    Default send notifications to smartphones

    Hi all
    i am playing around with a program called Growl and one on my Iphone called prowl
    there is a command line that can be used to send notifications eg
    ( growlnotify this-is-a-test ) this works great using (file execute) with
    (parameter) this-is-a-test

    what i would like to be able to do is send the state of a variable to my phone

    any ideas ?

    Paul,

    You should be able to create a script action for the Caller ID event. The payload variables will contain the Caller ID data.

    Hi Rick
    my lua skills suck to say the least

    i tried this but no go...some guidence would be great

    Name = pld1
    os.execute ('c:\growlnotify\growlnotify.exe','Name')
    i tried this several different ways

    this will also work with android phones......
    it is quicker to get notifications sent than text messages !

    My best guess is:
    os.execute (string.format("c:\growlnotify\growlnotify.exe %s", Name))

    If you run a lua script:
    os.execute ("c:\growlnotify\growlnotify.exe This-is-a-test")
    Does that work? If not, there is something else wrong. If it does work, then there is something wrong with my syntax My next guess would be:
    os.execute (string.format([[c:\growlnotify\growlnotify.exe %s]], Name)).

    Does that work?
    No

    what will work is a girder action os/execute
    c:\growlnotify\growlnotify.exe
    parameter this-is-a-atest

    os.execute ("c:\\growlnotify\\growlnotify.exe This-is-a-test")
