One Function Connected to 2 Controls

Is it possible to connect one stop or coupler with two different controls on a single page? Both controls should be able to engage / disengage the stop / coupler. The other control should switch its stage accordingly.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Best, Chris

I don't think you need the CODM to do this. Auto-detect (right click) the first control you want, accept, then auto-detect the second. At that point Hauptwerk will put up a message asking whether you really want both controls to affect the same stop / coupler, and will show you alternatives. Just accept “both controls” :-)

Hello Chris,

Within the CODM specifically:

Any given control (stop/coupler/piston/etc.) can be displayed in up to two places (via the CustomDisplayN_... attributes), even on the same display page.

The only other things that might possibly be applicable would be ShortcutPiston objects.

(Arbitrary switches and linkages aren't possible within the CODM.)
