The UNIQUE command will return instances from the given arguments that do not overlap for any part of the timeline. It is opposite of the OVERLAP command.
FORMAT: UNIQUE (label_name , label_name) or UNIQUE ($variable_name , $variable_name)
- label_name: Quoted text specifying the label you wish to count in the front timeline or instances. (Can be grouped using OR, AND, NOT)
- $variable name: A variable can store a letter or number or a selection of instances. It must absolutely start with the sign "$" and be followed by the name of the chosen variable. This name should be as short as possible to avoid errors, and should not contain spaces or start with a number.
$var = unique ("Scrum" , "Tackle")
Obtains all the instances which have the label "Scrum" and do not overlap with any instances containing the label "Tackle" in them and use it in the variable $var. It will also get all instances which have "Tackle" in them and do not overlap with any instance containing "Scrum". Displays the video of the instances stored in the variable $var using the SHOW command. To show the video, you must use a toggle button (create video), available with an Elite or Elite Review license.
$player = instances where row = "Gareth Edwards"
$action = instances where row = "SCRUM"
$display = unique ($player , $action)
show count $display and $action
Obtains all the instances of the row "Gareth Edwards" and uses it in the variable $player. Obtains the instances of the row "SCRUM" and uses it in the variable $action. With the UNIQUE command, obtain the instances of the variable $player which do not overlap with the instances of the variable $action (and vice versa) and use it in the variable $display. With the SHOW COUNT command, we display only the number of instances present both in $action and in $display.
