Re: Detecting Exitcode of an external process

Bitmonster, thanks for the new version. Works like a charm :) jinxdone, thanks for the info. I did look at the Python docs which is where I got the syntax for spawn... etc. General question though - can any python command be called (after importing relevant module) or are there some security restric...

Detecting Exitcode of an external process

I need to execute a process and inspect the exitcode of the process. Is there a way to do that using System Execute action? Alternately, can a python command/script be written to do this using spawn... commands? (I tried to call os.spawnlp but get a error: module object has no attribute spawnlp). I'...

Re: Divide MYCONFIG.XML into multiple/separate loadable parts

Here's another vote for separate XML config files that can be "included" into the main config. I have been autogenerating XML for my X10 lights automation section and its a pain to copy/paste every time I make a change.

Re: A place for example configurations?

Hmm.. we probably could but using a forum would allow people to post comments, suggestions etc. Moreover a Wiki page isn't that easy to create / edit for folks not used to Mediawiki. I see a bunch of configurations people have posted in various threads. Having them under one forum heading will make ...

Re: Executing stuff on shutdown, plus standby stuff.

Ahh.. I played around with it. I could create an event called System.QuerySuspend . Associated Action was "Start Program" in the options I checked "Wait till application is terminated". My action does get triggered when system is suspended however there seems to be some timeout built in too because ...

Re: Executing stuff on shutdown, plus standby stuff.

Typically you would define a Macro.
The macro would be triggered by an event (whatever you specify - keypress etc.)
You would define multiple actions for the Macro (whatever action you want)
The last action would be System:ShutDown

Hope that helps

A place for example configurations?

Does it make sense to create say a top level discussion area in the forums where people can share configurations they have created? I just spent hours setting up all the macros/actions for my Onkyo receiver (thru USB-UIRT). Soon I'll be doing the same for my projector. This included scouring the net...

Re: iPhone optimized web remote control for Webserver plugin

Thanks for posting. This is a great start to setting my iPhone Remote. I have been playing with IUI myself to auto-generate HTML files for controlling X10 devices based on existing Activehome Pro configuration. Anyway, I had a few problems getting your files to work: 1) Relative pathnames to css and...
