FRStack 3 and Touch Portal question

  • Question
  • Updated 4 months ago
I am using FRStack3 (3.1.7.24) and Touch Portal and trying to add two separate panadapter zoom buttons, one for Slice A, and one for Slice B.  However, each button seems to work on the Active Slice, not the designated slice.  Here are the HTTP Get commands I used.  
http://localhost:13522/api/Slice/A/pan?param=down
http://localhost:13522/api/Slice/B/pan?param=down
Can anyone spot if I am doing something wrong here?  Thanks!

I tested your commands in my Touch Portal setup and I get the same behavior.  Active slice only.  Flex 6600M v2.5.1

I haven’t tried using lowercase as you have it; Try upper case PAN and DOWN  Also you can paste the command into browser and play with it.  I have noticed something similar with CENTER only working on active slice.   Maybe reach out to FRStack developer if no one else sees something.

I also have a problem with a command that works fine outside of Touch Portal but doesn’t from TP...  Smells like a TP portal problem to me for that.  So make sure yours works without TP first.

I will try the upper case commands.  I also didn't know that I could just use a browser to test.  Thanks for the good suggestions.

I tried upper case commands without any difference.  Time to alert Mark ?

Mark - for what it's worth I have same symptom with Pan and Center for a specific slice.  Defaults to active.  

http://localhost:13522/api/Slice/A/PAN?param=CENTER.

Thank you so much for the responsiveness and most importantly the flexibility having REST calls for this.  It's way cool hooking up via my old Android, TouchPoint and your API's!

How do I prevent a Chrome web browser window from opening when I call a REST API URL directly from Touch Portal ?  Why does this happen ?

Figured it out, pretty easy once the lights come on.

Yes, use the HTTP Get action in Touch Portal to call the REST API URL.
