  • Capi needed??

    I'm trying to change the iTunes player state from within a script. Reason being that setting the state to pause when it is paused starts it playing.
    I can change the state from a script, but it only changes the icon and doesn't stop iTunes if it is playing.
    I suspect I will need some sort of Capi shizzle??
    Any ideas or help would be much appreciated.
    Cheers

    Code:
    sub main (ByVal jwdeviceid As string)
    'iTunes player state device id is 7
    'device value 4 is playing
    'device value 3 is paused
      dim dimlevel
      dimlevel = hs.devicevalue (jwdeviceid)
       if dimlevel = 4 then
      dimlevel = 3
      hs.SetDeviceValuebyref(jwdeviceid, dimlevel, true)
      hs.WriteLog("JW", "iTunes set to Paused Variables are : iTunes device - " & jwdeviceid & " : iTunes device state code  - " & dimlevel)
      else
      dimlevel = 3
      hs.SetDeviceValuebyref(jwdeviceid, dimlevel, true)
      hs.WriteLog("JW", "iTunes wasn't playing Variables are : iTunes device - " & jwdeviceid & " : iTunes device state code  - " & dimlevel)
      end if
     
    End Sub

    Hi J,

    Likely does need CAPI. Can you post a screen shot of the Status Graphics tab of the device and I can likely help.

    Cheers

        Hi J, the picture is not showing up. You can directly insert it into your post rather than linking to a picture on another site.

              Ok, try something like this:

              Code:
              hs.CAPIControlHandler(hs.CAPIGetSingleControl(CDbl(jwdeviceid),true,"Play",false,true))
              And if that doesn't work try changing the first true to a false.

              Cheers

                  You're welcome. Yes, the CAPIGetSingleControl command can be used for most devices and once you understand how it works, it's pretty easy to use.

                  You can likely get away with this as well:

                  Code:
                  hs.CAPIControlHandler(hs.CAPIGetSingleControl(jwdeviceid,true,"Play",false,true))
                  Cheers and happy new year!
