Re: Best way to use persistent variables?

So, for the time being, I'm setting eg.globals to Webserver persistent values on EG startup. Then, any time I need to change the variables, I'm set both the global and the persistent value. This allows me to use the globals but make sure they retain their value through a startup. I'm still hoping th...

Best way to use persistent variables?

I'm needing to save variables and access them even after a restart. I use to use pVar and it worked great, but it seems to be incompatible with RC6. Here's what I get when I load the plugin: 11:06:03 AM Error starting plugin: pVar 11:06:03 AM Traceback (most recent call last) (0.5.0-rc6): 11:06:03 A...

Thunderbird Actions?

Does anyone know of a way to integrate Thunderbird (email client) with Eventghost? Specifically, I'd like to notify EG whenever Thunderbird receives a new email and use the subject as the event.

Re: Send Keystrokes not emulating shift properly

Thanks! So, it looks like it might be an issue with the program. After trying your method, it still would not work. I then decided to try the same command in Illustrator (which opens the place dialog). It worked great. Still not working as expected in my targeted app. Is there an alternative method ...

Send Keystrokes not emulating shift properly

I am using Send Keystrokes in conjunction with Find Window and Bring To Front in order to send keystrokes to a VOIP program. Specifically, I'm wanting to send Ctrl+Shift+P to the window. When I do, the program only detects Ctrl+P (which does a different action). I've tried the different options for ...

Re: event ghost not starting with windows 10

One thing I had to do was toggle Eventghost to "on" in Startup Apps. Open your start menu, start typing "startup," and open Startup Apps. You'll see EventGhost.exe with a toggle switch. Make sure it's set to on. This fixed the issue for me.

PDF Creator based on fdfgen?

Sorry, I'm not sure if this is possible. Does anyone know if fdfgen, which is based on Python, can be created into a plugin for EG?

https://github.com/ccnmtl/fdfgen

I think it would be great to auto generate PDFs based on data in EG.

Any way to print files with EG?

I'm hoping to automate printing of PDF files by using directory watcher. However, I could not find a way to actually get the files to print when they are found. Is there a way to get this set up? I assume simple keyboard shortcuts could be used, but that seems a bit messy. Are there plugins to direc...

Re: Webserver

You shouldn't use #id's for multiple items. Use "class" instead. Id's are unique, classes are meant to apply to multiple items. I've got it set up so each interface is contained in their own unique div with a unique ID. So, I have IDs of: #RemoteCable #RemoteStreaming #RemoteChromecast etc. It was ...

Re: Webserver

Wow! Thanks! That's a huge help to get me started!!! By the way guys, I recommend a website called https://gonative.io/ . It lets you create a native mobile app from a website. I set up a DDNS and pointed gonative.io to my ddns-server-url:port# of my remote, and now I have an app on my phone/tablets...

Re: Webserver

Thanks for the tip! While I'm pretty comfortable with HTML, I'm only slightly familiar with JS and have no experience with Websockets. Do you know how to get the initial connection with EG working? And how do I pass events to the webpage? I think what I could do is contain each remote interface into...
