The Art-Net Snapshot Button is designed to record a full Art-Net DMX universe state, with the ability to record from Universe A and output to Universe B.
A click on the Art-Net Snapshot Button and the captured Art-Net values are send out to the specified Universe.

Please note:
In order to use the Art-Net Snapshot Button Art-Net Input and Art-Net Output needs to be enabled in the Connection Manager!

To create an Art-Net Snapshot widget choose "Widgets > Buttons > ArtNetSnapshot". The mouse cursor changes to a crosshairs icon, indicating the create mode. With a left-click anywhere on the empty main background window you add the selected widget to the current page. Left-click again if you like to add one more. To quit the create mode, you can switch to the run mode with [F8], where you can use all widgets. Most widgets however need to be set up first.

To edit the Art-Net Snapshot parameters simply right-click on the Art-Net Snapshot Button and choose the menu entry "Item Properties", press [ALT+P] whilst the mouse is hovering above it or double-click on it when being in the edit / move mode ([F9]). The Art-Net Snapshot Property Dialog opens up.

Fix:

The Art-Net Snapshot Property dialog is divided into three sections: Art-Net Snapshot Settings, Button Style and Script.

Art-Net Snapshot Settings

Subnet and Universe:
Enter the Subnet and Universe the Art-Net values should be captured from.

DMX Link Out:
Check this option if you want to play out the Art-Net values via the DMX Link 1 Port Output device. Please note that the device has to be enabled in the Connection Manager.

Fade Time:
If you want to fade to the Art-Net values stored in this button instead of sending them out abruptly, you may define a fade time here (in sec).

[Capture Art-Net]:
Press [Capture Art-Net] and the current state of the specified Universe will be recorded.
To send out these Art-Net values on the same Universe, close the Item Properties dialog and just press the Art-Net Snapshot Button.
To send out these Art-Net values on a different Universe, do it as following:
Enter the Subnet and Universe the Art-Net values should be captured from.
Press [Capture Art-Net] and the current state of the specified Universe will be recorded.

Now change the Art-Net settings to the Universe on which you want to send out the recorded Art-Net values (do NOT press [Capture Art-Net] again) and press [OK] or [Apply] at the bottom of the Item Properties dialog. Close this dialog and click on the Art-Net Snapshot Button.

Button Style

In the Button Style you may set up the button's text as well as its font and colour.
Three images can be assigned to the different states of the button.
“Release” refers to no click.
“Click” is on press.
“Highlight” can be used to draw a png with alpha over either the click or release image.

You may also set the Buttons Height and Width.

Script

In the Script section you may enter commands to be executed. You may use the drop-down list and the "Add" button or type directly in the text field. The topic Script Language explains this in more detail.
See here a list of all commands. These ones are available to control the Art-Net Snapshot Button itself.
