Schedules: Tricks with text.

July 12, 2011

A question on the AUGI forums came up about the ability to add or combine strings of text together in a schedule. http://forums.augi.com/showthread.php?t=131429

While that function would be great you can not directly combine strings of text in a schedule.

You can however do some mathematical formulas and “toggle” on or off preset strings of text. Take a look and try for yourself. If nothing else it could make for a nifty party trick.

For the trick you will need:

An integer parameter.
A calculated value – that is set to: Text, and a formula.

Set your formula to something like:
if(integer = 1, “Show text string 1”, if(integer = 2, “Show text string 2”, “ERROR”))

Tip: you can keep nesting IF statements if you need more than two strings of text.

Refer to the attached image for how this works.
