[ANSWERED] Sending IP Addresses with Set Global Values/Broadcasters
Fred last edited by Woland
I want to set a lot of IP addresses from one place, both set/get global values and broadcaster/listener pairs truncate the string and cannot send an IP address - screenshot below.

by the listener you must change the type to text.
by global value I think you have to connect the output of "get global Values" to a text input of an actor to get the whole address
Both of these issues can be corrected by setting/mutating the types as needed.
In the case of the Listener, its as simple as setting the type input to 'text'. That will allow the full ip text to pass through.
For the Global value, you need to mutate the input (as you have by connecting it to a text output) AND mutate the Get Global Values output to text in the same way.
If you connect this output to the text input of a Trigger Text actor, it will mutate to text, and you will see the full IP address.

@dusx Thanks, sorry for the late reply, I totally forgot about this. Is this something that seems like it is ripe for a change? Reoving the need for making the last connection? It seems that it makes more sense to change the output based on the input data type? Or maybe that's just my opinion.

I agree with @fred here; it is extraordinary and, at times, frustrating to find a way to ‘mutate’ an input or output, often resorting to temporarily placing an actor just for that purpose. A local parameter input/output mode switch would provide a great deal more transparency for mutable data points.

It's on our list :)
