Topic: Custom Button Help plz
Hi, Fam!

I would like to have a custom button that toggles the sampler output between Decks 3 and 4.

Any helpful soul out there?

TIA

Hi there!

Is it also possible to control the color of (all of the) other pad-buttons from the one being pressed?
Can't find the vars or params to reach out over the hedge...

Thx in advance

pad pages sure, custom buttons no, what did you specifically have in mind?

Was making the 'blackout' button on the dmx page do what it is supposed to do: make the lights go off. Would have been nice to darken the pads in the process.

Okay, here I am with another plea: Now that I have basically all my custom buttons ready, I don´t want to use the mouse to get the "Custom Button" pad page, but do it from the controller.

Thought to dedicate a button I never use (Bleep on my NVII controller) to either toggle between the current selected pad page and the custom button pad page, or, in lieu of that, to cycle through the pad pages.

Something like that possible?

Thanks in advance again!

@rattler
pad_page +1
or
pad_page "YOURPADNAME1" ? pad_page "YOURPADNAME2" : pad_page "YOURPADNAME1"

OK that helps (I understand the upper one to be for cycling through?).

But, any idea how to make it a toggle , i.e. to return to the before selected pad_page (whatever it was that was active) on next press? is there a way to get the current active pad_page name?

Well I've tried everything I could but there looks like these a script bug in saving the pad_page name to a variable.

might have to wait on a dev to confirm

Thanks for the effort, the case where I would need to go back to the exact pad page (because I don´t have it on the controller) occurs only once in a gig, no prob using the mouse then. All the rest I have enough pad pages to select directly from the ocntroller to 99% have the last one active avaliable..

What you sent me before will do.

Just a precision: trying the "custom_button_name hack"
deck 2 get_text ` pad_page` & param_cast text & custom_button_name 8 & set myvar `custom_button_name 8 & param_cast text`

from a pad in deck 1or 3 or 4 is working fine (variable is set correctly) (deck2 will need the pad_page with the script)

but from a custom_button the same script does not work

Why that?
