description: Snippet to record a cuelist and insert the cue
remarks: of course fixtures need to be selected, values set etc. - this is only the record cuelist part

functions

affected properties

Code

<!-- select fixtures, set values etc. ... -->
 
<step>Playbacks.CueList.CreateCueList("Playbacks", 0)</step>
<step>Playbacks.Select.EditHandle("Location=Playbacks,1,0")</step>
<step>Playbacks.AppendOrInsertPlaybackStep(Playbacks.PlaybackEdit.Handle,1)</step>
<step>Playbacks.PlaybackEdit.Exit()</step>

Explanation

This explains the functional steps within the sequence. For all the other XML details please refer to Formats and syntax

  • Playbacks.CueList.CreateCueList(..) creates the cuelist at a specific location
  • Playbacks.Select.EditHandle(..) selects the just created cuelist to be edited - know that this sets the property Playbacks.PlaybackEdit.Handle which is required in the next step
  • Playbacks.AppendOrInsertPlaybackStep() appends/insert (the current programmer contents) as step into the cuelist
  • Playbacks.PlaybackEdit.Exit() exits the RecordCuelist state
