Sharing dispState value incorrect


#1

I am trying to use the result of “zStatus Sharing” to determine the instructions the ZR is showing on the screen so my controller app can display the same instructions. However, the “dispState” value seems to be incorrect sometimes.

One example:

  1. Start a presentation-only meeting and display laptop sharing instructions via: "zCommand Dial Sharing Duration: 30 Displaystate: Laptop Password: ".
  2. Send “zStatus Sharing”.
  3. Observe in the response that “dispState” is “None” even though instructions are being shown on the Zoom Room display.

This seems like a bug to me. Does anyone have any thoughts, workarounds, or timeline for a fix?

I am running Beta 15 on a Mac Mini.

Thanks,
Steve

We do in fact have a bug. Actually, it’s a pair of bugs; one of the sharing notifications is missing on the mac, and the other sharing notification is missing on Windows: We’re working on these:

ZOOM-68586: WinZR: Sharing message missing

For the ZAAPI CLI, you get:

*e SharingState state: Receiving

But you don’t get:

*s Sharing isDirectPresentationConnected: on

ZOOM-68587: MacZR: Sharing message missing

For the ZAAPI CLI, you get:

*s Sharing isDirectPresentationConnected: on

But you don’t get:

*e SharingState state: Receiving

It looks like there has been an update. In our latest code base, the situation for Mac and Windows is:

For the ZAAPI CLI, you get:

*s Sharing isDirectPresentationConnected: on

But you don’t get:

*e SharingState state: Receiving

Our ship date slipped to January 27th, so we’ll consider pushing out a beta 16 with this update.

Thanks!

You’re mentioning '*s Sharing IsDirectPresentationConnected" and “*e SharingState state”, although the problem I’m seeing is with “*s Sharing dispState”. Are the issues related?

Hello, we are currently investigating this issue.

Any info on if you were able to reproduce this issue and if there will be a fix in the next beta release?

Thanks,

We fixed this item. There is one other item we are trying to fix, and we may have a beta 16.

Also: Yesterday we pushed out a new version of the desktop clients for Mac/Windows/Linux; the look and feel is quite different.
