Hi, nice to see an Artnet project here.
What does it do? Nothing happens, if i press any buttons. I cannot see any artnet activity, if its enabled.

This plugin is a rewritten version of experimental VDJArtnet by Jonathan Tanner & bluescreen25
It is almost script & feel compatible with VDJartnet experimental one
Most "correct" scripts may work (there are few, many of existing ones are buggy)
Script configuration is done from an external tool.
Editing script and channels does not need VDJ, but plugin can call it for quick fixes

in a way to work you need to initially specify :
- take a look at About to know the name of the config file (not needed but is deck + bus dependant)
- open config
- set ArtNet address and port universe ...
- script for at least one channel
- save
- refresh the settings
- select universe
- activate the plugin

it is not trivial config

What it does:

All 512 DMX channels will call a vdj script (if any) to get a return value (see later, standard being range 0..255)
only chanels between first one with a script and last one with a script are raw transmitted by ArtNetDMX

example: say you want to control light from fixture channel 1 DMX address 1 with VDJ Track level
Open config editor
Line 1 chanel 1 name the script and set the script
VolumeLevel intensity audible | is_audible ? get_level & param_multiply 255 & set $VDJartnetSend : set $VDJartnetSend 0

many infos on QLC+ forum (initial origin of the plugin)
some in VDJ Forum too

config script and examples are in <VDJFOLDER>\Plugins[64]\DMXArtNetNtxData

@VDJ Monty
Even well configured and working the plugin will only send data when sending data is required
- one channel value changed
- keepalive timeout reached

it also use the "partial" mode sending only to block of used chanels

some old (2 years) original discutions with infos:
