    I'm working with XPression and DashBoard and I've been trying to set up a Desktop Preview on my computer with DashBoard, I've added the Desktop Preview to Xpression and it shows it's "Active" on there but nothing comes up on DashBoard, only a black screen saying "Channel 1".
    I'm not sure if the problem is on XPression or DashBoard. Does anyone know how to fix that?

    Thank you!

    Have you assigned the Desktop Preview Server framebuffer as your 'Up Next Preview' output framebuffer?

    Hi Garner!

    Thank you for helping me, it actually works! I was able to create the Desktop Preview and now it's running.
    I've been facing another issue and I was hoping you could help me, so I actually have two Sequencers and a KeyPad on my custom panel and I've been wanting to connect them with the Desktop Preview. At the moment the Desktop Preview only responds to those "UP" and "DOWN" arrows I created, is there a way I could connect the Desktop Preview with the Sequencers and the KeyPad so it always shows me what's on Preview? 
    P.S. The Desktop Preview works directly from the XPression too.

    Thank you for your time!

    Hi Bruna,
    Unfortunately the DashboardAPI interface (the two modules at the top of your screenshot) do not move the focus bar inside the XPression Sequencer - so its not possible for it to trigger the up next preview generation.

    Hi Garner, 

    I understand, the Desktop Preview Client is already helping me a lot.
    I believe I have everything settled now. My panel is working great. 

    Thank you so much and have a nice day!
