Hi Everyone,

So I have been poking around in the GUI end of things, visiting the advanced topics in the ASPiK SDK, etc. I am looking to automate an image to display as a knob is changed, much like the alpha, which can be achieved in knob man. I was wondering if this is something best done using a customised view, or a sub controller, as both the knob and the image are on the GUI except one is obviously an image but one is not exactly a knob and will have no interaction.

Wondering if anyone has come across this, or know of some extended examples I can look at, I have no shame saying that this area is quite out of my depth currently! 

Im thinking it either as a subcontroller which can interact with the image alpha, or maybe placing the image as a knobman image and cycling through; I would just had to disable interaction with the image (knob).

Kind Regards,




This will be a topic I will be diving into over the next few weeks as there are a few things I would like to do such as displaying RMS and Peak values in a text box etc

Given that the alpha you're referring here to isn't opacity.

I think you're best off keeping them both as knobs and then just setting the image knob's "mouse enabled" tag to disabled from within the VSTGUI editor.

Hi James,

Interesting, thats exactly what I needed, I didn't see an interactive turn off anywhere but ill find the code to do that! I think that a customised view would be the better option but this should work!
