Points of paths

Is there a way to get the points of an geometric object (like a rect). I can see the four points, when I use a lookUp-Node and look for the points. But how can I use them as points? The same with the Resample-Node or an Import-SVG-Node: I can see the points, but I can not work with them, because they are not in a list-format. Is there a way to get the points into a list?

    I had the same question when I was first using Nodebox. The answer is right under your nose:

    Just connect the rect (or whatever) to a point node.

    The point node is not just for creating a pristine new point. It's other purpose is to turn a path into a list of points.

    Enjoy your new power!

    Dear John,

    thank you so much. After I found out myself, what you have answered, I forgot to come back to this forum. But I appreciate your work a lot. It is impressing, what you are doing here.

    Thank you very much. I have so much fun with Nodebox3. I think it is an excellent tool.
    And you are right: it gives you a lot of power.
