Forum: VirtualDJ Skins
Topic: Changing effects beat length with a button.
I am selecting/activating an effect with a button and have supplied two rotary sliders to adjust params 1 and 2. I would like to display the beat setting (length - slider 2 usually) on the skin, and provide two other buttons to adjust the BEAT length of the effect.
The icing on the cake would be to display the length in milliseconds, but separately dispay and adjust the BEAT as above...
This is the final piece of the skin before I can submit version 0.99 for approval! :-)

some Effects do have, but its not a standard, so the "Beats" or "Length" could be Parameter 1, Parameter 2 etc.

I would like the user to see the current 'beat' repeat setting (param 2) and modify it realtime using buttons to jump between different 'loop' lengths.
I'm sure the display part is possible with the right command, but I'm not convinced the repeat interval can be set (in beats) very easily....

Ok i ll give my best shot, even though i think you are trying to follow a path that wont lead you anywhere since the Effects of VirtualDJ dont follow any standards unfortunately.
E.g. the Echo Effect. You need to provide buttons instead of a slider to adjust the Length Parameter Nr.2. The specific parameter gets values from 1/64 to 8 beats, so you need actions for your +/- buttons like ... effect_slider 2 +/-10% , (since it has 11 different values)
The text you need to show on your skin is <text action="get_effect_slider_text 2" />

The buttons up n down worked great using: action="effect 'echo' slider 2 +/- 10%
