Master Bypass Button



  • I have several panels in my UI containing modules. Each panel has a bypass button, and I also have a master bypass button to switch them all off. However, this will also switch them all back on again - which is not what my users want.

    Ideally the master bypass button would 'remember' which modules were in bypass and reset those modules into bypass then switched back on.

    Can I store the state of the bypass buttons when using the master button and get it tow work? (and how?! lol)

    Cheers, D



  • @DanH store all the individual bypass states in an array, then from your master bypass, either bypass all modules or restore their state from the array



  • @ustk Thank you šŸ™‚ I don't know how to do this lol. Where do I need to start?



  • @DanH do you know how to use an array yet?



  • @dustbro The basic principle yes, I have several in my project doing various things, but I haven't come across storing changeable values in one yet... Assuming I'll be needing .getValue API at some point!



  • @DanH if you have several bypass buttons I imagine you have stored them in an array as well as the modules, so you use only one callback

    Just use the index of the buttons to store their value in the array using the button index

    bypassArray[btnIndex] = value;
    

    Then in the master bypas CB

    for (i=0; i<buttonsArray.length; i++)
    {
        if (value)
            moduleArray[i].setBypass(true);
        else
            moduleArray[i].setBypass(bypassArray[i]);
    }
    

    Sorry for the approximate typing Iā€™m on my phone...



  • @ustk You would imagine, but actually I went the long way round at the time as I didn't know scripting very well šŸ˜‚

    I'll see if I can figure it out



  • @DanH said in Master Bypass Button:

    @ustk You would imagine, but actually I went the long way round at the time as I didn't know scripting very well šŸ˜‚

    Time for some refactoring



  • @d-healey indeed, I find arrays really confusing. your scripting 101 video is great but only so deep. I have several arrays doing different jobs and which all look totally different (these are taken from scripts and snippets from the forum), and I can't figure out exactly what they do - scripting wise I mean...



  • @DanH

    which all look totally different (these are taken from scripts and snippets from the forum),

    You're making Frankenstein code šŸ‘»

    Make a new file and play around with arrays to get a better understanding. Just try stuff out.



  • @DanH This is where it is important to build a small house before constructing a building. Play as long as you need with the basics, make dummy projects, turn the code in all possible shapes, again and again, using different techniques to do the same thing from different angles, and understand EXACTLY what it does.
    Taking ideas and solutions on the forum is a good thing, applying ready-made blocks of code is less of a good thing...



  • @d-healey Yup, you see why I want my homework marked now right?



  • @ustk only just saw this, thank you šŸ™‚



  • @ustk Help please! šŸ˜‚ šŸ‘»

    I'm getting the error: Interface:! Line 50, column 35: Unknown function 'setBypassed'

    Which is the moduleArray line in the callback, but I suspect some other things might be wrong as well!

  • @DanH You're module array just contains strings, it doesn't contain any modules.



  • bypassArray[0] = Content.getComponent("Button1");
    bypassArray[1] = Content.getComponent("Button2");
    bypassArray[2] = Content.getComponent("Button3");
    bypassArray[0] = value;
    bypassArray[1] = value;
    bypassArray[2] = value;
    

    More crazy code šŸ˜›



  • as @d-healey says. Use your variables, not strings.

    const var moduleArray = [SINE1, SINE2, SINE3];



  • @DanH Ok so many things going on here

    First, the error you get is because what you stored in moduleArray are strings, not the variables you declared at the top

    Then another error, why are you declaring the buttons a second time in bypassArray, and why are you overwriting it again with value?

    bypassArray should be at the top too (like all declarations actually) and kept empty until the buttons callback are feeding it

    So this is better:

    const var SINE1 = Synth.getChildSynth("SINE1");
    const var SINE2 = Synth.getChildSynth("SINE2");
    const var SINE3 = Synth.getChildSynth("SINE3");
    
    const var moduleArray  = [SINE1, SINE2, SINE3];
    

    Even better so you declare directly the array of modules

    const var moduleArray = [Synth.getChildSynth("SINE1"),
                             Synth.getChildSynth("SINE2"),
                             Synth.getChildSynth("SINE3")];
    

    and then the buttons have the same treatment:

    const var buttonsArray = [Content.getComponent("Button1"),
                              Content.getComponent("Button2"),
                              Content.getComponent("Button3")];
    
    const var moduleArray = [Synth.getChildSynth("SINE1"),
                             Synth.getChildSynth("SINE2"),
                             Synth.getChildSynth("SINE3")];
    
    const var bypassArray  = [];
    

    Now we are going to feed bypassArray
    Before, you would have done this (temporarily, to show the progress):

    inline function onButton1Control(component, value)
    {
    	SINE1.setBypassed(1- value);
    	bypassArray[0] = value;
    };
    Content.getComponent("Button1").setControlCallback(onButton1Control);
    
    
    inline function onButton2Control(component, value)
    {
    	SINE2.setBypassed(1- value);
    	bypassArray[1] = value;
    };
    Content.getComponent("Button2").setControlCallback(onButton2Control);
    
    
    inline function onButton3Control(component, value)
    {
    	SINE3.setBypassed(1- value);
    	bypassArray[2] = value;
    };
    Content.getComponent("Button3").setControlCallback(onButton3Control);
    

    But instead, you can use only one callback for all the buttons

    inline function onBypassButtonsControl(component, value)
    {
        var btnIdx = buttonsArray.indexOf(component);
        
        moduleArray[btnIdx].setBypassed(value);
        bypassArray[btnIdx] = value;
    };
    for (b in buttonsArray) b.setControlCallback(onBypassButtonsControl);
    

    So we put altogether:

    const var buttonsArray = [Content.getComponent("Button1"),
                              Content.getComponent("Button2"),
                              Content.getComponent("Button3")];
    
    const var moduleArray = [Synth.getChildSynth("SINE1"),
                             Synth.getChildSynth("SINE2"),
                             Synth.getChildSynth("SINE3")];
    
    const var bypassArray  = [];    // The array that stores the buttons states (bypass)
    
    // INDIVIDUAL BYPASSES
    inline function onBypassButtonsControl(component, value)
    {
        var btnIdx = buttonsArray.indexOf(component);   // Which button has been clicked
        
        moduleArray[btnIdx].setBypassed(value);         // Set the corresponding module bypass
        bypassArray[btnIdx] = value;                    // Store the individual states
    };
    for (b in buttonsArray) b.setControlCallback(onBypassButtonsControl);
    
    
    // MASTER BYPASS
    inline function onmasterControl(component, value)
    {
        for (i=0; i<buttonsArray.length; i++)
        {
            if (value)                                      // If Master bypass ON
                moduleArray[i].setBypassed(true);           // Set all to bypass
            else
                moduleArray[i].setBypassed(bypassArray[i]); // Or restore their original state from the array
        }
    };
    Content.getComponent("master").setControlCallback(onmasterControl);

  • @ustk You missed an opportunity, you could use a single callback for all the buttons šŸ˜‰



  • @d-healey That is what I did, except for the master bypass, but I don't want to complicate it more for @DanH
    Or I don't get what you mean?
