Revision History - v7.50
Daqarta v7.50 - 7 January 2014
New Multiple Meters mini-app allows simultaneous independent voltage and/or frequency measurement on all active channels. It uses a separate Custom Meter for each channel which shows one of 10 measurement types selected for that channel, or all 10 measurements at once via tall meters.
New File Navigator mini-app shows the complete waveform of a long file, compressed to fit on a single screen, and shows the current file position via the dotted vertical cursor bar. This can be dragged to any part of the file shown on the compressed display, instantly moving the main display to the equivalent position in the file.
Macro Arrays Buf0-Buf7 can now be used as String Arrays to store strings of up to 8, 16, 32, or 64 characters per element, for later use as custom controls or meter labels, Log File column headers, etc.
Macro IF statements can now contain nests up to 16 levels deeper (more indented) than the main IF. (You can have an arbitrary number of IF statements at each level.)
When reading DDisk files, the FilePosn#S macro allows setting file position directly in samples, reagardless of current readout Units. Similarly, FilePosn?S allows reading the current position in samples.
New Posn?S read-only query returns the number of samples used for Voltmeter RMS measurements, even if the Voltmeter is not active. Macros may use this number for synchronous RMS measurements on any channel.
Custom Controls dialogs can now use a Font command Ctrls="<F(N)" to set the size of the dialog, independently of other dialogs. (Those are controlled by the default Dialog Font Size set in the Start Preferences.)
Custom Controls dialogs now have a minimize ('_') button at upper right, allowing more screen space for other displays when the controls are not constantly needed.
The Channel Select macro Ch includes new query options Ch?c to find the lowest displayed channel number, Ch?i to find the lowest input channel, and Ch?o to find the lowest output.
New V option allows RangeDlg?V, GainDlg?V, Atten_G?V, Atten_dB?V, UserFactor?V, and UserSPL?V to return values for previously-set Ch channel number, instead of immediate channel digit like RangeDlg?2, etc.
String expressions may now use computed-position output formatting via new p(UA) and f*(UA) options, which position the next string output at column UA (or any math expression) from 0-999.
String expressions may now use q to insert a " quote into a string, so that Msg=q+"Quote"+q will show "Quote" including the quotes.
MIDI Changes script Output Display commands to Custom Messages, Custom Meters, or a Log File now support full string expressions, including display of macro and internal Daqarta variables that are normally not accessible from MIDI scripts.
Bug Fix: Macro command E.IF.WaveMute failed on Vista and above.
Bug Fix: Custom Macro Message position was not being saved after dragging; next message always went to 0,0.
Bug Fix: When reading DDisk files, the position readout at the right end now properly allows direct entry to jump to a specified file location. (It was jumping to the start of the file, no matter what was entered.)
Bug Fix: Custom Meter Mtr0 queries (like A=Mtr0?X to read absolute X position) failed. Queries for Mtr1-3 unaffected.
Bug Fix: Running certain MIDI Changes scripts like GlossyTracks that load text (.TXT) files caused later main file open to default to showing only .TXT files unless another type was manually selected.
Bug Fix: Display Channel macros DispLI, RI, LO, and RO now return 1 only if the channel is selected (button depressed) and enabled.
Bug Fix: First_Run macro could fail to run when manually activated, depending on state of Left Input channel.
