View Full Version : How to learn UP event

April 5th, 2003, 04:34 AM
Your ATI remote (at least with X10/ATI Remote plugin) generates btn_DOWN, btn_REPEAT and btn_UP events.

It is generally known how to learn btn_DOWN and btn_REPEAT events.
But sometimes it's usefull to use btn_UP event. I use it when I want to proceed "hold btn" action before "press btn" action (ex. Fast Forward and Next Track cmd) by single button.

Learn your ATI remote to generate a btn_UP event:

1. press a key
2. press Learn btn
3. release the key
4. be fast and process steps 1-3 before repeate event is generated

Maybe I've reinvented a wheel but still seems to me a bit square :roll:
If anyone knows how to do it easier, let me know.

For the X10/ATI plugin you can also use my exported definition file of all events.
So you can simply copy and paste the event you need.
Download it here. (http://www.bitmonster.com/girder/ATI-X10_Remote_Events.GML)

Editing the XML is the easiest way to learn the button up events. (I'm guessing that's how you generated your GML file with all the events.)

It's a bit difficult to edit the entire XML file, or at least I haven't found a really convenient editor.

But you can copy the individual girder event. Then paste it into notepad. Edit the event in notepad (change _DN to _RT or _UP), then paste it back into girder.

(If you have a lot to do you're probably better off importing bitmonsters gml file, copying the events you want and then deleting the extra group.)
