Using a Ring in a State Machine - Can I Show the Item Name in Each Case?

In the past, I've always used strings to pass states from one loop iteration to the next.  I'd like to try doing that numerically, with a Ring or similar to avoid problems with typos in my strings.  However, when I set it up with a ring, each case only shows the Ring number, not the text description.  Is there a way to set up a numerically-based case structure that shows a text description for each case?  Thanks!

Ahah!  Replaced the ring constant with an Enum constant, and everything works beautifully now.  Never mind.
I'll still mind to help you with the question you will have soon.
Save the enum as a type def then replace all of the constants of that enum with the type-def'd version. By using a type def, you can edit the type def to add new values and all instanses will automatically adapt. WIth a plain enum, if you edit one instance and not the others, you will be back in number land again.

TO save as type def...
click-click create control
Goto FP and right-click new enum control and chose advanced customize.
In Control editor change drop down from "Control" to "type def".
Save
Replace

  • Can I show the column name for my legend?

    I have a bunch of graphs where the legend labels (ie. the values from the column) aren't really informative (ie. simple numeric values), and are part of a dimensional hierarchy, so you might see a graph whose legend has 1, 14, 38, 141 and you click on one of them and get another graph whose legend is 345, 6546, 2342. My current solution is to create a logical column prepending the value with a column name, so my values are now "District 1", "District 14", "District 38", "District 141". But it would be so much nicer if I could just show "District" above the legend. Is there any way to do this?

    My be this can give you a help:
    [code]
    SELECT *
    FROM   ALL_CONSTRAINTS
    WHERE  R_CONSTRAINT_NAME IN (SELECT CONSTRAINT_NAME
                                                               FROM   ALL_CONSTRAINTS
                                                               WHERE  TABLE_NAME = 'TABLE_NAME'

  • How can I show the file name of the photo?

    Shouldn't this meda data show load with the photo. When i'm sharing similar photos with people, I would like them to be able to reference a file name.

    Display of filenames is not a current revel feature. Some users have asked for metadata to be displayed and this is on the wishlist for consideration.

    On imac 10.6.8 using current version of Aperture.  How can I access the Aperture Library  on my external hard drive that I use with time machine for backup?  I can only access the application but not the library..

    Go into Time Machine (the program not the bundle on the extrnal disk) and using Time Machine's browser go to the Folder where the library lives. You could look in the library bundle in Time Machine but that won't really tell you much,
    If you want to make sure it truely has backed up your library you will need to restore it and open the restored library with Aperture.
    If all this still has you confused you need to read up on Time Machine in order to get a feel for how it works, for what it is doing and for how to restore files from it.

    This is really difficult to the point of not really worth it.
    Keep the old TM backups in archive.. and start afresh on the TC.
    Time Machine has a different way of backing up on Network drives cf Local drives.
    Pondini does have a method to do it... but I would not recommend it.

  • How many machines can I install the $79.99 version on?

    How many machines can I install the $79.99 version on?

    If this is a personal purchase, not for a business, then the terms of sale for the Mac App Store state that you may install any software on all computers you "own or control". If it's for a business for installation on multiple computers that are each used by a different user, then basically the terms are one installation per purchase. Here is the official statement:
    If you are a commercial enterprise or educational institution, you may download a Mac App Store Product for use by either (a) a single individual on each of the Mac Computer(s) used by that individual that you own or control or (b) multiple individuals on a single shared Mac Computer that you own or control. For example, a single employee may use a Mac App Store Product on both the employee’s desktop Mac Computer and laptop Mac Computer, or multiple students may serially use a Mac App Store Product on a single Mac Computer located at a resource center or library. For the sake of clarity, each Mac Computer used serially by multiple users requires a separate license.

  • I am putting together a proposal for a Final Cut Pro Workstation to use with a tapeless HD camera.  Can anyone suggest the best camera (in the 5-10,000 dollar range) ?  What hardware and software should I include in the package?

    I am putting together a proposal for a Final Cut Pro Workstation to use with a tapeless HD camera.  Can anyone suggest the best camera (in the 5-10,000 dollar range) ?  What hardware and software should I include in the package?

    This is quite an open suggestion, but here are some ideas which might get you started.  There are good HD cameras in your price range from Sony, Panasonic and Canon (and maybe other manufacturers). Tapeless formats vary.  I have only worked with Sony XDCAM which seems pretty good to me.  File sizes for material shot at 35MBS are not too huge and, with the free Sony transfer and conversion programme, are easy to bring into the computer via USB direct from the camera or from a fairly inexpensive converter.  The Sony XDCAM EX3 can produce results well up to broadcast quality.
    As to hardware, you'll need a powerful MAC - iMac, Macbook Pro or MacPro with 4GB or more of RAM and a good video card.  Softwarewise, FCPX is quite a bit cheaper than FC Studio 3 and of course it's 64bit and can make better use of multi-core machines than FCP7.    It's also designed to handle HD formats with less hassle than FCP7 and is matched to the latest versions of Motion and Compressor.   But you'd probably be wise to search reviews of FCPX before you make your choice - it has some issues.
    A good HD monitor will be essential and, for colour correction etc, you may want to consider a second monitor or HD TV foe editing. ( A MacPro is generally the best machine to connect a second monitor to). 
    This should give you a good editing system, but there are many other things you could add (Photoshop, professional sound monitors, etc)
    Hope this helps a bit.

    I need help please to find the correcte download so i can my wii-fii work as soon as possible (because my wife is making me crazy, she can't go on Facebook!!!! )
    Thank's for your help,

    Use AirPort Utility 5.6 which contains the features you need. It is compatible with Lion as well as Mountain Lion, however, the installer app will refuse to install it on Mountain Lion.
    This dilemma is easily solved though. You simply need to extract the app from the installer package using a package extractor like Pacifist.
    Download Pacifist here: http://www.charlessoft.com/
    Download AirPort Utility 5.6 here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1482
    If you happen to have an archived copy of the AU 5.6 app somewhere, such as a Time Machine backup or equivalent, you can simply restore it or drag the app to your Mountain Lion system's Utilities folder. It will run without complaint. It is only the package installer that is the problem.
    Mountain Lion will not allow you to delete its existing version of AirPort Utility. Just ignore it. It and the older version (which will bear the unique name "AirPort Utility 5.6") can peacefully coexist.
    Note: For those with Leopard or Snow Leopard systems you need AirPort Utility 5.6.1 (this is confusing - a later AirPort Utility version for an earlier OS X version - but it is correct).
    Download AirPort Utility 5.6.1 here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1536

    That indicates a hardware failure. Read here:

    If nothing works, you most likely have a hardware failure. Make an appointment at an Apple store to confirm.

    It's good to read Antoniad's post.  It reassures me that I can use my new iPad as an international communication device which is the reason I purchased the thing.  However, I called Verizon today (my provider of cellular data) who told me that I can't just pop in a SIM card as you suggested.  He also said that he was from the "Pre-Pay" division of Verizon and he was certain that I couldn't do what I planned to do.  I was extremely disappointed as I had called Apple prior to buying the iPad and I read the algorhythm on the website for choosing an iPad before purchasing.  Those sources were quite specific and the information seemed clear.  I would be able to use my iPad to communicate through cellular connections while traveling on the road, literally, abroad.  I was told that I could pop in a data card wherever I was, just as you indicated in your message above, and voila I was good to go.  The Verizon rep definitively rained on that parade, but said that I might be able to do this if I have a "Post-Pay" account, a different area of Verizon.  I haven't had the chance to talk to this division yet, so I looked to Apple's Support for answers.  Maybe I will find out that I can use my iPad as an international communication device while traveling on the road afterall, however, it appears I may need a different type of account (Post-Pay), something I was never warned about. Can I switch to this kind of account?  I don't know.  I have to find out.  If you have any information about this issue, it would be good to share since I strongly suspect there are others who bought the iPad for the same purpose that I have.

  • My file names have disappeared in grid view. Thery have been replaced with a dark bar along the bottom of the previews. If I toggle using the command u it hide the bar but I still can't see the file name. In list view all the file names are OK.

    My file names have disappeared in grid view. Thery have been replaced with a dark bar along the bottom of the previews. If I toggle using the command u it hide the bar but I still can't see the file name. In list view all the file names are OK.

    The dark bar is caused by the option "Show metadata below image".
    Check the settings for the metadata overlays in Grid view (basic and expanded) by clicking the little "badge" icon below the Browser and selecting "Edit". Is the filename still enabled in the list? And in a high enough position to have precedence for other metadata tags, if the space does not suffice to show all selected tags?

  • Can we get the label name of the particular oracle field using open script

    hi
    can we get the label name of the oracle fields like column name ORDER NUMBER instead of ORDER_ORDER_NUMBER_0 when recording using openscript.

    Good morning
    Do you develop functional or load test scripts?
    I don't think we can in both cases because this is really the name of the field + the index.
    The zero refers to first line normally (then 1 for second line and so on).
    "Order number" is maybe the display label which is not enough to recognize and interact with a field.
    May I ask why you want this, then it could help me (us) to give you a good solution/workaround.
    Cheers

    If all you are trying to do is buy music, you can easily buy MP3s at any online music download store (e.g. amazon.com) and add them to your iTunes library.

  • When using large text my lines overpal, how can I increase the line spacing?

    When using large text my lines overpal, how can I increase the line spacing?

    Press 'Ctrl + Enter' after the numbered item to insert blank space below it. If you press 'Enter', the next line will start with the next number. As long as you want to type lines without a numbering, press 'Ctrl + Enter' and type the line.
