    How are you, Sir?

    Hoping to ask a small favor. Do you have the software that came with your sign? I can't find that tiny CD that came with mine and was hoping I can download it from you.
    Please send me an email and I will provide you with a link.

    BTW, the REAL manufacturer is:

    And on this site, there is a LOT of information on it.

    Yes, Sir, that works - THANK YOU!!

    Starting to learn the syntax. I have a friend of mine trying to make this into a "plugin" DOT NET style for me. If I can get it working, I will send it over to you if you are interested.

    OK,

    I've just corrected the last bit of code as it was wrong.

    Try this:

    PHP Code:
    Sub Main(ByVal Parm As Object)
     
    Dim Text As String ""
    Dim CIDNumber As String ""
    'CIDNumber = hsp.CIDNumber(1)
    CIDNumber = "5551212"
    Text="Call from{n}{sym5}" & CIDNumber & "{pause2}"
    hs.runex ("jon00LEDMessageInput.vben","Main","|" & Text & "||")
    end sub

    No, Sir. This does not display. I don't even get the beep that says the sign got it. In the other script, the CID one you posted above, I do get the beep but nothing is displayed.

    If you still have DisplayCID.vb (from my earlier post) in your scripts directory, change the code within to the following:

    PHP Code:
    Sub Main(ByVal Parm As Object)
    Dim Text As String ="Goodbye Cruel World"
    hs.runex ("jon00LEDMessageInput.vben","Main","|" Text "||")
    end sub 
    Does this display the message "Goodbye Cruel World"?

    In general, I am able to send messages all ok with the package. I am NOT able to send any variables like status changes to devices and such.

    So what have you got the display to do so far with this script?

    Hey Jon,

    Unfortunately, no dice. I tried with and without the line.

    Any other thoughts?

    Wow, you are the first person ever to ask about programming this. I have not looked at this for a few years now.

    Try the following VB.Net script (call it DisplayCID.vb) and try running it.

    If it displays OK, you can get it to trigger on a Phone call and remove the 5551212 line.

    PHP Code:
    Sub Main(ByVal Parm As Object)
     
    Dim Text As String ""
    Dim CIDNumber As String ""
    'CIDNumber = hsp.CIDNumber(1)
    CIDNumber = "5551212"
    Text="Call from{n}{sym5}" & CIDNumber & "{pause2}{clr}Call from{n}{sym5}" & CIDNumber & "{pause2}{clr}"
    hs.runex ("jon00LEDMessageInput.vben","Main","|" & Text & "||")
    end sub

    Re: Jon00 LED Message Sign

    Hi Jon,

    Hard to believe I have had this sign for three years, always wanted to control it with hs and, never knew about this - you are awesome!

    When I first got the sign I posted the protocol I got from the manufacturer somewhere on here and was told their plug would only work with beta brite. You have reverse engineered it, I am in awe of you sir! This works flawlessly for my sign and setup was a breeze.

    The manufacturer of this sign is in China, I got the sign at CES in Vegas and they do make it for several people.

    Quick question, I am trying to do this:

    Phone rings
    Hsphone gets called is
    Your script turns sign on
    Displays "call from 5551212"
    Holds caller I'd on display for 3 seconds then repeats

    This is how far I got, can you help me finish it?

    ("Main","CID")

    Where in the ini I put in the scratchpad this line:

    CID=Call from{n}{sym5}

    That is as far as I have gotten. I appreciate any help to get any help to get unstuck.

    I do not think so.

    Google NS-500RG2 and you may find something.

    I haven't given up on this yet. But it seems I'm too late to order it from CPC.

    Does anybody know if this one works:

    ... or can direct me to one that does?

    Sure - I hope you succeed.

    I think I've mapped the Norwegian alphabet so things should show correctly for you
