I have been programming a show with a timecore, iocore and some brightsign players.
I have been able to program the brightsign with udp messages without a problem,
Now I want the timecore to trigger a action (from an actionlist) on the iocore and i don’t seem to get it working. The iocore recieves the osc comands ( i can see that in the monitor page) but i must have the comand wrong as the action wont run.

On the showcontrol page from the iocore i have an action list called GPO. The first action on that list is named “floor up on” (and turns the first GPO on)
I don’t realy know what I have to progarm on the timecore to trigger this action on the iocore.

It must be simple but I don’t see it.
Could you help me out on this?

Ok, got it to work in the showcontrol.

But i think there should be a way to do it in the API. Just don´t know the right string?

Thanks Gilles

Hello Gillekes,

You can use the API of the IoCore2 from TimeCore to control a GPO.

On the show control page of TimeCore.
Add a task OSC -> Send Bool -> Set.
With param 1 set to /core/gpo/<gpo pin index> for example "/core/gpo/1".
Set  param 2 to On or Off.

Also I would like to inform you of the following.
In show control we use the actionlist and actions to indicate the trigger. When something should happen. For example when an OSC messages is received. Or when a specific timecode passes.
The task are used to say what should happen. For example enable a GPO.

Best regards,
