The PB Device Text Parameter input node provides feedback values for text layer parameters from a Pandoras Box Master and Backup System for further processing.

The node can be found under Nodes > Input Nodes > Pandoras Box > Device Text Parameter

wd_nodes_input_device-text-parameter

Node Properties

Site ID:
Enter the Site ID from which you want to get feedback values.

Device ID:
Enter the Device ID from which you want to get feedback values.

Parameter:
Choose the text parameter you want to monitor from the drop-down. Currently, only Notch Layers provide text values.

Example:
To route the current value of the parameter "Name" (in the "Notch" group under "Displays") of layer 3 of Site 1 to another node, enter "1" as SiteID, "3" as DeviceID and choose "Notch|Displays|Name" from the drop-down list or enter it as a value.

The PB Master and Backup Connection can be set up in the PB Network Configuration.

Node control

With Widget Designer version 6, all nodes support so called node commands. Node commands access functions (i.e methods) from a node and / or set a parameter (i.e. property).

Enter "node", followed by the according ID and a dot and a list will pop up showing all available commands for the node. For instance, Node1.TintColor.SetRGB(125,0,255), colors the node in purple.
In addition, the node properties with a parameter ID (the small superscript number) can be edited via the command Node1.SetParam(ID,new Value) or WDNodeSetParam(NodeID,ParamID,Value).

Node output values

The Node generates the following output:

 

- Value

- Backup Value
