Blackmagic Design makes some cool production switchers that are reasonably priced and work great. They even distribute an SDK to control them from Windows or Mac programs. Controlling from Crestron is tougher, but not impossible. Some third-party products have sprung up to make it easier,… Read More
In the final part of this series, we’ll finish by adding some basic functionality to the module we created in Part 3. Then we’ll look at how to drop this module into a real program and debug it when things go wrong. Lastly, we’ll consider… Read More
In this part, we’ll extend our Device class and create a subclass specialized for talking to Cisco devices. Then we’ll work on properly wrapping our SIMPL+ module into a SIMPL User Macro.
In the last part, we got a basic SSH connection working to our Cisco codec. Now we’re going to try sending and receiving some commands!
In this series of posts, we’ll develop a basic module for controlling Cisco Room Kit devices. It can be used in SIMPL Windows or SIMPL# Pro programs. It won’t be as exhaustive as the official module available from the Application Market, but it will be… Read More
Here is the final part to this module: wrapping it up and making it easy to use. SIMPL Windows is a powerful tool because it easily abstracts away a lot of details about how things happen. The way our phonebook works under the hood will… Read More
In this part, we’ll add support for pages to our phonebook. That may not sound like much, but it will set us up for the 4th (and final) part where we wrap everything into a SIMPL User Macro that we can easily drop into our… Read More
In this part, we’ll continue to develop our Phonebook class to provide more functionality to our SIMPL Windows programs. We won’t quite finish in this part, but we’ll be very close. Make sure you download the current source code from GitHub, too.
I thought it would be a good idea to document from start to finish (soup to nuts) the process of building modules in SIMPL#. I hope to do a few of these as I build out some helpful modules. Code is available at https://github.com/kielthecoder/SoupToNutsModules.
