Hi, I need to set more different colour change of Indicator, Actually there is is only small difference in intensity, not too significant. How I can set the different colour of active indicator?

Thanks. M.

Hi,

Page 51 and 51 of the (English) Kiosc manual explains all the feedback options for the Indicator.

In short, it can be toggled on and off using a bool. This will visually make it brighter or less bright, much like a LED light.
By sending a colour via either an OSC colour message or hex colour via UDP (my_indicator=#FF00FF) you can change the colour.

Greetings,
Bootsy

I saw it there, but Im not clear what exact string I should put into tag line. It should show the state of pb01 on LPU. Please send me an example. Actually I type /pb01/ac.

Thanks. Michal.

Hi Michal,

Are you using LPU-1 or LPU-2? Only the LPU-2 has support for network control and feedback. It also has a webinterface, including a monitor page. You can see any commands that are send and received there.

For OSC the /pb01/ac should work, as long as all the network settings are setup correctly. (check the incoming port on Kiosc)
After saving the showfile to Kiosc, make sure that you are not running KioscEditor when testing feedback, especially not on the same machine as Kiosc. Close everything, then open Kiosc. Then make sure you send an API command to the LPU using Kiosc. (You can send the "hello" command) so the LPU knows where to send the feedback. Now start a playback that was previously not active, and the indicator should light up. (As previously mentioned, look at the monitor page of the LPU-2 to see if and what it sends)

For UDP, it is pretty much the same. Do note that the commands are a bit different though, it would be "pb01/ac" instead of "/pb01/ac"

Greetings,
Bootsy

All you describe is working me fine. But my question is, how to change the light up colour. Default colour (brightness) change is not enought noticeable. I mean like this: - no playback indicator is grey colour, active playback turn indicator to red colour.

Hi Miky,
Unfortunately that is not part of the LPU-2 API. I can add it to the wishlist though.

If the change in brightness is not big enough, I recommend using a button element instead of an indicator. Give it a try, the difference is much more visible.

Hello,

Is there some news regarding custom colours of indicators?

Another issue I need to solve. We controll LPU-2 via OSC from 6pcs B-stations, which are located in 6 rooms (studios), simultaneously we controll the same LPU-2 from Kiosc Touch located at controll room. Kiosc touch has 6 pages, for every studio, so when the operator need to change lighting preset in studio 4, he have to switch kiosc touch to page "Studio 4" and there is 6 buttons+indicators for 6 presets. He press preset 3 and LPU-2 activate this preset, also B-station button 3 is backlighted. Thats all oK. But when Sombody in studio 1 change the preset on B-station locally, then operator at controll room after he jump to page "Studio 1" is not able to recognise what preset is active, because indicator is not refreshed. Only on kiosc´s active page is indicator working..

What to do to refresh indicator status after page change?

Thanks for advice, attached is kiosc´s config file

Michal

hi,

About the indicators color, you can send a  hex color code to an indicator and this will change the color of it.  So you can have a off red indicator that turn green when it's on. You just need to add the color OSC message task to the action in the Bstation.

In the last firmware version, the KIOSC touch  updates the status of all elements even if they are in a page that is not active. You can update the Kiosc Touch firmware to 1,15.12 using the vmanager software.

You can also use the page tag to know which page is displayed on kiosc. The page tag will be send each time the page is displayed. You can also use this tag to change the page displayed on the Kiosc touch.

I hope this will help you,
enjoy ;)

Thanks for such information, Finally, before your answer I did rebuild the kiosc touch´s layout so now all studios are on one page..

Even after fw update, when kiosc is just rebooted, it didnt show any changes on indicators (made by B-station)  until I press any button on kiosc. Then all seems to be working correctly (buttons and indicators).

I am glad to know that everything is working fine.
To get all the feedback values when you restart the kiosc app, you need to add a tag to the first page, this tag will be sent when Kiosc will start.
This way you can use this message to trigger a refresh of all the feedbacks informations from the B-station.
I hope this will help you,
Enjoy ;)

See the included screen shot,
 1- select the first page of your layout
 2- set an OSC, UDP or TCP tag

This tag will be sent everytime the page is displayed by the Kiosc touch, and also when it starts.
Sending this tag to the Kiosc Touch with  a "on" value will also able to y ou to display the desired page.
