This turns out to be because the current folder for files is the composition's location when using the Vuo Editor, but the desktop (I think) when running as a standalone App. So my App was not finding my JSON file and using the most recent values. If I add the full path to my file name the App finds my JSON file and reads changing values as expected.
'Is Time of Day After' fails to test correctly if 'Start Time' is not specified as midnight. e.g. the following occurs:
Testing if 0947 is before 1659: True
Testing if 0947 is before 1700: False
Testing if 1017 is before 1659: True
Testing if 1017 is before 1700: False
I'm trying to write individual lines to a log file but can't see how to start a new line for each. I've tried adding a 'Make Text from Control Code' newline to the end of the text - and the ASCII char directly - but each addition stays on a single line. Thanks for any help.
I'm using 'Fetch JSON Tree' triggered by 'Fire Periodically' to read preferences from a file that can change as the composition runs. This works fine when run within the Vuo Editor, but when compiled to a standalone App the values do not reflect the changing file state. I'm guessing they are cached at some point.
Is this a legit use case for these nodes? If so, any ideas on how to fix, i.e. flush the buffers? Thanks.
(A simple test composition has been added to show the problem.)
