Something like:

ChangeCountdown changes the time when its allready running and time is in the HH:mm:ss format
Also check spelling (SelectedName with a d)
a good idea is to verify a function by use of its shortcut
The question was in regards to be able to use the slectedName not in regards to a countdown which has multiple functions to control it (change,se, start , pause etc
SetText is the most basic function to populate a title field and is NOT related to a countdown

get the Input's innertext matching the number

Code:
'X is the variable holding the input number
Dim name as string = x.SelectSingleNode("//input[@number=" & X & "]").InnerText


maybe im stupid but i cant manage how to do it.

What is the issue? Chatgpt not giving an answer?

OP asked to retrieve the name op an input that is refered to by the number retrieved from the overlay given from the api xml.

The issue is that i cant understand the message error it gives to me. it says operator "is not defined for types 'string' and 'system.xml.xmlDocument'. Chatgpt give some answers that in theory may work but unfortunatelly doesnt know the limitations that vmix script vb.net console have that not recognise correct that functions that exist in vb.net like end sub and etc.. So i hope that vmix in version 28+ will include and support 100% full vb.net support so people that are really dummies like me,will do the job via the new technology if they try

showing the code might help us figure it out
keep in mind that when trying to read the API XML and the data searching for is empty a script will throw an error. One should take that in account within a script to catch this to avoid the script crashing.

If one wants to take full advantage of vb.net better create scripts outside of vMix (using visual studio) .This will allow you to create functions and subs. Vmix dosnt allow subs etc , see helpfiles

Doubt highly vMix will ever make a visual studio substitude

A good idea is to learn some basics about vb.net (or any language) and the use of variables instead of relying on chatgpt or willy nilly throwing something into existing copied code

line 1 and 2 above do exactly the same thing : putting the inputnumber used as overlay in a (different) variable
As mentioned before "'X is the variable holding the input number" and you are using a different variable (ovl1input and dateiname , but have not define X)
So need to replace the variable reference (X) to yours in the example code


Code:
ovl1input = (x.SelectSingleNode("//overlays//overlay[1]").InnerText)
Dim name as string = x.SelectSingleNode("//input[@number=" & ovl1input & "]/@title").InnerText

console.writeline(name )


Mind the little addition/correction by the added /@title

Also there is no error trapping (Try..Catch) included hence when calling this and there is no overlay active you will get an error/script crash

Also a good idea to check returns is to display the results in the console for instant debugging

Thank you very much. It work perfect. Yes it crash when there is no overlay but i can very easy workaround over it. Yes you`re right about learning the basics of a language but this seems to me, like a mountain even higher from everest! Google of course has all the needed info but someone needs years to read all that info. AI is not the solution for everything and if you see my posts here in forum. i never throw an AI answer without a bit of explain or without having it try first myself. Anyway thank you again, you saved me another one time!

Why post same question in 2 different posts ?

What have you been able to figure out seeing you posted in this thread after reading through it ?

Have you tried a search ?

Hello. Vmix cannot change "on the fly" a input. Yes there is in the input settings in the up right corner the button "change" but this work only manual way. Something in an auto way that vmix api commands support is add a video input or remove an existing video input. With this in mind yes it is possible to do what you need if you know how to do it. Some steps you may possible have to follow
1. Make a new title as vmix input and link to it the datasource that will have the path of the videos or any other info that needs
2.Make a script that will read the info from the title and when the text changes (according to what you select in datasource manager) will do a search in the c:\videos folder and it will send the command to add the new name video input and remove if need the old one
In this thread you will find some other examples to start. In theory is something like this. In practice if you never make script again and you need it quickly, you need to study a lot or pray a guru-expert guy of this thread will give you the whole solution
Or the most simple way make a list input,put there all your videos,disable the auto-next if not need and do from there the whole play-pause

Countdown to date and time with auto reset/advance

Countdown to date and time with optional function(s) trigger resetting it to next date/time interval . example: every seven days at same time

Code:
Dim enddate As DateTime = DateTime.Parse("2024-1-21 10:30:00")
Dim startdate As DateTime 
Dim ts As TimeSpan
Dim count as string

Do while true

  startdate = DateTime.Parse(Date.Now)
  ts = enddate.Subtract(startdate)
 
  if enddate >= startdate
    count=CStr((ts.Days) & " days " &  CStr(ts.Hours)) & " Hrs, " & CStr(ts.Minutes) & " mins, " & CStr(ts.Seconds) & " secs"
    API.Function("SetText",Input:="9",SelectedName:="Headline.Text",Value:=count)
    'console.writeline(count)
    sleep(1000)
  else
    ' any function acting as trigger when countdown is finished
    ' and resetting countdown 
    enddate=enddate.AddDays(7)
  end if
Loop

Not sure if this for serious useage or to "prank" a system but google can give you the answer (hence i dont post the code just yet)
Hint: vb.net shutdown windows

Thank you. It's not a prunk. I really need to suspend PC at the end of night stream.
I found the solution
Code:
 Process.Start("c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe", "powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState")

well this works for shutting down (change value of 00 for time delay) . it calls shutdown.exe

Code:
Process.Start("shutdown", "-s -f -t 00")
