    Is there any documentation out there explaining how to write commands from Newsticker/LOGIC to Xpression?

    I am using a script that works for an old scene and customized it to work with a new scene. The commands being sent do not match up with RossTalk documentation.

    Right now the main problem I am having is calling my scene. I have changed it to my takeID but the old scene still keeps getting called up.

    Command in LOGIC:

    W\[% storageloc %]\[% takeID %]\[% data %]\[% data %]\[% data %]\[% data %]\[% data %]\[% data %]\\[% CRLF %]

    Supposedly that is getting written to a buffer. Then, to run the scene:

    X\READ\[% storageloc %]\1\[% ASCII(248) %]\\[% CRLF %]

    READ is in the Ross Talk docs, but no arguments are mentioned.

    Any documentation out there at all?

    Datalinq is not being used. It is Newsticker talking to Xpression.

    Closest to any documentation is from 2012:

    So I found the problem, it was my fault.

    The above lines were genericized from my code which I read over and over again.

    One of my commands ended with

    [% data %]\[% CRLF %]

    but needs to end as

    [% data %]\\[% CRLF %]

    The  commands need to end with TWO backslashes and Carriage-Return-Linefeed

    Working now. Hope y'all can learn from my mistakes.

    Think of making a variable EOC - End of Command

    [% EOC = "\\\\" _ CRLF %]

    Then just use as

    [% EOC %]

    Would still like documentation of commands for this.

    [% EOC %]  works!

    Just for clarity Newsticker uses CII to control XPression, not RossTalk. Attached is the CII documentation for XPression. Happy to answer any questions about how CII works with XPression. 

    Its ok for the Ross user community to discuss Newsticker intergration and exchange information, but if support is required please reach out to Newsticker. Ross support and product staff do not have details about Newsticker configurations.
