pluto - gnuradio - update attb block string only


My goal is to be able to call fast lock profiles from gnuradio - no problem if you want the profile number to be static, but if you try to swap the profile number via a variable it's almost impossible as none of the gnuradio variables or parameters allow strings, the update attribute block only allows strings.

For 3 days i tried via windows python to connect to the ad9361 but get a swig error every time.

So if anyone can suggest a windows method to write the attributes, the perfect solution would be python so i can write my own block that modulate from profile 0-7
