That should work; once you have learned the codes, you can assign them to buttons using NetRemote Designer. When you load the resultant CCF in NetRemote, you will be able to trigger the codes by clicking on the buttons.

Although there is some learning curve involved, NetRemote Designer lets you create new buttons and associate functionality with them, so you're not limited to what is already provided. NetRemote Designer is a stand-along program to graphically layout screens, and is a companion tool to NetRemote.

You're correct that the CCF is just the file associated with your layout.
