Getting Started — Part 6

quick start 6

Building a composition that counts.

Update: If you're trying to recreate this composition in Vuo 1.2.4 or later, hold down the Shift key (Vuo 1.2.6+) or Option key (Vuo 1.2.4 and 1.2.5) while connecting the cable from the Fire Periodically node's Fired port to the Count node's Increment port. This makes a thin (event-only) cable instead of the default thick (data+event) cable.

  1. Here we have a composition that, when we press "Run," counts as such, and now we'll walk through how to build it. I'll stop this one, close it, and select "File: New Composition."

  2. For a composition that counts, I know I want to make something happen on a regular basis. Every one second, I want to produce a number. Vuo automatically gives us the "Fire on Start" node, which will produce an event when I press the "Run" button, but for this composition, we want to fire more often than that.

Examining a composition that counts.

Update: If you're trying to recreate this composition in Vuo 1.2.4 or later, hold down the Shift key (Vuo 1.2.6+) or Option key (Vuo 1.2.4 and 1.2.5) while connecting the cable from the Fire Periodically node's Fired port to the Count node's Increment port. This makes a thin (event-only) cable instead of the default thick (data+event) cable.

  1. Let's take a look at another simple composition and learn a little more about how the parts and pieces of Vuo work. This is a composition that counts. When I press Run, it produces this: a blank window with numbers counting in the center. Let's slowly walk through what's happening, and as we go through it, we'll define a few more elements in the Vuo Editor.
