  • Send a keystroke to network PC running Message_Client

    Hi Christian,

    I'd like to know how to send a keystroke to a client PC running Message_client? The goal is to kill a screensaver upon disarming the security system with the LCD panel in the hallway.

    Appreciate your response,

    Simon

    Simon,
    PHP Code:
    hs.Plugin("Message Server").keys "z"""true"client name"

        With a similar topic, is it possible to surpress the popup window but rather sending all information to baloon type message in the system tray? Upon receiving phone call, I will broadcast out caller information to all clients but for one, I use the MainLobby software and I'd like to surpress the popup but I still want Message_Client running so I can send a keystroke to disable the screensaver.

        Thanks,
        Simon

          Simon,

          You will need to explain a little bite more how you send that message to your clients.

          I would not send the message to that client by script or set the time before closing the message box to 1 sec.

          Regards,
          Christian

            Hi Christian,

            I have an event set up in HS, triggered by on Caller ID available. Under Message Server tab, I have the following information:

            Client name, IP... -> blank
            Message Type: Info, Message Box ticked
            Title: Caller ID Info
            Message:

            Incoming call from:<br>
            <b>$CallerIDName.</b><br><br>
            Number: <b>$CallerIDNumber.</b><br><br>
            <a href="<A href="http://%HS_SERVER%:1500/phoneWeb?page=callerid">CallerID</a">http://%HS_SERVER%:1500/phoneWeb?page=callerid">CallerID</a>

            This way, all clients connected would get a message box. However, I'd like to somehow exclude one connected client.

            Thanks,
            Simon
