Making 3 different modes on the dash that is changeable with buttons on the steering wheel. I have all of the gauges and information and stuff in 3 different containers per mode, (normal right, normal left, normal boost, sport right, etc) with conditions and actions that’s working for the most part (see my other post on gauge fading). When RealDash loads, the normal gauges display properly, but when I change over the other modes, almost none of the arc indicators, text, etc shows on the screen. The the image gauges show up properly, but nothing else.
Let me know what you might need to work through this.
I have steering wheel 5&6 mapped to some paddle shifters on the steering wheel that rotates Dummy 40 value up and down between 1&3. What I’m trying to achieve is when I push the paddle shifters it changes the layout to the different ones I’m setting up. I don’t have any video’s, but here’s a picture of what it was doing, vs what it should show.
I uploaded some changes to GitHub - smwoodward/realdash-MR2. on the .rd file, I turned off vertical and horizontal scrolling and turned off clipping, and even increased the sizes of the containers. The new update I uploaded is the one that says MR2_OEM Autoscale test.rd
Attached in the github is also pictures. In IMG_4785 is what the “normal” mode is suppose to look like, and IMG_4786 is what the “sport” mode looks like when changed, which isn’t correct. Now if I edit the dash while the sport mode is open, make a small edit and save and close realdash, when it launches again the “sport” mode gauge will show and it shows properly like what’s in IMG_4787 and when changing to “normal” it doesn’t display properly as in IMG_4788.
I do not have a lot of time to troubleshoot custom dashboards. For what time I had to investigate yours, I did not find anything that would directly point something wring with the container. It seems like there is a problem with triggers that will set your gauges invisible, but cannot confirm that either.
I’m sorry, but I just cant use hours to troubleshoot your work. If you still believe this is a bug in containers, try to make simpler example with clear step-by-step information of a problem.
When the dash loads press the rotate button in the center and the next look should have several elements that are clipped out. Edit the dash and move the rotate button and save the dash. Close RD and reopen. The missing elements on that look should now display properly. Press the rotate button until the first gauge display shows and it should now show clipped out objects and not display like it did before the save.
The problem with containers remains!
I’ll try to describe it.
Created a button that toggles “dummy 10” in the 0/1 range.
Created 2 actions.
1e for “dummy 10” =0.
2nd for “dummy 10” =1.
Created 2 containers.
If “dummy 10” =0 then hide container 1
show container 0
If “dummy 10” =1 then hide container 0
show container 1
In each of the containers there are several sensors of the needle, text, image.
The background of the container is transparent.
By pressing the button set “dummy 10 = 1”
, then return the value “dummy 10 = 0” by clicking again.
Surprisingly, not all sensors will appear inside the container.
Randomly will still be hidden.
Let’s set, for example, green and red backgrounds to our containers to identify them.
Let’s press the button a few more times.
Container backgrounds appear correctly.
But the contents of the containers are still ramdomly hidden.
Let’s click in edit mode on the hidden sensor that we expect to see and move on to setting up the input for it. The sensor is displayed on the right.
Let’s move on to setting the view and the sensor is hidden again.
So this is not a problem with custom triggers or panels.
This is a longstanding problem with the HIDE & SHOW functions.
She showed up about 3 years ago. She hasn’t been resolved. Although I described it as best as I could.
We were forced to abandon the use of containers and the “Hide & show” functionality.
Perhaps this time you will have a little time to figure it out.
In this video, I have added two containers with different content, and I turn on the visibility through the button. After that I will edit and save the panel.
Obviously, after saving, RD remembered the invisible sensors. When you restart RD, they will no longer show them. If you make another container invisible and save. After the restart, another container will not be visible.
