Awesome! This is a great list to work off of - should help cut down the number of custom endpoint requests I make to our API support guy exponentially! One other question - may be more of a support issue - any idea how many datalinqs one can active run at once before performance becomes degraded? I ...

We use it on a few of our machines that we forgot to block from updating via group policy. It hasn't presented any issues on Studio and I've been building on W11 on Developer for nearly a year - haven't had any issues on my end when deploying shows onto W10 or W11 based Studio machines. But your mileage ...

Hi! Through some digging in the forum I found an awesome shortcut that allows me to search JSON files for specific key-value-pairs using this method in the "column" section on Set Datalinq Properties and then use the "row" section to search any child attributes. Was curious if there are other shortcuts ...

I'm using a pivot table to change some team shortcodes into various other info and I'm running into an issue where if a column header is numeric (some of my team shortcodes are just numbers) I cannot use them as a column reference value. I can look up the column "RUM" and instantly reference all the ...

Hi all, Curious if the Ross Acuity comes with the ability to speak to other devices (mainly XPressions) over rosstalk by default or if this is an option that needs to be licensed separately. Thanks, Nick ------------------------------ Nick Huntley ------------------------------

Hey Graham, I started in graphics operation several years ago and quickly learned that every show is WILDLY different. I found some shows were as easy as building out a sequencer (by copying templates and filling them out) and then hitting "take next" all day long (generally product reveals or corporate ...

Hey Sean, Two common issues to watch out for: 1. Authorization vs Authentication - the former is standard for a server side oauth, the latter is used sparingly by some servers for some reason, beats me. 2.I've had to remove the colon from the end of Authorization to get it to work before but it ...

Hey Doug, I was afraid of that still being the case. I do like your workaround though, using a scene as, essentially, a global method to "get" data and push it (albeit static) to other scenes. I think that could work for many of our projects with some modifications. I'm still interested in seeing if ...

In theory running this onKeyPress should give me the ability to take any scene object and set it to "datalinq" per the PropertySourceType enumeration: dim scene as xpScene Dim Obj as xpTextObject engine.GetFocusedScene(scene) scene.GetFocusedObject(obj) Scene.SetObjectPropertyString(obj.Name,"Prope ...

Sure, but that doesn't change the switch from "Static Text" to "Datalinq" at the "Select Data Source" level which is the roadblock I keep running into with this specific use case. I want to be able to create a text object, then set it to "datalinq" via API, at the moment it is stuck in "static text" ...

Has this changed in the last 7 years? I'm hoping to make a lot of our graphics more flexible by creating and destroying objects dynamically rather than having hundreds of invisible objects ready to handle data sources but would need to be able to create objects via the SDK that can then be datalinqed ...

Hey everyone, Looking to upgrade several XPressions over the course of the next few months and was wondering if anyone knows of any quirks or issues with any of the supported cards. Specifically we are looking to update the XMIO2 cards we have to gain a 3rd output (alongside replacing some of our oldest ...

This is from the same scene. I am trying to run an onSetText to get another text field by getting that relationally from the first field (self.getparent(othertext)). I believe your earlier message solved the problem, it was less of a "can't get this field" and more of a "all text is set at the same time" ...

I have an onsettext script that I'm using on a text object that is functioning as a control interface on a graphic and it seems unable to "get" another text objects' published values. Trying to do this all relationally (self.getparent(othertext)) so that I can use this across a bunch of scenes in this ...

Got another head scratcher. Is there any way to leverage a library for scripting? I figure the answer is probably a resounding "no" but was curious if anyone has found a workaround that allows me to parse a JSON in any way other than a series of janky "string.indexof()" commands. I had success getting ...

Is there a datalinq server API? Theres a few use cases I can think of where automating the path of a data source inside Datalinq Server would save me time and provide some flexibility (we run a lot of package-specific data sources via some command line applications that all share a common name in datalinq, ...

I don't seem to have that method in v9.5. I have to go back to the drawing board anyways with a lot of the features of this scene but I'll try to keep garbage collection in mind when it comes to how to handle dynamically (api) created objects and where the scripts execute from. You wouldn't happen to ...

Hey Garner, I'm running this as an onsettext and it is creating a quad inside the scene (not a scene copy from what I understand). So when the scene goes offline I imagine it is having to delete a scene object (here "Emote1" quad) which with a non-copy throws an error from what I'm learning here. ...

I'm running into an issue where one of my scripts is warning me "Warning: The internal Datalinq object has been deleted" every time I take the scene online. I've seen this before when closing the project and thought nothing of it but now its concerning me as its happening regularly when I fly a specific ...

Hey Brian, thanks for the quick response! We're on XP9.5v5008. The linebreak appears to work fine when its on its own line but our goal with this is to quickly insert linebreaks into large CSV pulls from a stats API that resembles a spreadsheet, not a line-by-line output. Is there any hope to add in-line ...
