Is anyone using Girder (on an HTPC) to control DILARD (the D-ILA projector tool)?


I cant for the life of me make it respond to the Girder keystroke commands. Whats the correct target?


Thanks,


Andy K.

Hi Andy,


I have Girder and an IRMan, but am simply using an IR keyboard input and Pronto for automation with Dilard right now. I just found it easier. Nothing against Girder or the IRMan.


The Dilard keystrokes are global, system-wide keystrokes. No matter what application is active, pressing the keystroke (or remote control button) will send the appropriate command straight to the projector.


I believe that the global keystrokes are operating on a hardware interrupt, so it is possible that the Win 32 API will only send the message if an actual key is pressed (or the appearance of a key, as in the case of an IR keyboard/Pronto).


Girder may have a way to send a "global" keystroke (without a target), but I never got that involved with it. That's what you're looking for, though.

Hi Mark,


I got it to work with Girder - Girder has an option to send to foreground task, which seems to work (Since, presumably you are intercepting *every* task including the foreground).


I dont have an IR keyboard, so I have to route things through IRMan/Girder.


Thanks for the advice,


Andy K.
