    So the following code is going to work as it is here when placed in the Global Exectbl.ini:

    Code:
    "ONSOURCECHANGE","IFVAR;ACTIVESOURCEID<>1;LOWERANT<<RAISEANT"
    "LOWERANT","RUN;C:\Documents and Settings\<my username>\My Documents\RideRunner\Skins\DFX5\Scripts\Antenna\Lower.exe"
    "RAISEANT","RUN;C:\Documents and Settings\<my username>\My Documents\RideRunner\Skins\DFX5\Scripts\Antenna\Raise.exe"
    I assume the ACTIVESOURCEID of "1" is the Radio ID?

    Sure wish there was a help file with all of these commands listed!

    Thanks Blue for the info.
    Thanks Mitch.

    I appreciate the help cuz I need it! Having fun tho when things work finally.

    BTW Mitch I couldnt find anywhere to buy the radio to serial cable for the HD Zoom radio I bought. All links show its now unavailable. I had to make my own! But it works so all is good.

    Yes, maybe electric antennas arent so common but still even if 20 people have to search and rip their hair out like I have done - thats painful! A how sticky for each component for a computer system would be so helpful. For instance my project could be included as one option to get your antenna to work which could include scripts/apps, schematics, and rr/skin needs to get it to work.

    Just a thought.

    Thanks!

    there is files with the commands.. while its not that organized, try looking in the documentation folder
    and always review history.txt for the latest

    you do relize, LOWEANT and RAISEANT are dynamic commands, i invented them just for this

    yes ActivesourceID = 1 is hd radio, and yes it documented...

    i dont make a "serial" cable, only USB, "serial" long gone....
    -Thanks

    maybe dynamic isnt the best word

    they are just some letters in a row that mean something

    in this case the command parser, finds "LOWERANT" command in the exectbl and does the translation...

    you know instead of asking me if it will work... try it!

    and use SKINTOOL to test the commands
    -Thanks

    Ok thanks

    If anyone comes across this thread and would like my electronic designs and Autoit apps for using the parallel port to monitor external inputs from your car to fire commands in RR and the reverse - RR to control external hardware via the parallel port PM me!

    I enjoy helping people so just let me know.
