Re: Get result from "windows command"?

Ok the problem is nssm, specifically the release version "nssm 2.24 (2014-08-31)". Pre-release "nssm 2.24-87-g203bfae (2016-08-26)" works.

Crossing my fingers the pre-release is stable, and hey maybe there's other bug fixes.

Re: Multiple instances and/or service

Ok I got it working, it's not pretty though, and it's not multi instance. Only tested while logged in, need to check restarts and log offs. * User xml loads with an elevated startup folder shortcut to a bat file which stops the service and then loads event ghost with the user xml. Has a Main.OnClose...

Re: Get result from "windows command"?

Code: Select all

Code: Select all

S

Re: Multiple instances and/or service

you cannot run eventghost as a service. by definition from microsoft a service is unable to interact with a user. and what that means is that a service does not have the ability to interact with the UI. because the UI actually does not start until after the user logs in and a service starts before ...

Multiple instances and/or service

I have some macros I want running even on start up with no user logged in - which means running as a service. NSSM can do this and if that's all I needed to do I'd be ok. But I also have other macros that can't be run as a service because due windows limitations there's no (or no practical) way to g...

Get result from "windows command"?

I can't for the life of me figure out how to get what a "windows command" returns back into eventghost. I'm running 'nssm status <service_name>' and I expect something like 'SERVICE_RUNNING' as a result, but all I'm getting in eg.result is 'S'.

Re: Reverse Enable Exclusive

So of a group of macros you want the currently/most recently run macro to not trigger again? (I'm going to call these profiles, xbox. tv. ps3). I'd consider setting a variable and testing it when a macro is triggered, may be not as eloquent as preventing the trigger altogether but it would save on m...

Re: How you can help

I might not ever be able to help out but I recently came across EG and very much like it. I'm a slow learner with bad memory and little experience, I know enough to google things and podge stuff together - barely a script kiddie. Most of what I've done code/script wise is personal html/css, and that...

Re: Emulate Keystrokes - set input speed?

The goal is to get from a file name such as: "series.title.s01e23.blah.blah.blah.blah.file" to: "Series Title - S01E23 - Episode Title.file", with "Episode Title" copied and then cleaned up by EG. I use so many hotkeys because I don't always know the number of words in Series Title, or the numbering...

Re: Emulate Keystrokes - set input speed?

Would that get faster input speed than default? For what I'm doing I think I'd have to get the length of the string I want to type, and set up a loop to get and send each charactor.

Re: Emulate Keystrokes - set input speed?

I'm using this for text input not menus/hotkeys, so I switched to setting the string to the clipboard and sending {ctrl+v} instead.

Input speed still would be nice to have though :).

Emulate Keystrokes - set input speed?

Hi, I'm looking for a way to set the input speed for emulated keystrokes. I've searched everywhere and can't find any mention of it.

How to stop processing macro on varible matching value?

Why doesn't this work as a python command?: eg.plugins.EventGhost.StopProcessing() if eg.globals.ftp_status== 'Up' else plugins.EventGhost.DoNothing() It test ok but doesn't actually stop the macro. For now I guess I'll duplicate the test and jump to a null macro without return, but it would be easi...
