Menssage after command...

Post by MaxWhite » Mon Sep 03, 2018 7:02 pm

Hello! I want to know if it is possible to display a message after the command executed when I click a mouse button on XBMC ...
For example: Button 4: {Ctrl} {Alt} R <Messege>

Thanks and sorry wasting your precious time with this stupid person...

Hi, its not wasting my time, but unfortunately, its not something that is currently possible...
I will consider it as a feature request, but a little more information might be useful - where would you want the messages to appear etc?

VBS + simulate key?
{CTRL}{RSHIFT}{ESCAPE} {RUN:"C:\text.vbs"}
text.vbs
WScript.Echo "Hello" & vbCrLf & "World!"
Other VBS example:

Interesting usage of calling message as {CTRL}{RSHIFT}{ESCAPE} calls task manager :) That's good solution though to run some file by XMBC, but I wished some of them were triggered faster than up to 1 second. In this case that's no matter, but wehn I run some quick scripts while I am clicking quite much, then half or a quarter of second is too long for multiple clicks within short period :(

Do are you saying some sort of on screen display would be useful, or that you would prefer scripts run quicker?
I cant do much about speeding up the {run} command as that relies on the speed of Windows launching processes and the process itself!

Also I expect that the original idea does not want a message box that has to be cleared by clicking a button but an 'on screen display' style that shows a message for a short time (and is automatically replaced by something else if another button is pressed) but do correct me if I'm wrong!

I only noticed that RUN (that btw I suggested to introduce to XMBC :)) is good for some tasks like this one, but experienced when used often during day, even once a minute can be annoying for running short scripts. I know it's Windows thing so that can not be changed by XMBC. The only what I meant by occasion of alike question is that RUN should be avoided to do that I do untill there's not better way to do the same faster.

OK just trying to judge how useful people would find an onscreen message display... I get the feeling that its not going to be used very much (so I wouldn't want to spend too long on it - not that I think it would take a long time :)) but I don't know, maybe others would find it useful!
