Making a Crestron Module for HTTP API Control
#1
I'd like to preface this here by saying I'm probably in over my head here and I don't want to waste anyone's time with stupid questions. I have done my best to research this on the forums and on the wiki so be gentle Wink

My first question (of many I'm sure) is regarding the "Action" command. I noticed in the wiki that is says "Be careful of this one since it runs the action on the webserver thread and depending on the action could lock the GUI thread." What actions should I try to stay away from? I noticed while fooling around and sending a few of the action commands that I did seem to lose control of the interface for some time. Is this what they are referring to?

I am currently using the "Action" command only for navigation (up down left right pageup pagedown select). Is there a better way to do this? I also did this with the "SendKey" command pressing a key mapped in Keymap.xml, but this seemed like a roundabout way to do it.

Any and all advice is welcomed!

EDIT: Looks like I found my first one. Action(11) Which is ACTION_SHOW_INFO seems to lock up the interface and the only way to get it back working is to close the info using my computer keyboard. So I guess I fully understand the problem now. I take it when I find these problems my best bet is to work around it with a "SendKey" command?

Also, is this type of thread better suited to the General forum? It seems a little basic compared to what most of you are working on.
