TextPad Documentation

Note: The documentation always refers to the latest version of the plugin

The TextPad plugin lets an incomming signal of any kind to send a predefined text message on the corresponding output. The text message can be formated using keywords inside brackets. Take note that the data keyword is dependent upon the precens of incomming data. If incomming data is a trigger, the data keyword will produce an empty string.

[date]Current date in the format of year-month-day, ie “2016-04-26”.
[time]Current time in 24 hours format, ie “21:03”.
[random]A random generated hash/guid, ie “c2fefc7805154ac3bbde4e8479aa9fcd”.
[data]The data received by the Data input connector.

Examples of using brackets

Using the data keyword can be nice if you want to embed information in the text, maybe a weather corecast status that is sent to one of the inputs:

“Good morning sir, its [data] today”

would in this example output something like:

“Good morning sir, its raining today”
