like maybe a related feature request would be Editor support for dictionaries (lists of key/value pairs), there you could pair the layer anchor (or whatever other data type) with some name text list and then ask the VDMX team to create some kind of "List Input Selector" (for text at least, or more ?) ?

On a short-term workaround mode I was wondering if some already supported feature could be used, but from the VDMX doc I don't really see any, except maybe "Image-type inputs will be represented in VDMX as a pop-up button with a list of all available video sources (other layers, video inputs, syphon sources, etc)." but I don't understand what that means. I wondered as far as "maybe it would be possible to create some fake image/video sources/names, map those, and use this pup-up button" ?

I think in the short term a feature request on the VDMX side for support for Vuo UI pop-up buttons would be a good addition. VIDVOX just announced that are waiting for Vuo v2 to get to a stable release and then it will be upgraded in VDMX so we might see changes at that point.
