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. (:

COMEventClass error

I've changed the Setup routine in iTunes/__init__.py to this: def Setup(self, plugin, eventHandler): self.plugin = plugin self.eventHandler = eventHandler try: win32com.client.gencache.Rebuild() self.comInstance = win32com.client.gencache.EnsureDispatch("iTunes.Application") win32com.client.WithEven...

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...

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

that error is caused by a permissions issue. this could be because you ran eventghost as an administrator and it created files in %appdata%\EventGhost\gen_py that have administrative privileges assigned to them. or something along those lines. You can try adding some exception catching for the Attr...

I noticed that this error is appearing when I (re)start EventGhost with iTunes running (so the plugin can find it): Exception AttributeError: AttributeError("COMEventClass instance has no attribute '_olecp'",) in <bound method COMEventClass.__del__ of <win32com.client.COMEventClass instance at 0x08F...

Re: Trying to add Show QR Code action raises an error

Which answer will encourage you to fix it? :lol: I've been trying to test every action that I can as I go about documenting the various plugins. ( System was a beast, just because it has so many actions available.) This is how I discovered that Show QR Code is broken. Somebody obviously saw a point ...

Trying to add Show QR Code action raises an error

I don't know if this is a beta-specific bug, but since I'm running the beta (actually RC) version, thought I should post it here. I can't add a "Show QR Code" action to a macro. When I select it from the Add Action dialog and click OK, I get the following error dump (this is with debugging informati...

Re: Common problems and their solutions sticky?

Thank you for all the feedback! I've incorporated it all. Feel free to edit the wiki pages yourself with further updates. Now, let's get back to the troubleshooting aspect. Can you give me one or two links to common problems, and/or common troubleshooting steps, that you'd like to see wikified? I'll...

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

There was a new iTunes update today, and with this update, this plugin is no longer receiving events. It can't tell when the song changes, or when someone's trying to close it (so you'll be warned that something's using the scripting interface). Controlling iTunes from this plugin still seems to wor...

Re: Help: repeating an action as long as a key is held down

I got this working with the default Keyboard plugin, and thought I should report back. Repeat Macro did the trick for me, in that I could hold down the H key and it'd generate a string of "a d" presses as long as I held it down, and stop when I let go. I still got a string of "hhhhhh..." presses in ...

Re: Common problems and their solutions sticky?

I've been occasionally working on the wiki since the above discussion. I haven't started refactoring the main page yet. That I think is going to be the biggest help, because we can use it to give people a better idea not only of what EventGhost is, but what it can do for them. My work has been focus...

Re: Directory Watcher

Is it possible to watch multiple directories? I can add another plugin, but what do I put in for the Event? You're right, that you'll have to load multiple copies of the plugin. The second instance of the plugin will create events such as `DirectoryWatcher2.Updated`. This is handy if you want to do...

Re: Considering a new TV but I want to use EG to control it

I have a Samsung TV, and I've recently started using EventGhost to control it (via LAN). I'm not unhappy with it. Like kgschlosser says, some of the most powerful stuff isn't accessible, but I can send remote codes to it which don't appear on the remote control that shipped with it, and it still wor...

Re: SamsungSmartTV

Okay, so you sent me here, so I figured I'd share my thoughts here. The plugin configuration dialog only asks for the specifics for one device, which I found a bit odd. I see that when you add an action, you get to specify a different IP address and port and model number and stuff, which technically...
