Re: Devices Layout - Suggestions

When you create a device, you are given a command folder called 'Commands'. Recommend you rename this, and add further command folders, one for each of your piece of equipment, just to keep them organised: In the screenshot, I've added some AppleTV commands, using the command prefix which keeps all...

Just use a button, but use the Transparent10x10 image in the Free Graphics Set/Buttons directory. That way you will see any text on the button, but the button image itself will be invisible.
Brilliant!

Coming from iRule, things are little different and this makes perfect sense!

Problem solved!

Re: Devices Layout - Suggestions

No worries - The GC-100 cannot control anything via IP. It controls things via infra-red, RS232 or relay, depending on the model. It is however controlled via IP, on port 4998, and you can send it IP commands from our app. The command can instruct it to emit an infra-red code out of any of its Infr...

Text as a button?

Hello,

I have done a search and looked through the software, but is there a way to have a "text" field as a button to activate or move you from screen to screen versus having a graphic with text in it?

I am going to assume, no, but I wanted to check in case I am missing something.

Re: Devices Layout - Suggestions

Correct. 1 device in the devices tree view for all the GC-100 IR ports. Within the GC-100 device, have all your IR commands, to the different IR output ports, and it is convenient, but not essential, to put them in their own command folders. If you were using the serial RS232 port of the GC-100 as ...

Re: Devices Layout - Suggestions

A device in the software is a single IP destination for the commands - a combination of IP address and port. So the only device you should have for all your GC-100 IR equipment is the GC-100 itself. You can organise your equipment commands within that device using command folders. Note the GC-100 o...

Re: How do you know which codeset for your device?

Ahhhh, thank you so much. I was using them already, but just for the individual codes not the entire set. That makes sense. Thank you.

How do you know which codeset for your device?

Hello, I have tried googling the above question but have been unable to find an answer. How do you know which "codeset" you are supposed to be using from the drop down list for your device? I could see testing it out, but some of the devices have a lot of different codesets so I was hoping someone m...
