Python beginner - selecting all nodes of specific type

Recommended Posts


how can I select all nodes of specific type, for example I want to select all the bone nodes and put them inside a network box or just store them in a variable
I tried using hou.objNodeTypeCategory().nodeTypes()['bone'], but couldn't find the way to use the result.

also is there a clean way to add items to a network box, size it around the nodes and layout the nodes inside it?

node_type = hou.objNodeTypeCategory().nodeTypes()['bone']
for x in node_type.instances():
    print x

Using instances() should give you the bone nodes in the scene..
