I modified the source of the msgboxrich command, so i can display the latest image in a directory. As filename you can give: c:\temp\yard*.jpg

I have a modified version of the vmccontroller for win7 binaries, so if you like them, please send me an PM.

See: https://github.com/gjniewenhuijse/MceController

This is the source and dll's from the VmcController, but with some improvements:
-Added functionality to display a notification:
notbox "message" <timeout seconds> "imagepath"
notboxrich "message" <timeout seconds> "button codes" "imagepath"
To hide the image you can use "null" as imagepath
-Fix for button-up/down/right/left/stop (only x64, working on x86 ) etc
-Msgboxrich command can display the latest image file in a directory (example: c:\images\cam*.jpg)

I got this response on the vmccontroller site:

Onhiatus wrote:
Could you cheat by making the image path look unique with some irrelevant data? In html I'd append a time stamp as a parameter that was ignored in the URL (e.g. http://www.xyz.com/asdf?timestamp) - that way the browser would never cache (this was needed for "smart" browsers like mobile Opera that would try to cache on the server side).

I haven't figured out how to test this to see if it works or not yet.

Now i updated the source and added binaries for the button fix problem. Now it works on x86 en x64

I am using VMCController for quiet a while now, and I am very pleased to see that you are developing it further.
I also use the msgboxrich to display images if the front door bell is pressed, and therefore stuggeling with the issue that sometimes cached prictures are shown.
Your Improved msgboxrich command icm with the * wildchard could solve this..
Can you let me know how I can update/install your version of VMCController?
And what does notbox and notboxrich do?
Again many thanks for working on this project... keep up the good work!

Hello,

You can download the files from the binairies dir and replace your files, mostly in program files.

The notbox command shows an notification box in the upper left corner.

Hope it works for you.

Hi Mister gjniewenhuijse,

I had mcontrol version V2.1 build 3391 and update it to the latest version = V2.1 build 4304 I did this because I wanted to sent a email by mcontrol with gmail.
This was working after the update, but the media center controler stoped working after the update!!!

Now I have set the old version back and the media center controler works again

Now i saw that you have a the message box rich working

I have downloaded all the files from the link, but i don't know where to but them can you please help me?

And which version of mcontrol do i need?

Kind regards/ met vriendelijke groet,

Paul uit Nederland

P.S. I have a 32bit system of windows 7
