getStatus using Folders

If you are using the Folder function in the Task window, you need to modify the get status command accordingly.

From WATCHOUT version 6.4 you have the possibility group and organize auxiliary timelines into folders in the task window.

The order of timelines, folders, and timelines in folders, all affect the stacking order when rendered. Due to this change the task status command has changed slightly as well.

If you use the getStatus command without any auxiliary timeline name parameter, you point at the main timeline.

Thus, an auxiliary timeline name parameter needs to be included in the string.

Example:

When NOT using the Folder function and having a timeline named “MyTimeline”; the get status command should be

getStatus 1 "TaskList:mItemList:mItems:TimelineTask \"MyTimeline\""

When USING the Folder function and having a timeline named “MyTimeline” in the folder “MyFolder” in your Task window; the get status command should be

getStatus 1 "TaskList:mItemList:mItems:TaskFolder \"MyFolder\" :mItemList:mItems:TimelineTask \"MyTimeline\""
