Need help on PAL scripting. Still Learning


Recommended Posts

function ActivePlayer:TPlayer; forward;

 

In the statement above I cannot figure out what the "forward;" does and I can't find any info online about what it does. All of the regular functions(fadetonext,fadetoplay,fadetopause, etc) make sense to me but that one doesn't. Just in case it's necessary I will include the entire code that my partner came up with. Maybe that's why it wasn't working and he abandoned using it. It was supposed to clear the queue at 10:59:35(pm) and load an ElectroMix Intro and then start the Electromix. My first thought is, the time is supposed to be a 24 clock so it should be ['22:59:35'], right? and maybe we should just get rid of that top line of code because I don't think it does anything. Let me know! Thanks for the help. :helpsmilie:

 

function ActivePlayer:TPlayer; forward;

{Wait for right time}

PAL.Loop := true;

PAL.WaitForTime(T['10:59:35']);

{Clear Queue}

Queue.Clear;

ActivePlayer.FadeToNext;

Cat ['Electro Mix Intros'].QueueTop(smRandom,NoRules);

-------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE (A few minutes later)

Perhaps it should look like this:

{Wait for right time}

PAL.Loop := true;

PAL.WaitForTime(T['22:59:50']);

{Clear Queue}

Queue.Clear;

Cat ['Electro Mix Intros'].QueueTop(smRandom,NoRules);

ActivePlayer.FadeToNext;

The statment FOWARD tells the script that a FUNCTION will be used, but is defined later on in the script.

 

This is 10:59:35 AM

[b]PAL.WaitForTime(T['10:59:35']);[/b]

 

This is 10:59:50 PM

[b]PAL.WaitForTime(T['22:59:50']);[/b]

 

PAL uses a 24 hour clock.

Welcome to BW !

As new member I wanna redirect you to my sticky topics about SAM Broadcaster and PAL scripts

I'm pretty sure you gonna find the PAL about ActivePlayer at those pages

please see this page at BW :

http://forums.broadcastingworld.net/showthread.php?t=7199

at the end of part 1 you'll find a link to part 2

Note : all PAL scripts who are mentioned in both topics are 100% operational (so just copy and paste and change "time" and "directory" where needed)

Hope this was usefull

I have no clue on what you are trying to do. Very hard to make suggestions when you only give me a part of the code to look at.

 

Take out the line:

function ActivePlayer:TPlayer; forward;

 

Why do you need that?

 

Perhaps, if you had posted the entire script, we would have known why that line was in there.

May I ask you to read my earlier reply to your question ?

it looks that you ignore my reply ... isn't ?

 

Link to that page at BW who is mentioned into my reply and you gonna find all PAL scripts who are usefull and who can be used by your services.

The only thing you have to do is "copy and paste" and change the "directory" and "Time"

and you are up and running !

Perhaps you should go back to the top and read my original post :retard:
