Automation / Scripting
Please click here
for the latest scripts submitted by the myControl community.
Scripts can be loaded in the myControlServer
application (and subsequently added to the myControl
app) to automate
any task - using the scripting engines available on the host.
file and an icon.png
should be added to the myControlServer application directory in the Scripts folder (a sub directory
structure is used to control the name of the script). A few default scripts are included with the myControlServer installation as
an example of how the script structure is implemented.
When the myControl app submits a script execution command, the myControlServer interrogates the relevant cmd.txt file to determine
the command line to execute in the host environment. This can be any command that the operating system on the host can parse. We
recommend installing the latest version of AutoHotKey
for a Windows installation.
(for devices that support voice recognition
The myControl interface allows the execution of scripts via voice recognition. When the voice control button (for scripts) is
selected in myControl (and a speech fragment is submitted), the application will attempt to identify and execute the named script.
The real benefit of script execution via voice command is the ability to submit additional phrases in the command.
For example, to execute a Google search for "robot" on the host (using the default Google script) you can select the voice control
button and say: "Google robot". This script can also recognise an image search in the form: "Google images robot".
When the "Single Script Voice Activation"
preference is set, the script name is not required (as it will automatically be loaded). For example the Google search script
could be selected for single script voice activation and then the user would only have to utter the word "robot" to execute the search.
