Reset "Adjust Item Value" via the program

It would be nice to be able to reset any adjust group parameter via a Reset Channel in the program. (Text, Integer, Function, Digital) Currently the only way I know how to reset a channel is by a person physically pushing reset on that adjust group.

What I am trying to achieve is I want a user to be able to name an item via a Text Parameter. Once the user has it named, I want them to be able to reset it back to the default later on via a virtual input on a display. Reason behind this is I have 40 Text Parameters I need to reset to default with one simple action.





There is an example file in the solution library that describes how to achieve an automatic reset of an adjustable channel. But unfortunately this solution solution does not work for channels of type text.


For all other value types, there is a solution library file that installs here:

C:\Users\<username>\Documents\IQAN Files\Solution LibraryParameter reset automatic.ida3


The trick is to use a MEM channel as the adjust item, and have the parameter channel as the input to the MEM in order to get the desired value type
