Voice Commands to do same functionality on different views

Voice Commands to do same functionality on different views

I have an experience with multiple views.  Each view has multiple buttons that call different functions (all of which work as clicks) I am adding the voice commands for the Hololens and I am wondering if it's possible to have 1 voice command defined but have it call a different function based off of which view it's in at the time. Is this possible? I am assuming with js it is but I am not sure how.

 

I.e I have a Confirm Tare button and a Confirm Weight button on 2 different views.  Each button will call a function that handles visibility of the next button, within their respective views. The service isn't exactly the same, only because of studio ID's of the components in each view. 

 

thanks!

Re: Voice Commands to do same functionality on different views

Hi @hcterry ,

according to the question:

" it's possible to have 1 voice command defined but have it call a different function based off of which view it's in at the time."   so, I think this is possible and could be easy achieved.

In this case you have simple to use always the same function for a specific command - example "TEST" and every time override this function on view load time or also by other event - for example executing "CHANGETEST"

The following example:

project with 2 views on HoloLens : Home and SECOND_VIEW

1.) I defined 2 Application Event/Command: TEST and CHAGETEST:

 

2019-10-28_14-53-22.jpg

 

2.) then I defined in the Home.js the following code:

 

////////////////////
$scope.VERSION=0;

//this function will change the function TEST - switch between version 0-1
$scope.app.CHANGETEST= function() {
if($scope.VERSION==0)
{$scope.VERSION=1
$scope.app.TEST=function()
{console.log("called Test VERSION 0 in HOME go to SECOND_VIEW");
twx.app.fn.navigate("SECOND_VIEW")
};

}
else
{$scope.VERSION=0
$scope.app.TEST=function()
{console.log("called Test VERSION 1 in HOME go to SECOND_VIEW");
twx.app.fn.navigate("SECOND_VIEW")
};
}

}

////////////////////
$scope.$on('$ionicView.afterEnter', function() {

//when we enter the view we define the app.TEST function

$scope.app.TEST=function()
{console.log("called Test in HOME go to SECOND_VIEW");
twx.app.fn.navigate("SECOND_VIEW")
}

});

 

So here are 2 important points:

-we will define the callback function app.TEST for the  "TEST" command/ event when we enter the Home view.

-The CHAGETEST will modify the definition of the callback function app.TEST

- when we call TEST here we will enter the view SECOND_VIEW. In Second VIEW we will override the function again by other definition (in SECOND_VIEW.js):

 

$scope.VERSION=0;
$scope.app.CHANGETEST= function() {
if($scope.VERSION==0)
{$scope.VERSION=1
$scope.app.TEST=function()
  {console.log("called Test VERSION 0 in HOME go to SECOND_VIEW");
   twx.app.fn.navigate("Home")
  }

}
else
{$scope.VERSION=0
$scope.app.TEST=function()
{console.log("called Test VERSION 1 in HOME go to SECOND_VIEW");
   twx.app.fn.navigate("Home")
  }
}
}
////////////////////
$scope.$on('$ionicView.afterEnter', function()  {
  $scope.app.TEST=function()
  {console.log("called Test in SECOND VIEW");
   twx.app.fn.navigate("Home")
  }
})

 

Here I used nearly the same code as in the Home.js with the significant difference that when I call app.TEST it will navigate back to Home view.

Here this example should demonstrate that we can:

- use a VIEW specific command

-we can override by runtime the functionality what the command /event do by simple overriding the callback function definition.

Re: Voice Commands to do same functionality on different views

The only reason I haven't accepted the solution is because I ran out of time and didn't get a chance to test this. I only had 1 day with the Hololens and I had to get other things working first. I will keep this for next time though.

 

Thank you!
