Just to let everyone know, the works great after you tweak the levels.  Be sure to set the level in to the highest and things should work for you.

Thanks for all input.

PDW Support / Filter Question
« Last post by pcolvin on 18 Jan 2018, 02:52:19 »
I have a question on how filters work in PDW.  What I think I am seeing is that when the first filter in the list has it's criteria met, it stops going down the list of filters.

Here is what I am trying to do.  I have a list of filters that all have the same CAP code.  What I want to do is depending on the text in the filter play a different .wav file.  So if I have a filter with a CAP code of 0000357 and no text, but that filter runs a command and plays a sound, any filter below that in the list will not be run since the first in the list was triggered.

I think I can get things to work how I want but it looks like I would not use the CAP code, but just the text filter. 

Any help or suggestions from folks that have used filters in this way will be appreciated.

Hi djenn,

I've successfully added to and edited filters.ini by hand using Notepad and Notepad+. Note that the format and structure is tightly defined and mistakes can easily be made that cause it not to function  as expected.

My guess would be that VB is inserting additional characters in your filters.ini file.

I suggest you hexview a standard filters.ini and a VB produced filters.ini and see if there is a difference in the end of line and end of file characters.

Ok well, I'm trying to convert a list of cap codes and insert the converted list in the filters.ini file.
I use visual basic to do so.
But PDW refuses to start when i use it with this list, I thought it had something to do with special line endings in the .ini file and I checked with a hex editor but i cannot see any difference between the origional file and the file that i created so I wonder is there a special way to add filters (except  adding them in PDW by hand)?

After trying multiple different combinations and a hint I picked up from another post, I was able to get it working.  Below is how it is setup in PDW.

Code: [Select]
Enable Command file field = C:\UniServerZ\core\php71\php.exe

Arguments = C:\UniServerZ\www\inhouse-db.php "%7"

The trick was to put the path and PHP script file in the arguments as well as putting the %7 in quotes.

All is working great now.
