Hi All,

I've been struggling with this. I need to create a ticker from VMix Social.

If i create just a single ticker, i can only put a single field into the ticker.
With a social ticker, we obviously need to see "fromName" as well as "message". Is there a way of including BOTH fields into a ticker?

If i modify the existing vmix-social-ticker-GT it has fixed width and heights within the text blocks, and this doesn't work for a 'crawl' type ticker, where i land up with lots of black space, or adpative size text which then gets too small to read.

I'm not well versed with XAML at all, but i assume it's possible to add 2 strings into a single field, but how one goes about creating those variable entries, i don't know.

Regards

With Vmix Social, it requires 2 text fields to push "name" and "message" to, via the Edit Mappings button in Social.

A ticker seems to only be able to accept 1 field. Ideally i'd need to create something along the following lines, but nothing i've tried has worked :
<textblock Name="TextBlock1" Text="Pushed from VmixSocial here" + Name="TextBlock2" Text="Pushed from VmixSocial here too" />

Grids don't seem to work in Vmix, at least they're size adaptable.

This is what i currently have working, a bit of a modification of the existing VmixGTSocialTicker file, but it's a fixed size box, and if the message is longer or shorter, i land up with a long gap between messages, or text too small to read...

Alternatively, being able to adapt the dimention size to the length of the text would also work.

<Ticker Name="T" Dimensions="1915,75,0" Location="0,925,0" FontFamily="Segoe UI" FontSize="26" FontWeight="Bold" VerticalAlign="Center" Speed="5" Type="Add">
<Ticker.Template>
<TextBlock Name="FromNameHolder" Text="FromName" FontFamily="Segoe UI" FontSize="32" FontWeight="Bold" VerticalAlign="Center" />
<Layer Name="ContentLayer" Dimensions="1680,75,0" Locked="False">
<Layer.Composition>
<Composition Width="1680" Height="75">
<TextBlock Name="FromName" Dimensions="312,75,0" Location="60,-10,0" Text="FromName" FontFamily="Segoe UI" FontSize="32" FontWeight="Bold" VerticalAlign="Center" AutoSize="Shrink">
</TextBlock>
<Image Name="FromPhoto" Dimensions="50,50,0" Location="5,6,0">
<Image.Bitmap>
<Bitmap Source="57cf4bb7-5362-47c9-a366-4c810df41d6a\source1.png" />
</Image.Bitmap>
</Image>
<TextBlock Name="Message" Location="380,-10,0" Text="Message" FontFamily="Segoe UI" FontSize="30" VerticalAlign="Center" > <!--Dimensions="1300,75,0" AutoSize="Shrink"-->
</TextBlock>
</Composition>
</Layer.Composition>
</Layer>
</Ticker.Template>
</Ticker>

Did you solve this issue, I'm having the same problem. I would like to resize the ticker box but I can't seem to find where to edit this. How did you use your script?
