It would be great if either... A) the virtual name had a specific prefix identifying the parent ... PTZ1, PTZ2 instead of all being just PTZ or B) have a separate field giving the parent input's name for each virtual input in the API.

My Use case

I have two ptz cameras with 13 presets each. I use scripts and a streamdeck to select each preset. Currently I check each preset when it is selected to ensure the parent camera is not represented in the Program out so users don't see the camera move... preventing operator error. I have the presets for each camera in a range of inputs so I hardcode this range of numbers representing each camera. I have another program that emulates the playlist functions but adds these same checks so users are not seeing the camera move. Both of these functions are working I just worry about when I leave and someone has to maintain it and I have hard-coded input numbers into the scripts.

It would be great if I just had to check a field for each preset to know if the parent camera was represented in the program out rather than have to check a range of numbers and then those numbers could change if inputs are added.

That would be really useful for me, too!
