^BMF button command on G5 panel
I'm seeing some confusing behaviour with this command on a G5 panel (MXT-1001; v1.7.30)
For years I have sent the following command to G4 panels:
(for buttons with an address code in the range 721...780, hide the button (%SW0) and turn the text color for the OFF state to 'Grey4')
On a G5 panel this does not work, no buttons are hidden.
If I change the color name to the equivalent color number (78) it does work:
But this has side effects: sending a command afterwards to unhide the button, does not work anymore:
"'^SHO-721.780,1'" Does nothing, no buttons are 'unhidden'.
If I send the the ^BMF command with the color number again, but now to unhide the button:
This also doesn't work, no buttons are 'unhidden'
If I use the same command with the color name, it DOES work, the buttons are 'unhidden':
for now i've split up the ^BMF command into ^BCT and ^SHO commands and this works as expected.
I can't find anything in the PI2 documentation that shows that these commands would behave different on a G4 or a G5 panel; as far as I can tell, the descriptions for both panel types are the same.
