i would love to have a switch object in magicsheet.
What do i use it for?
our Worklight is a switch. As well as our direct power for some fixed switchboxes.
We do have a seperate Computer with a program on it, but having it on my desk would be nice.
And there are sure more options i can't think of right now.
What should it do?
Most likely a switch object will be assigned to a NonDim. So the common Targets(Channel/Address) are totaly ok.
On-State color, Off-state Color: the on and off state should be indicated with different colors of my choise.
Anything else? No, that's it.
I know that right now there are a couple of workarounds to do this. But why always work around if it could be a upcomming feature.
thank you in advance
your magic sheet would have two objects: one is a button, target=sub the other is a button target=address next to it. the adress button should be set to green an link to intensity
put the channels you…
So, a channel with a on/off curve on a button that take intensity to show if it's on or off? You can make that today.
Sorry jolsson i missread your post.
Sure you can do it.
But can one button have:
- a red color while the connected channel is @0
- next, if i klick on that button the channel will go @full
- and the button will switch it's color to green
Can you do this without alter the fixture and/or use some other stuff working in the background?
I think no, and that is what i'm looking for and try to bring in as a feature request.
I understand. No you will probably go gray to green or so.
What I tried is a way that can do it now, witout the need of changing alot of code. EOS can often solve what you need. But question is how many steps do you need to take.
What is your way of doing it right now?
put the channels you want to switch on a sub, set the sub timing to hold.
to be safe but a transparent rectangle on top of the address button so you can't select it by mistake
Am I wrong or could you still select this if you dragged a selection box over the area where the address button is? The selection box selects all objects within its boundaries, even ones that you wouldn't normally be able to click directly on because they're shielded by something above them.
that's currently correct, but there might be a change soon
