My new plugin : CharacterCount (text length)



  • Hi,

    Here is a new plugin I made. Its purpose is to give you the length of a text.
    INPUT:
    - Input text
    - Linebreak mode (windows CR/LF, mac CR, unix/macosx LF). 
    - Ignore new lines
    - Ignore tab characters
    - Ignore space characters
    - Autocount on input change
    - Trigger counting
    OUTPUT:
    - Text length
    - 'Length updated' trigger
    ABOUT LINEBREAKS:
    You have to choose the proper mode according to the input text or else the result will be erratic... If you use e.g. [this other plugin](http://troikatronix.com/troikatronixforum/discussion/694/read-text-from-a-file-i-wrote-a-plugin) to generate text, you have to make both linebreak modes match with the same value. If your text comes from an Isadora actor, just choose linebreak mode according to the OS you work on. More info: [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_break_(computing)](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_break_(computing)) 
    IN THE ATTACHED ZIP FILE:
    - Windows DLL (to install, just copy the .dll file into ‘IsadoraInstallationFolder\Isadora Plugins’, e.g. C:\Program Files\Isadora\Isadora Plugins. Don’t forget to restart Isadora.)
    - 2 Visual studio 2010 source files, feel free to compile it using xCode for a Mac version
    I haven't tested it much yet, so please post a comment below if something doesn't work.
    Have fun ;)
