Videohub Event Messages

Hi,

I'm planning to write an Just Macros script to connect a cleanswitch videohub to an XKeys panel. I would like the XKeys lights to show the route states at all times so that if a route is made on the front of the videohub unit the XKeys lights update.

I know that I could make a loop to check the cross points every second or so but it would be better to get an Just Macros Event message, is this implemented for Videohub, in either the free or the pro version? Any example scripts?

Thanks,

Peter.

With a bit experience you can

With a bit experience you can create your own monitoring script which uses commands like VHGetOutputSource() to read sources of each output. You use that to trigger backlights of the xkeys panel. 

More info needed to give some more help. What setup you exactly want?

Hi, I'm happy that I can

Hi,

I'm happy that I can write a script to re-check the crosspoints every frame but it seems like a lot of checking. They probably won't change that often and it's a 24/7 system.

I was looking for a more effecieint way using JustMacros event messages.
