( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Long, long ago, I figured out a way to control winamp via an X-10 remote control (Old Post). Recently, I have been contemplating using pieces of this code to control Yahoo's Launchcast, so I don't have to sit in front of the PC to listen. I'd like to rate, skip, play, pause, etc. by sending commands to the Launchcast window.

As the X-10 code *should be* reusable, the only issue, my dear monks, is that I am at a complete loss when it comes to sending commands to the Activex controls in the Launchcast window. Can you suggest anything that may kick this project into gear?

Thanks in advance.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
