[Solved] OSC Listener not outputting correct value / Allow user to enter text
I'm very new to Isadora. Anyway, I want the user to be able to enter text and then have a new draw text actor created so their text can appear in the video.
Right now I'm working on getting the text input. I'm using an OSC Listener to get characters from the keyboard using a Keyboard Watcher and OSC Transmit. It works fine up until the OSC output - it puts the number 97 as Text. I have the type set to text so I don't know why it's converting to the character value. Here's a screenshot.
What's up with it?
The Keyboard Watcher's output is not actually the data type "Text". You will see that if you try to connect its output directly to an actor that has an input of the "Text" data type, such as the Trigger Text actor, Isadora will not let you (because they are not compatible data types). The "97" you are seeing is the ACII value of the letter "a".
OHHH! I didn't know about the control panel... that makes this a lot easier. Thank you!
