Selecting Indicators

The Indicator command selects one or more indicators in the system. Indicators are typically the LED indicators of pushbuttons on the front of a CueServer or individual indicators on a connected button station. Use the Indicator command in conjunction with an action command like At, On, Off or Set to change the indication state of one or more indicators. When used alone or in logic expressions, the Indicator command returns the current state of the specified indicator(s).

Either a single indicator number can be specified, or a range of indicators can be specified using the various selection operators like +, -, > and ~.

The wildcard character * can be used as the indicator number to mean all indicators for a particular station.

Working With Stations

When no station number specified, the default station is assumed. The Station command can be used to change the default station. Unless changed by the Station command, the default station is typically Station 0, which corresponds to the built-in indicators on the CueServer itself. When a station number is specified as part of the Indicator command, that station number will be used for the selection.

Determining Which Indicators Are Selected

The question mark ? can be used to ask what the current selection is. A selection string will be returned, which will consist of a single number (like 3) or a range (like 5>7+9), or if no indicators are selected, 0 will be returned.


Indicator 1

Indicator 1>5 On
Turns indicators 1 thru 5 on.

Indicator 1>3+5>8 Off
Turns indicators 1 through 3 and 5 through 8 off.

Indicator 1.* Off
Turns indicators of all buttons on station 1 off.

Indicator 7 On

Indicator ?
