Dear customers,

we're happy to share the new Widget Designer 6.0.5 with you.

Widget Designer comes with added features such as FHPP Modbus support and improved scripting of such protocol. Tedious bugs such as missing/wrong frames on VGetAssetDuration scripts are fixed as well as possible glitches in timecode readouts from Pandoras Box.



///MODBUS

- added support for **FHPP** (*Festo Motor Controllers*)
- added `SetMany(<name/index>, <values>)` to set many values at once.
*Example:* `ModbusDevice.ModbusPatch.SetMany("MyElement", listVariable)`
- fixed `.Send()` and `.SendMany()` guarantee to set values in order the functions are called *per device*


///AIRSCAN

- added checkbox to properties **Enable GUI** to choose if touch points should be sent to the current page or not
- improved `WDAirscanConnect(<ip>)` - `ip` is now optional and the already provided IP will be used


///PANDORAS BOX

- added `ReconnectFaderBoardDevices()` (with Master and Backup only versions)
- added `ResetTcpDeviceConnection(<siteId>, <deviceId>)` (with Master and Backup only versions)
- improved `DeviceFadeParam(...)` (optimized for smooth fades)
- fixed `VGetAsset*(...)` family of scripts. Make sure to use PBProjectRefresh() to refresh media information whenever you changed PB Assets
- fixed `ResourceSetText(...)` now uses the correct text encoding


///NETWORK CONNECTIONS

- **TCP Multiclient Server** now correctly sends to all clients even when one or more clients disconnected
- fixed **TCP Connections Dialog** status label placement


///NODES

- fixed value display in dialogs for **Delta, Damping and Prediction Nodes**
- fixed **Pandoras Box Nodes** like *Timecode*, *Cue Remaining Time* or *Device Parameter* - no more random delays
- fixed **PbClipTime** - *siteId* and *deviceId* are saved and loaded properly


///WIDGETS

- improved **Fader** fade scripts optimized for smooth fades (*WDFadeToValue*, *WDFaderUp*, *WDFaderDown*, *...*)
- fixed **InputBox** when used with on screen keyboard - entered values are set in the input box
- fixed **ColorPicker** - clicks on the border of the color circle will no longer cause incorrect values
- fixed **TreeView** Refresh button will now ask Pandoras Box for updated media information


///PAGES
- **WD Free edition** explains license restrictions when loading a project that was created with a non-free version that published multiple pages


///SCRIPTING
- fixed `Project.Nodes` so that you won't see an error when there are composite nodes in the project



Please note:
Due to the updated environment, this application is only supported for 64bit windows operating systems.
