Access 'Show Controls' in the properties via script


I’m sure this has been asked before but could someone be so kind in giving me a example of how I would access this please. Is it through a reference? I basically want to turn(show) the controls on and off for a video.


Hi @frank.glennon,

Thanks for the question.

I’m not sure I completely follow, would you like to access the visibility property of an object within a script node?


Are you trying to show controls to play/pause/restart a video?

Please note, the Video Player subsymbol (streamed) comes with a property for turning on/off the controls, whereas locally hosted videos (dragged directly into Studio) need there controls to be set up manually.

Hope this helps.



Hello George,

Thanks for replying.

Yes, I’m trying to access the show controls property of a video via a script.
