I have a menu presentation that uses an image with a touch event that sends a UDP message to another player to play a video and then the menu transitions to a NowPlaying image where I want to display the name of the video that is playing. The name of each video needs to be the value of a user variable for that video. So, there would be a user variable, v1,v2,v3, etc and each would have the value equal to the name or title of that video. Then I want to use another user variable, say vidTitle as the source of the Live Text video name but I first need a way to set the value of vidTitle to value of v1,v2,v3, etc. How can this be done? Or, is there another way to achieve this?
You can use the value of a variable with $$< Variable name >$$
In BA Connected it is slightly different but same idea
OK, thanks for the response.
So then, if in the advanced tab of a touch event in the presentation that resides in Touch Screen BrightSign Player#1, I first Send a UDP message of key value "NVH5" which would be received by a Video Play File event in BrightSign Player#2, it would play that video. Then, follow this with a Set Variable command of "$$videoTitle:NVH5-T$$" the variable "videoTitle" would take on the value of the variable "NVH5-T" and then if used by the Live Text event the value of NVH5-T would show as the Live Text. I will give this a try.
Meanwhile, I was able to achieve my objective the hard way. I added 22 Live Text events, one for each video. It was a little bit of work, but it works just fine.
