Hey, I’m working with the TDJSON python library to be able to broadcast the custom parameters from a container over the web, update the values on a website, and then send the new values back to the component. This will involve multiple components and parameters being updated at the same time.
TDJSON’s opToJSONOp made it super easy to send all the data, but I’m wondering if there’s an efficient way to take the updated values and reassign them back to the container ideally using the same dictionary format.
I noticed addParametersFromJSONDict has the ability to overwrite and update the values of a container, but it seems like overkill to recreate a parameter every time instead of just modifying the value. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
This will not trigger pulses. It’s only meant for data, not events. It wouldn’t be hard to analyze the par info dictionary yourself and handle pulsing as you like, though. The parInfo dictionary is not very complicated.
