Re: More control over the Windows screensaver

create a macro with the Python Script action past the code below into the action. add the event Main.OnInit you can execute the script manually but after that it will run automatically each time EG starts. No additional software needed Thanks for sharing that! It's a pretty straightforward approach...

Re: More control over the Windows screensaver

For those who don't have the group policy editor, check out this page. Seems like you can enable it by running a simple batch file (no third party software will be used). For what my judgment's worth, it looks safe, but do open it yourself and look at it if unsure. Cool, thanks for sharing that! I ...

More control over the Windows screensaver

The System.Idle event is triggered by Windows believing the computer is idle, based on keyboard/mouse use. It doesn't take into account anything you might be doing on your computer that doesn't need input; specifically, watching videos. So if you tell EventGhost to do something when your computer is...

Re: Is there list of all eg.functions?

I do plan on documenting it on the wiki, but I haven't gotten that far yet. Sorry! If you can read Python, then you can get a feeling for what functions are available by poking into your EventGhost install directory. Look into your C:\Program Files (x86)\EventGhost directory (or wherever you install...

Re: New Location!!!

Hey there! Minor note about the wiki: the new host doesn't seem to have ImageMagick installed, or else MediaWiki can't find it. There's an error now when working with images that were uploaded after the move ( example ): "Error creating thumbnail: /bin/bash: /usr/bin/convert: No such file or directo...

Nice work! It's fun to see a problem like this and solve it for yourself, isn't it? (: Soon you'll be writing plugins too! :wink:

Re: Looking for Suggestions/Opinions.

That looks great! It's a lot more end-user friendly than eventghost.net is. For eg.net you mostly need to know what you want already, whereas eg.rocks is a good introduction to people who don't (yet) know they need this in their life. (:

Broadcaster: Broadcast action doesn't use default port

Working away on documenting more plugins, I've gotten to Broadcaster . The Broadcast action is supposed to use the plugin's configured port (default of 33333) if the action is configured to use port 0. In practice, this doesn't seem to be happening. I believe the bug is here : def bcastSend(self, ev...

Re: New iTunes plugin thread (latest version: v0.1.16)

also is there a pattern when this happens..?? I don't know if this is the answer you were hoping for, but it happens 100% of the time. It doesn't matter whether I open EG or iTunes first. It's even a problem after a reboot, which should resolve any problems involving COM connections not being close...

you can try this code self.comInstance = win32com.client.dynamic.EnsureDispatch("iTunes.Application") win32com.client.WithEvents(self.comInstance,self.eventHandler) That gives `Error attaching to iTunes COM instance: AttributeError("'module' object has no attribute 'EnsureDispatch'",)` If I change ...

Re: Pulling variables from HTTP webserver

You can access the `eg.event` object from Python to get more information about the event that triggered your macro/action. To answer your direct question, everything after the "HTTP." can be found in `eg.event.suffix`. I tried to document it all on this wiki page ; please let me know if you still ha...

Re: New Location!!!

Awesome work on the migration! Thanks for all the time and effort you've put into this. It's already paying off.

And thanks for adding those plugins for MediaWiki! They're not strictly necessary, but they sure are nice to have. (:

Re: switching between programs

My first thought on achieving this would be to create a folder containing three macros, one for each of the programs you want to run. Then you can use the Enable Item Exclusively action to turn on the one for the second program from the one for the first program, and so on. You'd need to add the sam...
