was trying to follow t=227s to do it with the lastest rackafx , but when trying to assign the control link:TAB_CTRL_0 was not able to do it , so would like to know how can i get it work ?
The new version of RackAFX (aka RAFX7) is more streamlined and does not include pre-made control IDs or other built-in components. Instead, you simply import them and define them as needed. For importing graphics, see the last video here:
In order to generate control IDs for tab controls, and other GUI elements that are not specifically linked to underlying plugin parameters, you use the Custom ID's tab in the GUI designer (it is the last one, and you will need to use the tab-arrows to get to it). Then you can use the New, Edit or Delete buttons to add your own IDs. RackAFX will assign the numerical value for you, to avoid conflicts with the others; user IDs start at 65536 and go up from there. The numerical value isn't important since we use the ID name as the reference. The images here show my addition of a new Control ID named "CONTROL_ID_0" and then it will appear in the control ID list for tab-switching elements; in the image below it is a vertical segment button. With the Control ID defined, the process is the same as the video you referenced. I will make a new video for this feature when I am back at the University in a few weeks.
Thanks for posting this - the GUI designer changes from the older version of RackAFX were put in place to streamline the GUI portion of the product.
thank you for your explanation ,the steps i did :
1-Create : custom IDs:My_custom_ID ,View Containers (at off Screen View), assign to the View Containers a "VC Name".
2-Drag from the Tmplts a "Tab-View Container" to the Main View.
3-Under the "Tab-View Container" make right click to be able to assign the Control Link: My_custom_ID
4-Click over the Assign Setup views to be able to add my view containers ("VC Names") to the Switch view List, and also to select the animation time (where can i see this in the code ??)
5-Create a on/off Button (i did it because I only need to switch between 2 view containers) with the same ID as the "Tab-View Container" :My_custom_ID
.I was able to do it work .
Then I was trying to create two more "Tab-View Container" to the Main View, in order that when the user press the on/off button will see a in the first "Tab-View Container" a list of buttons (fx1,fx,2fx,3 buttons horizontal ) to be able to select one of them and if pressed one of them it will call a second view "Tab-View Container" with a set of knobs to adjust the parameters of the selected button (fx) also will call at the same time a third "Tab-View Container" that will display the name and data of the current parameters .
But it seems that when using a switch from a view container to call another view container doesn't work
The tab control can only control one UISwitchViewContainer and must be connected to it. You can embed these, one inside another, but each tab-control and associated UISwitchViewContainer must be *uniquely* paired. If you want to embed one in another, you need an outer view container, with no tab-control, to hold the inner view container (with tab control).
For more advanced functionality, VSTGUI4 contains the Subcontroller paradigm that allows much more complex connections between controls and that might be what you need. There is an example in the ASPiK SDK and documentation which links knobs together. However, you will need to study VSTGUI4 more deeply as part of the process.
