Xpression Crawl Glitch in Logo

  • 1.  Xpression Crawl Glitch in Logo

    Posted 04-15-2024 13:11

    Hi,

    I created a crawl in xpression. i have the text datalinq to a microsoft exel sheet. i'm using the N method. Also i have in each scene a visual logic which is...if text 1 is empty no logo visible. 

    Everything works fine but when i don't have any text in text 1 for my first scene and i play the scene i get a glitch . i see my logo appear then disappear as the crawl reads the 2nd scene. any ideas? thank you.

    Use an onOnline script to hide the logo instead of visual logic. 

    dim text as xpTextObject
    dim logo as xpBaseObject
     
    self.GetObjectByName("Text1", text)
    self.GetObjectByName("Logo1", logo)
     
    if text.Text = ""
    logo.Visible = false
    else
    logo.Visible = true
    end if

    Do I type this in its own line in the script editor?

    i typed it in as you wrote it and nothing. i typed it in Online.i still get the glitch of the logo. i think our xpression is having issues. it works well sometimes then goes bad playing the glitch. it never did that before. i did another exel sheet thinking maybe the old one was corrupt and it worked fine then started glicthing again.

    If you haven't already, could you try, in the Scene Manager, to turn off that logo object (the "eyeball") ?  That way it only is made visible once, when the script (or your previous visual logic) runs.

    Do you know how to script and debug and use debug monitor?

    Because you need to take the example script I gave you and adjust it for your scene, like what are your scene objects called and things like that.
