Hello all,
I am new to vMix and might be missing something obvious. I built an application that uses the vMix API to update a scoreboard title. This title has game clock, scores, quarter and down and yards to go (American Football). Everything works great when the title is in both the preview and live windows, but as soon as I put something else in the preview window the title stops updating on the live screen.


This is an example call my application makes to change the clock:
http://localhost:8088/API/?Function=SetText&InputTitle=CustomScoreboard.gtzip&SelectedName=Clock.Text&Value=7:33

and to change the score looks like this:
http://localhost:8088/API/?Function=SetText&InputTitle=CustomScoreboard.gtzip&SelectedName=HomeScore.Text&Value=27

Why does the title stop updating when it's not in the preview window?

Thank you for any help with this!

InputTitle is not a valid parameter in the url. It should be Input with the value of the input UUID, number or name.

Thank you so much! This fixed it.

I guess I should have RTFM before just using someone else's example of updating a title.
