Just query the API status.

However going for input number or GUID is much easier

I'm with ilovevmix!

What's the point of being able to use find to find the proper input, when you can't do the same for WaitForCompletion??? We need a way to wait for it directly, or to translate to get it's key.

I've been trying to get WaitForCompletion to work all day in both web scripting and vb scripting, and unable to do so unless I put the key or input number in, but that in itself is a bit of work, as you need to call up the status in a web browser to do so. It's not in the input settings. Just more to do! Especially if I move inputs around.

Ideally, I would like to see this work...

Input.Find("Pre-Show Video").Function("WaitForCompletion")

Is it not in the correct format?

Why don't you use the "OnCompletion" trigger on this Pre-Show Video along with the "StartScript" command then ?

Then try again or read the doc again because it works just as it's supposed to work

It could very well be, it fails because it was a multiview, and would not start the multiview inputs!
It works in some places, and not in others, and if you think I would come on here, and +1 ilovevmix without trying to research and make it work when I have so many other things to do for the event I'm programming for Thursday, you're out of your mind! What I have now works, but most of it I had to call for external scripts using the web interface to complete. It's a lot of work going back through and modifying input numbers when you shuffle things about! I don't think it's out of line to ask for the same find capabilities with the WaitForCompletion function!

You might just want to get off that high horse of yours!

Wow! Take it easy, I'm just trying to help here and I'm not responsable for your situation and we're not in a feature request post.
My suggestion was based on the info YOU gave and on what vMix can do. Like it or not, I'm not the one to blame for your misery
