Datalinq in Visual logic

  • 1.  Datalinq in Visual logic

    Posted 03-06-2024 10:54

    We have Expression Tessera.  I'm trying to get a value from a Datalinq to the Horizontal Position of an object in Visual Logic.  I added the datalinq node, set the Value (and when I do it shows the right value), then dragged an arrow to the y position block for the object.   But for some reason it won't modify it.   The data for the Datalinq is coming from a dashboard.  The parameters in the Dashboard are set to integer.  I've tried setting the parameter for String, Integer (4), Integer (32), Floating.  the results were the same.

    I'm looking for what to try next.

    Personally, I would connect your data to text boxes and then connect the text box to the positions you want. 

    That way you have a visual way to see the data coming in a changing and it makes it much easier to troubleshoot.

    Thanks for the Replies.  I thought that too and tried it.  I've even typed a number into a text box and then linked that text to position, trying to remove the datalinq portion.  Didn't work.  It's like Visual logic doesn't recognize that it's number and ignores it.

    I control the position of stuff all the time with visual logic, in pretty much every template I make so it cannot be that. 

    Here's something I am making as I type this just in case this helps.

    It did not do anything different.  It's like Visual Logic doesn't realize the text is a number and just ignores it for Position

    I have a new screen shot.

    Are you setting it some other way that might be fighting it because I use this method all the time.

    Thank you for all of the effort.  I just take a text and I drag it to the position but it just doesn't change.

    It seems like I'm doing the same thing.  I tried publishing and unpublishing the objects.

    Something odd is going on there, have you tried making a new scene and testing?

    In both screenshots the "enabled" checkbox at the bottom appears empty…

    Jesus H Christ     I feel like an idiot.

    That did it.  I don't know how I kept missing it.
