    Doug,

    What happened to the Khaki touch panel template? It was one of my favorites.

    Any way to get it back?

    Cool!

    Thanks Doug (and AMX) for the update. I've yet to really dive into it, but did also notice that the Khaki theme was gone too. Not a big deal to me, but it did make me wonder what happened to it. I also noticed that when updating it removed a "custom" device I added through modifying the XML. No big deal I guess, I can add it later if I need.

    Now, where's our NS2 update? ;)

    Add relay devices in Visual Architect 1.3

    Hi,

    i need add to relay devices in the new version like ecran. It can possible?

    Thanks
  • Khaki Templates

    Yes, we like the Khaki templates too! It was necessary to focus on one template and Highlights was chosen. Now that one template is complete, we can add more.
  • Adding Relay Devices in VA

    You may easily control a device that is actuated by relays using VA's CodeBuilder. Under any button push, a NetLinx relay may be opened or closed. If you have a device with Relay outputs that has a serial, IP, or IR interface, you may add a new device using IR Capture or Control Strings Definition. If this is not what you are trying to do, please explain.
    Thanks!

    I've had it once or twice in previous versions (I don't really use VA, I just poke around with it sometimes to see if it has got to the point where it is useful to me yet). I have been able to resolve it by saving everything, restarting the computer, then re-compiling immediately without making any project changes.

    Dear
    Even numerous restart of my pc. Still no avail.
    I can't use this at all esp when compiling to system code.
    Whereas to generate touch panel TP4 file, another problem is requested to close the VA application.
    The software seems working fine but when it comes to compile it to TP4 or axs file. It generate the problem.
  • VA Error

    Based on the information that you supplied, I have created a successful project. In order to troubleshoot the problem, more information is necessary like: What is the error you received? What is the current version of VA that you have installed? (should be 1.3.0.169)
    A few tips to insure that you can compile:
    1) Did you assign an IP address to the master under NI-2100 Properties?
    2) Did you create navigation to the Polycom in the MVP-7500 Tab?
    It may be quicker if you contact AMX Tech Support but it would be nice to have the results posted for others on the forum. Please let me know how I can help.

    alvinyow,

    we've been working quite a lot with VA lately - mostly successful. However, once or twice we've also came across a similar error situation as you described in your post.

    What I would do is to check the VA log files ("CodeGen.log" and "compileroutput.txt" usually in the base directory of your project). Furthermore make sure that you haven't opened one of the files that are to be generated in TP4 or NS2 (to be sure close these applications prior to generating the code). Did you also try to just generate but not transfer the files? What template did you use? Did you change the template or is it a stock AMX one? In case you want to change the template be careful with deleting pages or buttons that are already used in the project (changing or adding elements is usually no problem).

    In our case we had to delete one of the "feature pages" and re-add it to solve the problem. This was due to a change in the template.
