Is there a way to get status of an input/overlay etc via TCP API?

I'm writing just macros script and I can successfully send commands but I do not understand how to receive/get status of current Active input,Preview input etc.

Thank you

I've figured it out so here is a snippet if someone needs it:
Code:

function GetValue(string, num)
    if string == "active" then
       RawCommsNetSendString( Vmix, "XMLTEXT vmix/" .. "active" .. "\r\n")
    elseif string == "preview" then
       RawCommsNetSendString( Vmix, "XMLTEXT vmix/" .. "preview" .. "\r\n")
    elseif string == "overlay" then
       RawCommsNetSendString( Vmix, "XMLTEXT vmix/" .. "overlays/overlay[" .. num .. "]" .. "\r\n")
    --elseif stringe == "" then
    -- RawCommsNetSendString( Vmix, "XMLTEXT vmix/" .. "" .. "\r\n")
    end
    Sleep(10) -- wait 10ms before grabbing data
    receive = RawCommsNetGetIncomingPacketCount( Vmix );
    data = RawCommsNetGetInPacketAsString( Vmix, receive )
    --VSLog( data )
    data = data:sub(12) -- TRIM XLMTEXT OK
    VSLog(string .. " " .. data)
    return data
end
