How to permanently display parameter value in a Label widget


#1

If you need to display a parameter value permanently and possibly using larger font - you can use the Label widget and for its caption include this special token “[value]”. This will then automatically get replaced by the parameter value that the widget is associated with.

For example - if you want to see the progress of a backing track play position - you could type the following into your Label widget

“Current position: [value]”

Assign this label to the Audio File Player’s current position parameter and this label will now show something like

“Current position: 00:00:00” and update itself as the file is being played back.

NOTE: This option works only in Gig Performer 1.8.2 or later.

Is the value sent out via osc?


#3

I haven’t actually tried it but based on the way the mechanism is implemented, the value is determined before the OSC message is created so it should actually work just fine.


#4

Doesnʻt work. It just sends the text “[value]” not the actual value like “6.5dB”

Bummer — (and a surprise) — I’ve added this to our tracking system - sorry for the inconvenience

i am assuming that you append “Name” to the end of the text widget. I named the widget “Level1” so I used “Level1Name” for the text object in Lemur. I got nothing with just “Level1.”
