Editing And Changing Values




The Parameters view shows all RDM parameters [PIDs including fixed parameter IDs as well as manufacturer-specific IDs] that are supported by the currently selected device [or even currently selected devices].




By default, the following information is provided since the following columns are enabled in the list:


Represents the parameter numbering as index and is especially useful for referencing parameters in the list.


Shows each specific parameter that is supported.


Shows the current value for each parameter.

Associated PIDs

Shows the specific PID or PIDs that are assigned to the parameter.



Editing And Changing Values


In general, this overview shows information provided by the RDM device.
In specific cases, the edit icon [that is, a pen] shows that the respective information can be edited by you.



Left Mouse Double-Click - Perform a double-click with your left mouse button on a value in order to edit it.
- Keyboard shortcut: F2
- Confirm with Enter [or click outside of the currently active cell with the mouse]. Abort any changes with Escape.


You may be presented with different choices for the specific parameter.
In this example, 0x00 or 0x01 is the value that will be sent over RDM.

You may be able to directly enter numbers or text as input.

When having selected several devices in the Devices view and their parameters have different values, the software will display this accordingly.

When changing a value, the change will be made for all selected RDM devices that support this parameter.


Valid Values And Limits

The valid values for each parameter are defined by the RDM device and its set of features [such as DMX Personality], the RDM standard [such as Identify], or a different standard [such as DMX Start Address for DMX512].


Visual Feedback For Edits

The software will show you if any changes you have made are set successfully or not. This status is shown for a couple of seconds after each change.

Green - The RDM device reported back that the changes were successfully set.

Yellow - The request is currently pending.

Red - The fixture could not successfully set the new value or the request timed out.

If you are editing several devices, the list cell can split in the according number of selected devices and show each status individually.




Right Mouse Click - Perform a click with your right mouse button on a device.



Allows you to change the entry [if it can be edited]. [Keyboard shortcut: F2]

Request Parameter (Get:ParameterId)

Sends a new request to the device in order to obtain the latest parameter values, which includes all personalities and their corresponding descriptions. [Corresponds to the Get-command of the specific PID if available.]

Copy To Clipboard

Copies the currently selected cell [that is, single information] into the clipboard/temporary memory. [Keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + C]

Copy Line To Clipboard

Copies the currently selected line or lines [that is, all parameter information] into the clipboard/temporary memory. [Keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + Shift + C]

Save Snapshot As...

Saves the entire, currently shown list/view/table as a preformatted text file.




Search - Enter any text in order to search all parameters in the list.
- Any device/line that includes the search term will be shown. All others are temporarily filtered out.
- Terms can be case-insensitive. You don't have to use capital letters.
- Feel free to use terms that are incomplete. For example, mad will include results for MADRIX.
- You may specify certain columns by using a colon [:].
- For example: val:MAD shows all lines where MADRIX might be included in a product description for example by referencing the column Value, for example.




You can set up specific settings for Parameters in the Options.
