Hows about being able to read levels from FX with HC.SearchFixtureProperties. Or some other solution. I cant seem to get any feedback form them in external progs.

You are correct. This needs to be added.

Would it be possible to change the way the scripts-list looks, so it is less intimidating for the novice user and therefore more encouraging to do anything with it, as the tools are very powerful.

Right now the Look fade function is presented like this:

Code: Select all

HC.LookFade('page',looknumber,value[,seconds])
I would propose the following:
In the list it looks like this:
  • Look Fade
If you hover over with the mouse, you see:
  • HC.LookFade('page',looknumber,value[,seconds])
If you insert it you see:
  • HC.LookFade('SubPage 1',1,100,1)
This way you know what you are going to get if you insert it (in normal language), you get a working example in your script, and you get some help if you want to change it (via the tooltip). I think it is very important for somebody to see what works, because otherwise it is a very long way to learn!
This is especially true for script lines with a lot of options like [ ] or | .
Also the errormessages could be clearer. "," expected near "]", or something like that, isn't very helpful!

One idea may be to list it simple in the list as you suggested but then insert this:
-- HC.LookFade('page',looknumber,value[,seconds])
HC.LookFade('SubPage 1',1,100,1)

The -- is obviously a comment, but then you have it right there to know what the three 1's mean in the command without having to hover over the tooltip (which disappears in 5 seconds). Would this clutter up the editor too much?

The Error messages do show you the line number and the line number of your cursor is shown at the top of the edit window. Those are standard errors coming from the Lua interrupter (i.e., they're not ours).

Any idea to program this with a macro??


Thanks,
