I've been working on a Status application that will be cross platform so everybody can use it. Currently, if you are not a windows user you cannot update the memory values on the controller unless you go through a web browser. This is a pain and tough to do at times.

Official Release: 1.1.1
New Features:
  • updated xml tags processed, this should fix any parsing errors from the controller

Current Functions:
  • wifi communications only (com still in the works)
  • memory location reading/writing
  • query the status of the controller and display the information.
  • XML parsing is also handled in the Memory tab
  • double click memory information in memory box and fills in location and memory type
  • get controller software version
  • get controller date & time
  • set controller date & time to match system date & time
  • controller IP and port are now saved in the settings
  • main relay status is now added - ability to toggle ports on/off
  • Added new 1.0 memory locations

Here are some future functions:
  • Communications via COM ports

Feedback is always welcomed. If you use a language other than English, I'm curious to know how well the localization works.

Side Note: If somebody has graphic skills and wants to design a better icon for this app, please PM me. You'll get your name listed in the credits. :)

Here's the link to download the file:

http://curtbinder.info/apps/status-1.1.1.jar

If you want an older version (for whatever reason), feel free to browse the files: http://curtbinder.info/apps
The status apps start with "status-".

The application is written in Java for a reason, ie Cross Platform (and also android runs Java ;-)) So you MUST have java installed on your computer, preferably 6 or later (exact version is unknown so please help me test if you can).

Usage:
  • Windows - save file and double click on it to run.
  • Mac - save file and launch it.
  • Linux - save file to computer. right-click on the file and change the permissions to allow Executing. then you can double-click to run. if that fails, open terminal and navigate to folder containing file. execute this command:
    Code: Select all
    java -classpath status-1.1.1.jar info.curtbinder.jStatus.Classes.StatusApp

Enjoy,

curt

No, it currently does not work with the web authentication. I have not added that in yet.

Ahh, nice....did some messing around and was able to read/write several values. Makes it nice since I don't have to upload a new pde every time I want to modify simple values, lcd timeout, feeding mode, lights, etc. and of course no USB hookup required!

OK, lets look at the file properties. Right click on the file and see if you get this:-

status-app.JPG
status-app.JPG (28.48 KiB) Viewed 6910 times


Check at the bottom to see if you have the file Blocked for security protection. If so click to unblock.

That should work. :)
