    Plug-in Worklog: PSUmonitoRR

    Carnetix p2140's come with an application to monitor the PSU and other valuable system info.

    PSUmoni has an SDK Available and someone was trying to hack together a .dll for frontend integration, but I can't find anything about it.

    I can embed it, but it's not "resizeable" so it doesn't work well, and it doesn't match the skin (fonts, colors, etc.)

    I'm not that great at coding, and I could learn, and it would take me a few months to hack together something, but I know there are some great coders here that could do it blindfolded.

    Basically, with the PSUmoni app, we can find out a lot of different things about how the system is running, and how the PSU is running:



    It would be nice to have indicators for all the LEDs, sliders for all the voltage and current levels, and one for the PSU temp, and of course labels with the pertinent info.

    I'm willing to help with what I can, and if no one is willing to do it, I am willing to be pointed in the right direction to get started.


    EDIT - I am just going to now use this thread as my worklog for my progress. Check back to this thread for updates and a release soon. The plugin will be named PSUmonitoRR (pronounced soo-Mahn-it-er or pee-ess-yoo-mahn-it-er)

    If i had one i'd gladly make a plugin for it. Since its nothing but labels, sliders, and indicators it seems likea perfect candidate for an RR Plugin.

    I think the way the software is designed, you don't really need to have a unit to develop for it. Like I was saying, I am willing to learn, but not sure where to start.

    I'm pretty sure it would be fairly easy, open up the SDK, find the info that's being output, create RR variables, done. It's a matter of doing all this that I have yet to learn.

    well inside the source code package is an example extension plugin that does a very good job of explaining whats needed to create each RR element. Its VERY noob friendly.. i knew nothing about VB prior to looking at it

    Also have a look at Robbys TPMS and PDC plugin sources, they are what helped me understand the extension plugin interface.

    It doesn't look like I'll get a good few hours to look through this until middle of next week.
