With the Configuration dialog WD version 6.1.1 introduces a new way of handling device communication and triggering.
This enables you to set and retrieve values from devices such as Phidgets or Christie Terra, without the necessity to manually implement ways of interfacing with them.
Actions and parameter changes of those devices can be monitored with an Event Listener and used as triggers for scripts.
Over time, more and more devices will be added to the Configuration dialog and allow the user to easily access them in a uniform and highly automated process.
New devices or Event Listeners are added as WD objects and full functionality is provided for scripting via Object and Member Notation.
For managing your Devices and Event Listeners, open the Configuration dialog via Devices > Configuration. If you created them already, you can also directly click on one in the Devices menu (e.g. Devices > Christie > Terra > Christie_Terra1) as this opens the chosen device in the Configuration dialog. The licensed Widget Designer supports all listed devices whilst the Free edition includes only some of them.
In the dialog itself, you can configure existing devices, delete them or create new ones.
When you select one of the existing Devices or Listeners in the list, the respective editable properties are displayed.
Currently, you can configure the following devices. They are listed when you select the "All" or "Devices" tab in the Configuration dialog:
