onSaveSubPreset(section)

Description

This callback function is called when saving a subpreset with a corresponding preset template. The callback will only be called if the scope of the preset template is set correctly.

  • If the MacroPage with the preset template is attached to an element other than the script module (e.g., the program), the scope of the preset template must be set to the script module (e.g., @0:Script Module).
  • If the MacroPage with the preset template is attached to the script module itself, the scope does not need to be set.

In addition, you need to define a section for the preset template. When you save a subpreset, the section will be passed on from the preset template to the callback. You can manage different subsets of parameters by using the section as condition for an if statement that stores only the parameters of interest. The data you pass on to the return statement will be stored with the subpreset. The data can be of any type, but it is common practice to use a table that can easily be extended with more fields. When the subpreset is restored, the onLoadSubPreset callback will receive the stored data.

Scope and section are template parameters. You can set them in the MacroPage Designer on the properties pane of the preset template.

Available in: Controller.

Arguments

sectionThe section as defined in the preset template.string

Return Values

The returned data will be stored in a subpreset.

Example

--[[
    The corresponding MacroPage needs two preset templates: One with
    the section set to Pitch and the other with the section set to Filter.

    The preset template with the section Pitch stores/restores the
    parameters Pitch.Coarse and Pitch.Fine.

    The preset template with the section Filter stores/restores the
    parameters Filter.Cutoff and Filter.Resonance.

function getZoneData(p1, p2)
	local data = {}
    local zone = this.program:findZones(true)

        data.p1 = zone[1]:getParameter(p1)
        data.p2 = zone[1]:getParameter(p2)

    local zone = this.program:findZones(true)
    if zone[1] then
        zone[1]:setParameter(p1, data.p1)
        zone[1]:setParameter(p2, data.p2)
    end
end

-- save data with the subpreset
function onSaveSubPreset(section)
    if section == "Pitch" then
        return getZoneData("Pitch.Coarse", "Pitch.Fine" ) -- called from preset template Pitch
    elseif section == "Filter" then
        return getZoneData("Filter.Cutoff", "Filter.Resonance") -- called from preset template Filter
    end
end

-- restore data from the subpreset
function onLoadSubPreset(section, data)
    if section == "Pitch" then
        setZoneData("Pitch.Coarse", "Pitch.Fine", data) -- called from preset template Pitch
    elseif section == "Filter" then
        setZoneData("Filter.Cutoff", "Filter.Resonance", data) -- called from preset template Filter
    end
