View Full Version : Is the API suitable and available for this?

June 3rd, 2003, 10:39 AM
I am currently using 0.98, but use nothing more sophisticated than Girder commands. It is proving very successful.

Separately, I have almost finished a PocketPC "program recording scheduler" app for the Nebula DigiTV, accessed over (wireless) LAN. This is curently a dialog-based app. However, I want to "integrate" it into the existing remote control use experience.

Can I assume that it will be possible for me to "wrap" my dialogs into a NetRemote module DLL using the new API, so that it can be invoked in-proc by a button-press? What version of NetRemote would I need for this? When and where would I find the necessary API? Or should I hold off for a while as things are still in too much flux?

Hi Brian,

The API is -definitely- suitable for this, and your application sounds perfect to wrap as a NetRemote driver.

You'll need 0.99 RC5 (to be released in the next few days), and the SDK that will be available at this time.

I anticipate the SDK staying consistent for a bit, but plan to keep in touch with developers and make them aware of any changes that may happen.

It will be possible for you to wrap the dialogs into a DLL, although further integration might be a little cleaner. We can talk once the SDK is released about things you could do.

Thanks Brian. I'll make sure and keep you in the loop.

Thanks for the info - I await the SDK with great interest.

Hi Avid.

The SDK is available here (http://www.netremote.org/dl/NR_SampleDriver.zip).

I anticipate a lot of revisions of the sample to make it easy to read/understand, so please shoot me an email if you have any questions.
