Command overview

Commands are a powerful concept in DMXControl. Originally develops it turned out to trigger certain actions by external input devices (MIDI controller, computer keyboard) that the internal communication also profits from the command concept between modules.

Some examples of commands:

Typical appearance of commands:

  • in a cue expiry of the cue list
  • assignt to the buttons of the commabd box
  • started in the audio player or in the text book module
  • used into chasers
  • assigned into movement cues to the individual figure points
  • the original purpose: the integration of hardware operating devices

Almost every module in DMXControl offers commands of its own that otherwise keyboard or mouse intensive processes can much be automated now which means. The commands available are explained in the command overview.

Certain processes need a parameter value (for example "factor of the acceleration" etc. ) in addition to the command, either this one definitely agrees in the command authority or (if the flag ask for value is set) is questioned by dialog box.

The flag toggle has influence on the behavior of puh buttons (on external controllers) or buttons (e.g. in the commando box). The Control which means a click switches on the Control either or turns off is put into a so-called Toggle mode depending on previous condition. One can hereby button at a MIDI keyboard an effect be assigned, for example, either this one runs either as long as the button is held (Toggle-Flag off) or as long as another time is pushed to the button (Toggle-Flag on).

Being able to become certain functions with commands within DMXControl triggered. This chapter delivers a survey of all commands.

General

An order has the basic structure: <Module> - <Device/Functions> - <Channel> - <Flag> -<Value>

  • <Module> the mentioned object (ageneral a tool) which shall execute this one is
  • <Funktionen> the provided methods/actions or "sub-objects" of the module are, of course they are different depending on a select module
  • <Kanal> either an attribute or the operation at sub-objects is
  • <Flag> describe the attitudes of the command
  • <Wert> submits a parameter to the attribute or the operation

The command entry is supported at the petition by the GUI surface by only the possible values turning up for the choice always.

Flag

4 flags can be put parallel here:

  • Toggle mode - This flag has influence on the instruction execution. Commands are usually executed by buttons when pushing and relase (respectively with corresponding value). The toggle mode suppresses the execution when letting off so that e.g. an active effect remains switched on up to the next keystroke.
  • Use specified value - This flag is, whether this one specified instead of the real (e.g. of DMXIn) shown off with fed value shall be used.
  • Ask for value - A dialog box appears to enter the value to the running time. E.g. this can make sense at the call of commands over the keyboard or command box to avoid many uniform commands which are different only by a value.
  • Ignore value 0 - With this parameter the function of "letting off" can be stopped if the value 0 results from it. An command with this flag only can be concluded by another command or be overwritten by other values at times. For example: Unlike the toggle mode the active effect also remains after let off active the button and another keystroke cannot be switching off again either.

Device/Functions

Defaults with the following generic meaning methods appear at objects, also which offers a register, lists or drop down choice of elements (e. g. audio player -> track, scene list -> list, chasers-> chase) here besides the dynamic ones:

  • Selected - das gerade aktuelle Element wird angesprochen
  • Next - das folgende Element in der Liste wird angesprochen
  • Previous - das vorige Element in der Liste wird angesprochen
  • --- (Separator) - no function

Channel

If start/stop is chosen, the respectively complementary operation is carried out for the action just executed.

Value

 Attention The values are expected standardizedly from 0. 000 to 100. 000, so one must imagine the petition in per cent values. It is supported for finer dissolvings up to three fractional digits.
