Widget Designer 6.5.6

Postby Thomas Mrozek » Tue Aug 30, 2022 2:38 pm

Dear customers.

We're happy to share Widget Designer 6.5.6 with you.
https://www.christiepandorasbox.com/sup ... 6/file-408
This version has a ton of bug fixes, improvements, and some new features with it.

One feature is the Projector Device which is meant to address projectors and has convenient monitoring and scripting features including a network discovery feature for easy access. Along with this feature comes a new node, the “projector” node to easily connect incoming values to widgets.

Further on, we added methods for the “HTTP Request” command to have more options to handle external HTML.

We included the “PB Volume Control” as a fader option and introduced the “WDPing” Script.

The Listview, Listview scripting, and many more also got some attention.

Please find the complete changelog below.
