Simple concept, brick wall implementation.

Been working on this for a few days, and have had no results. On a CV12, I have 4 rows of camera presets for a VC system. I would like users to press a button used to label to row of presets, enter a name, and have that name populate the button. I understand all the tools to do what I want, text entry, variable text to buttons, etc, but cannot get them to all work together that way I want. If there is a way to do this in the panel, and not include controller programing, that would be ideal, but making it work is the priority.

Thanks

    Definitely not going to be able to do it on the panel itself. Some key concepts in code is going to be:

    Pull up the keyboard on the TP
    Populate the variable that already exists
    Have the user enter a new name from that keyboard
    Save that to a variable and/or text file
    Update the name on the TP.

    Do each step one at a time and Im sure you can knock it out of the park.

    Guess I have forgotten more that I realize. Anyone have a chunk of code similar to what I am trying to do?

    Meh, you don't need it. It's pretty straight-forward level 1 or 2 programming. just grab the TP programming manual off the AMX tech site and you'll be just fine. Every command you'll need is easily sent to the panel via Control A Device. As suggested, you can just manually send the commands, test, then write your code. Easy Peasy.
