IWS execAndGo Plug-in  (IndigoWebServer Plug-In)

Contributed by: Anonymous

Overview

This plug-in will allow you to perform some Indigo action then redirect to a control page: the idea being that you might have a control on a page that you want to click which could then do something and end up on a different (or the same) control page afterward. NOTE: requires 3.0.6 or greater, but will NOT work with 4.x+ (this functionality is built-in).

To that end, there's currently one function in this plugin, execGroup, which takes an Action Group name and a Control Page name. It executes the Action Group and then forwards to the Control Page.

Installation

To install this plugin drag the "variable" folder to the following location:
/Library/Application Support/Perceptive Automation/Indigo 2/IndigoWebServer/plugins/

Usage

To use this plugin from a browser, try the url:

http://yourhost:yourport/execAndGo/execGroup?name=your+group+name&page=your+pa ge+name

You supply the name of the action group to execute and the control page to forward to

To use this plugin from within the control page editor:

  1. In Indigo, open the control page that contains the object you want to click on

  2. select the object

  3. on the "Click Action:" popup at the bottom select "Link to External URL"

  4. in the text box next to the popup, type in the path part of the URL above (you don't need the http://yourhost:yourport/ part). Don't forget to replace spaces in the Action Group or Control Page names with the plus sign (+).

  5. try it!
