bar graph for audio level

StewartStewart Junior MemberPosts: 37
We are attempting to redesign our AMX fleet of touch panels to have a similiar look to the ******** ones now all over campus. I have a meeting today where i am to show what i have accomplished as of now ( TP design 3 plus access programming). I am sure I will be asked to design small volume bargraphs as they are in the ******** Tps. Probably also have to mute volume. Is this a huge deal ? Define connect level for bar graphs etc?

    nope, it works quite well. If you're using a G3 color panel with the latest firmware you must remember that there are only 21 faders available. (7 per device times 4 devices per panel.)

    What do the AMX TPs look like now? Keep in mind that Apples need to be compared to Apples and Oranges to Oranges. AXT-CA10's are compared to ST, STX1700C (current), CT4000. As with AMX most of these panels are not produced anymore. Modero's should be compared to the TPS and TPMC panels. If you are programming an AXT-CA10 comparing it to a TPS panel you are comparing Apples with Oranges.

    Many Clients compare ***** panels with older AMX Panels.

    Bar graphs on tp

    These are older tps
    AXT-MCP w/PB

    The code uses these snippets
    CREATE_LEVEL VOLUME,1,PROGRAM_LEVEL
    then a system call
    SYSTEM_CALL 'VOL1'(TP,56,57,0,VOLUME,1,2,0)
    I added in a define connect level
    The volume button does not "fill up" on tp
    i am missing something
    Do i have to do something like this:
    SEND_COMMAND TP,"'x',ITOA (NEWVOLUME)"
    Sorry for the spotty notes but I am learning as I go. Thanks!!!

    I'm not sure what you mean by "fill up". Is the BarGraph moving? I normally use DEFINE_CONNECT LEVEL (dvVOL,1,dvTP,1) this connects level one on the AXBVOL3 to Level 1 on the TP. There is not other coding needed. The system call needs to be below DEFINE_PROGRAM and it basically controlling Volume UP and DOWN. Button 56 is VOL up using channel 1 on the AXBVOL3 box and Button 57 is volume down using channel 2 on the same VOLUME device. The mute button has not been programmed.

    bargraph

    Bargraph not moving
    perhaps I screwed up the Tp design file and the colors are the same so I could not see the change?
    I put the define_connect level here:
    DEFINE_LATCHING
    DEFINE_COMBINE
    (MSP8,MSP8B)
    DEFINE_CONNECT_LEVEL
    (VOLUME,1,TP,1)


    Sytem call is here:
    DEFINE_PROGRAM
    SEND_LEVEL TP,1,PROGRAM_LEVEL
    SYSTEM_CALL 'SLD1' (SLIDE1,TP,44,45,46,47,48,0,0)

    SYSTEM_CALL 'VOL1'(TP,56,57,0,VOLUME,1,2,0)
    If I created a mute button/assigned a channel the system call would set the value to 0 and mute?
    Again Thanks for any input. I am off today but brought controller and tp home to test.

    Channels:

    Channel Function

    1 while channel is on, ramps volume channels 1 and 2 up (increase)
    2 while channel is on, ramps volume channels 1 and 2 down (decrease)
    3 while channel is on, volume channels 1 and 2 are muted (lowest
    volume), and when channel is turned off volume levels
    are restored to previous levels
    4 while channel is on, ramps volume channel 1 up
    5 while channel is on, ramps volume channel 1 down
    6 while channel is on, volume channel 1 is muted (lowest
    volume), and when channel is turned off volume level
    is restored
    7 while channel is on, ramps volume channel 2 up
    8 while channel is on, ramps volume channel 2 down
    9 while channel is on, volume channel 2 is muted (lowest
    volume), and when channel is turned off volume level
    is restored
    10 while channel is on, ramps volume channel 3 up
    11 while channel is on, ramps volume channel 3 down
    12 while channel is on, volume channel 3 is muted (lowest
    volume), and when channel is turned off volume level
    is restored

    From AMX_PI...

    SYSTEM_CALL 'VOL1'(TP,56,57,0,VOLUME,1,2,0) needs to be SYSTEM_CALL 'VOL1'(TP,56,57,58,VOLUME,1,2,3) This will give you toggle control of the muting. System calls are located in C:\Program Files\Common Files\AMXShare\SYCs. There you can see what exactly the SYC does. Of course you can use any button you want for muting. I just stuck 58 in there.

    Bargraph

    I am in Tp design and trying to assign the device number for tp( 128)
    in bargraph button properties I keep getting a message that states
    This panel only supports devices from 1-1?
    huh?
  • kbeattyAMXkbeattyAMX Junior Member Posts: 358
    Modify the panel properties. Its defaulted to 1 device with new projects with TPdesign3.
