this used to work, but it stopped…i don’t know what happened, it stopped working several months ago and i haven’t had the chance to look at it until now.
i want Lemur to show my custom widget captions under their custom buttons. now all i get is a “-” in the labels under the buttons on my iPad, where it says “Name” in the template.
so how do i tell Lemur that i want it to display the custom caption for my widget in the text object?
there’s a great deal here that i don’t understand, about OSC, Lemur, scripting, etc…this is all copied and modified from the original GP Lemur template, altered to resemble my Roland FC-300 foot controller.
i’m on GP3 now (but the names disappeared while still on GP2). the functionality is still there (buttons display, faders move), it’s just the labels that are not working.
i do have an issue with polarity of buttons. in some rackspaces switches need to display the opposite of their state so that the normal state of a plugin is on but its button shows “off.” i can get this to work in GP just fine of course, but it would be nice to be able to send an inverse value to Lemur in some way. there’s a workaround by creating another button with no function except to send its state to Lemur. so, not a huge priority, but maybe something for the future…
@keyman, thanks for your help - at the moment this is beyond my scripting capability! @dhj, your help is slightly less beyond my understanding of scripting and lemur, so i might be able to make something of it. these boxes used to show the text without any scripting required, too bad for me that this changed…but rest assured, GP works great for me anyway.
OK - turns out the problem was that Tony had created his own template using the original template we created for GP2. In GP3, the template was modified significantly and the messages sent out from Gig Performer are slightly different, to take advantage of Lemur scripting capability. So if you’re using GP3 and want to create your own Lemur template, you need to refer to the new one we created rather than using the older version.
