Checking if an overlay is ending

Using PING ${cpl...} What Control Command Macro do you use to check if an overlay is ending or its current time left? I've found in the manual micros for waiting, shown and playing, but not for time or ending.

Such direct macro does not exist.
But you might use the ${timecodemaintext} macro together with the ${overlayplayerstatus} macro?!

Note, that all macros are listed in the Appendix of the User Manual.

I checked ${timecodemaintext} and thought that was only for the decks. Works perfectly. Thanks!

By the way, no crashes yet using PING to get the needed info, so must be something to do with that other command.

Good to know!
I already optimized that command on v4.1.5.1.
