Hi,

I have a Title input with about 100 presets.
I want to create a shortcut, that moves each time to the next preset. That works fine. However, I want to detect that, if a preset contains "(N)", that preset shouldn't be selected, but instead, it should jump to the next preset (I'll use that to, in that case, move to the next slide on another input).
That detection seems to fail. Instead of moving to the next preset, it does display the "(N)", and on the next time I press the shortcut, it skips the next preset. I've been programming for a very long time (clearly not in vmix :-)), but this one puzzles me.

So in this code, I basically move to the next preset (based on the content on DynamicValue1. If it's (N), then I skip one further.

Code:
Dim VmixXML as new system.xml.xmldocument
Dim Dynamic1Val as Integer= 1

VmixXML.loadxml(API.XML)
dim title_text as string
Dim title_input_no as integer = 2

dim Dynamic1Node As XmlNode = VmixXML.selectSingleNode("/vmix/dynamic/value1")
Dynamic1Val = Dynamic1Node.InnerText
Dynamic1Val+=1 
API.Function("SetDynamicValue1", Value:=Dynamic1Val)
API.Function("SelectTitlePreset",Input:="Subtitles",Value:=Dynamic1Val)

title_text=""
title_text = (VmixXML.SelectSingleNode("//inputs//input[" & title_input_no & "]//text[1]").InnerText)

if title_text="(N)" then
    Dynamic1Val+=1 
    API.Function("SetDynamicValue1", Value:=Dynamic1Val)
    API.Function("SelectTitlePreset",Input:="Subtitles",Value:=Dynamic1Val)
end if


I'm overlooking something... :-). Any ideas ?

Might be easier/more efficient to work with datasources instead of presets especially with that many data rows :-)

before being abe to evaluate the data has to go to the title first ( selected )
an easier way to check on content of a data field ( textblock) is using the scripting function = Input.Find("Titlename").Text("TextBlockName.Text") as such no neeed to read the API XML
When using a data source instead just select the next row . No need for using Dynamic values

Personally i prefer to have textfields that have to be avaluated in a hidden textblock
thanks 1 user thanked doggy for this useful post.

using input.find magically solved my issue, thanks a lot, it was driving my crazy !
Now that it works, I will try it to switch to a datasource, as you suggested, I've indeed noticed that using a large list of presets considerably slows things down.

Thanks a lot !!

And suddenly, life became much more simpler :-)

Code:
API.Function("DataSourceNextRow",Value:="Speech1,Sheet1")

dim title_text as string
title_text=Input.Find("TitleTest").Text("Headline.Text")

if title_text="(N)" then
    API.Function("DataSourceNextRow",Value:="Speech1,Sheet1")
    API.Function("NextItem",Input:="Slides1")

end if

Thanks again for your help !

    API.Function("DataSourceNextRow",Value:="Speech1,Sheet1")
    API.Function("NextItem",Input:="Slides1")
end if
