Sending text from Izzy to an iPad

    it does definitely work the other way around. If you set the OSC Listener type to text you can then pass it to the text draw actor.

    Hi Michel,

    Thanks for the post. I ended up with a second Izzy on a windows laptop (ooooh if some people read this hahaha) and got it working with 45 OSC streams. I don't get it to work with multi transmit, maybe text can't be send with that.

    You are right, just tested and it does not work with OSC multi transmit. Not sure if this is a bug or meant to be. @Mark?

    So far that is not working with the OSC listener. See text , but can't use it further

     Not much luck here seeing any text from my iPhone... Communication works, I can send text to an OSC element as "label1", but I can not read the text back into Isadora, since "label1" can not be triggered into the stream setup of Isadora and therefore does not get a channel number. What is the trick to communicate with a "label" element? Best regards, Tom

    Well is this not more a problem of TouchOSC If you can't trigger a text element?

  • Usually I let Isadora detect OSC inputs automatically.
    Any slider or button does work, because I can adjust them and they get recognized by Isadora.

    Since I can not "adjust" a label, I tried to add a channel manually for "/1/label1". 
    But without luck… What is the trick here? What am I doing wrong?

    You are not doing anything wrong. A label in touch OSC is static and does not send anything.

     I thought so. But are there actually any options to get text of of OSC?

    Not as far as I know TouchOSC only receives strings but can't send them. I guess what you want to do is send a prepared text with a button press, right?

    if you use the free software from Bitfocus called Companion (https://bitfocus.io). When you launch the app you select the ip address of the GUI interface don't use the localhost if you want to use your tablet or smartphone. Now you can add a new instance by category "Generic-->Generic OSC". You then configure the IP address and port of the software you want to control. If Isadora is on the same computer use 127.0.0.1 and the default port would be 1234. Then you go to buttons and click on one of them. You can now labe the button (button text) and add a "add key down/on action". Choose osc: Send String. Now you can set the OSC path (or leave the default) and the string you want to send. Do this for all buttons. Then take your smartphone or tablet and type your ip 192.xxx.xxx.xx:8000/tablet.html. There you go.

    Wow! That is quite an answer! Thanks a lot. I will try to look into this.

    Best regards and a good weekend ;o)
