I have a .lblib file and I want to programmatically reference the description. How can I do this?


Place down an invoke node >  right click "Select Method" > Library > Open.

This gives two terminals to the property node "" as a read which outputs the reference and also "Path" in which you can input the file path from your project.

This reference can then be passed into a property node which upon wiring the reference into becomes a library one which has the option to output Description.
