Extract string attribute from point

Recommended Posts

I've looked here and I didn't find the answer so I am asking for help on this one.

How do I extract a string attribute from points?

I am trying the point function but it just returns numbers, even with the points attributes being strings.

I have a string attribute on each point that will be my object name and I want to call this attribute from a delayed loader shader.

So I tried this on the file parameter on the shader "$HIP/bgeo/model_`point("/obj/myPointInstance/OUT",instancepoint(),"kind",0)`.$F.bgeo", which "kind" attribute would be something like "girl","boy" or "kid", I know I can use numbers but I prefer to do it with strings because all my files are already named.

Can anyone help me with that?
