And maybe you could explain when and what error you are getting and what your goal is ?

Didn’t see this. Don’t have notifications on. Am in the middle of the Australian outback.

If you copy that script in to your vMix you’ll see that it returns either an invalid argument or an undefined error.

You are right, my appologies for not explaining that snippits of code a lot of times do not apply to ones own setup correctly.
- do you have a replay input or an input # 10 in your setup?
- twice doing a "dim StatOff .." like here is wrong. Pik one or the other line of code ( or comment one out like the word "or" is)
- its an example of how one can retrieve a status by refering by the input number or by the type of an input here (see diff in specifying) . Should have specified if one wanted a state of both such inputs one should/could use another variable name
- those are examples , often even not the only way to achieve something by code
- good catch, thank you

Link the datasource to a (visually unused) title field
read the content of the title field (the filepath)
perfrom the function to load as input the gathered filepath

How can I correctly read the content ? What command do it right. Also I think I need to assign this value to a any variable ?

There are multiple examples on how to read from title and put results in a variable in this specific about scripting thread (17 pages) you posted this question in
Good idea is to read thorugh this whole post/thread to learn about scripting

Script for get filepath from DataSource and Add that file as new Input and rename it.

dim track as string = Input.Find("TRACK").Text("Headline.Text")
console.writeline(track)
API.Function("AddInput",Value:="AudioFile|"&track)

dim xml as string = API.XML()
dim x as new system.xml.xmldocument
x.loadxml(xml)

dim nodeList as XmlNodeList = x.GetElementsByTagName("input")
dim inputNumber as string
for each node as XmlElement In nodeList
inputNumber = node.GetAttribute("number")
next
console.Writeline("Last Input : " & inputNumber)
API.Function("SetInputName",Input:=inputNumber,Value:="MUSIC " & inputNumber)
API.Function("SetText",Input:="TRACK",SelectedIndex:="1" ,Value:="MUSIC " & inputNumber)

No (would need to handle your datasource externally coded

please read the documentation "Shortcut Function Reference"

Code:

dim xml as string = API.XML()
dim x as new system.xml.xmldocument
x.loadxml(xml)

'set the name of your list
dim SI = (x.SelectSingleNode("//input[@shortTitle='Wowsers']/@selectedIndex").Value)

'set the numbers of your list items and decide what to do
If SI = "14" Then
API.Function("Selectindex", Value:="1", Input:="Wowsers")
ElseIf SI < 14 Then
API.Function("NextItem", Input:="1")
End if


Only works if 'Wowsers' is the first item in the preset.
(Put any source in front of it and it does not work, does not error out)

"NextItem", Input:="1" -->try to change also this value either to name you give or input number of list

Can find that state in the Last.vmix preset file (maybe in named preset file also) . Mind you this Last.vmix preset file autoupdates only every minute

Thanks, Doggy!
That states for all inputs must be in preset if preset is stored and last preset. But to get one is hard from preset.
I have two ways to get one, but those are not good ideas, I think other ways are.

1) input
Layer1 -on
Layer2-none
Layer3-off
Layer4-none
After changing state of each layer change a name input as state layer On-1, Off-0, None-3
Rename input - 1303
I can’t use input by name, I can use it only by key. I have to give the name for input manually the first time and this is not quite right. All scripts change state layers must rename inputs.

2) In other way write states to a file. Make file and write state layers by all scripts which can change state layers.
Should write inputs manually the first time.

Not really , they are xml files (some items are strings that contain xml code of thei own-) )

maybe this workaround will help.
Instead of switch the layer on/off you can change the Layer Input to "none" (with shortcuts) and then check the status with a script.

somethings like:

Code:
dim Input1Layer1on as string = ""
dim Input1Layer1on_exists as string = "yes"
try
Input1Layer1on = (x.SelectSingleNode("//input[@number='"& Input1name &"']/overlay[@index='0']/@key").value)
Catch ex as Exception
Input1Layer1on_exists = "no"
end try

if Input1Layer1on_exists = "yes" then...do something crazy

Thanks, Salvatore!
All layers turn On. Then "OFF" as "Set_Layer_NONE" and "ON" as Set_Layer_SomeInput. That is good idea.
Well, I need to rewrite all the scripts (((( with new idea.

Sorry, in code - Input_number as Numder or Input_name as Title. Somebody can copy code and VB_Try hides typing error )))
