Detailed Description

Extended Plug-in interface IEditController for a component.

A Representation based on XML is a way to export and structure, group Plug-ins parameters for a specific remote (could be hardware or software rack (like quickcontrols)).
It allows to describe more precisely each parameter (what is the best matching to a knob, different titles lengths matching limited remote display,...).
See an Example.

  • A Representation is composed of Pages (this means that to see all exported parameters the user has to navigate through the pages).
  • A Page is composed of Cells (for example 8 Cells per page).
  • A Cell is composed of Layers (for example a cell could have a knob, a display and a button which are 3 Layers).
  • A Layer is associated to a Plug-in parameter using the ParameterID as identifier:
    • it could be a knob with a display for Title and/or value, this display uses the same parameterId, but it could an another one.
    • Switch
    • link which allows to jump directly to a subpage (an another page)
    • more... See Vst::LayerType


This Representation is implemented as XML text following the Document Type Definition (DTD): http://dtd.steinberg.net/VST-Remote-1.1.dtd

Example

Here an example of what should be passed in the stream of getXmlRepresentationStream:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE vstXML PUBLIC "-//Steinberg//DTD VST Remote 1.1//EN" "http://dtd.steinberg.net/VST-Remote-1.1.dtd">
