    Sep 05 2016 | 6:27 pm
    Hi,
    is there any forward way to hide and show elements on the Push 2 display?
    i´m building some kind of multicontroller with 8 channels each of which has a special set of controls.
    i found a few threads about this topic ut i couldn´t get it to work with the push, any help apprechiated.
    thanks a lot!

      i´d like to add that Push displays also elements that aren´t even included in the presentation, that´s weird.

      It doesn't have anything to do with Presentation view actually. The Parameter Visibility and Automapping Index parameters (available in the object inspector) dictate how GUI objects are assigned to Push. If you don't want parameters to be displayed on Push, set the Parameter Visibility to Stored Only (or Hidden), this also removes the parameter from Live's Automation.
      Alternatively, you can set the Automapping Index to -1 to remove that object from Push's Automapping, but still expose it to Live's Automation.
      Hope this helps!

      Hi Evan, thanks a lot.
      Setting the Automapping Index to -1 doesn´t do anything here, Push still displays the Element.
      Is there a way to adress the parameter visibilty for push via a script? i tried thispatcher which works fine for the *.amxd file itself but obviously not for the push display. i wouldn´t mind if if the settings that aren´t visible on the push wouldn´t get stored.
      thanks!

      You need to have at least one GUI object with automapping index of at least 1 (I assumed you would have this already, sorry for not mentioning it).
      If you don't mind not storing them, just set the visibility to hidden. Live won't even know they are there.
