    Default "Quick note" idea..

    Would it be possible to create a screen with an text input box that I could enter some info and hit a button and have it send the info my a defined email address or maybe an option for a couple pre-defined email addresses?

    I think this would be handy as often when watching tv I find myself brainstorming and need to take a quick note. Anyone else have a solution for this??

    This could be done pretty easily with Lua via the socket class. You could create a text entry box (using the NRBasic component) with a variable, and then a submit button which could execute the Lua.

    Thinking about this a little more...

    Goals..
    - Have NR page that would display the todo list.
    - Have a text input that would add to the list.
    - At a defined time have girder send the list as an email.
    - Clear the the NR list once it is sent to email.


    So how could we maintain a list? In a file on the PC? In a girder table?
    Input sounds pretty easy..
    I think displaying the list would be pretty easy.
    Saw a download for Girder emailing.

    Anyone with some experience want to help? My lua skills are bad..

    Note that you can include Girder if you like, but this could also be done all from NetRemote.

    Still struggling with some issues upgrading to Girder 4.x but this will be one of my first new projects. Hope to see more input or help on this. I would plan to utilize both Girder and Netremote.

    Thanks..

    If you incorporated Girder you could then access it via the webserver to.

    Good idea.. Access from work, maybe wap (cell phone) too?

    Would not be unreasonable. I dunno about editting via wap. I have certainly access my system via wap in the past, but never developed it.
