Hi Kime,

The virtual device buttons and sliders send TCP payloads to an ip address and port.

You can construct almost any package but HCL does not allow you to modify the package during runtime with one exception: The variable _sliderValue_ is replaced by the sliders current value when sending a package. There may be other variables but they are not documented.

"Commands" as you describe are target application dependent and it seems you are looking for XBMC commands in this case. There are recent threads about that in this forum.

  • Thanks. The command is idd from a XBMC device.

    I'm looking to get this a step furter, like update Skype, lync, dyndns, send Twitter/facebook msg... with a scene.

    For the moment my computer is always on to update my dyndns, but theres an api, its just a http request; with i can shedule with a scene. There for i need to get some stuff done before the command

    Please login or register to see this code.

    I've noticed that scenes activiteit doesn't show in the event panel. So updating a twitter account is an option to get these.

    EDIT : Sending api/http request to twitter/facebook isn't that simple anymore... damm

    Yes any service requiring more than basic authentication over http is a problem. https is not possible with HCL. cookies or session tokens are also not possible. Even the dyndns fails because you need to send you current IP so it can't be hardcoded in the virtual device.

    Put up proxy server to handle all these complexities for you. A Synology NAS or similar will do fine.

    You can then trigger the actions from HCL but without dealing with all the complexities inside HCL.
