Script Control Commands

Use a script control command to program a sequence of cues to loop automatically or to jump from one cue to another. Script controls can be used to fire Audio Playlists, Announcement Loops, and approved Tweets without opening the controls (pop-up windows) for those features.


Adding script control commands


To add a Script Control Command cue, on the Home tab, click Insert Elements > Script Control.


Setting script control command properties


Open the Script Control Command cue in the Inline Editor to set the properties. Settings are found on the ribbon in the Control Options group. Or, if you want to edit the Script Control without losing the cue you are editing in the Inline Editor, click the down arrow on the title bar of the Script Control cue to open the Cue Options dialog box.

The following settings are available:

  • Target. Select the cue that will be played when the command fires (plays). Options include First cue, Previous Cue, Play Next, Last Cue, Audio Playlist, Announcement Loop, and Approved Tweets, followed by a list of all cues in the script.
  • Play Times. Choose Loop or the number of times the command is to play up to 10.
  • Advance To. Use this field to designate the cue that will be played after the command has been played the number of times set in the Play Times field.
  • Schedule Playing. Select this option to set the command to fire at a specific time. Set the time in the Time field.
  • Time. If Scheduled Playing is selected, choose the time of day for the command to fire.
