LED controlling and msn messenger cfa-635

I have 2 questions:

- I want to know if it is possible to control the cfa-635 leds per screen. So if i create a screen I can say of what ID they get there value. I know there are some posts here that describe the same problem but I could not get the answers woring because they were to short and not complete.

- Is there anyone who had created some screen, plugin, script or what else to get MSN messenger or windows live messenger on a screen? I searched everything but I couldn't find anything.

Already thanks for help, and sorry for my bad english but I am Dutch and as you can see my English is not very good:rolleyes:

Your English is fine!

To answer your 2nd question, no. There have been some requests regarding ICQ and other IM's, but nothing has ever been done.

Regarding #1, that is an excellent idea! I do not think it can be done, but perhaps CCadmin can answer better. I do vote for it to be on the Wish List, tho.

Upload your ini files and tell me what you want to see on your LED's would be the simpilist way. I can modify your 635.ini file and upload it back.

That way you can what it looks like and then modify it if you want to change something.

What follows is an abbreviated copy of my ini file. You will want to add to your ini the LED stuff at the end. In this particular file, I am displaying CPU load (2 CPU's). You absolutely have to have a screen loaded that generates the id values, tho. Once you load a screen, you can get these values from the appropriate ini file. In this case, the values would be stored in the perfmon.ini file.

thnx for your help but this is the part of the link I do understand, I can set the value of a LED:). But in the part:

led_select=358738525

ledset00_led01_order=5
ledset00_led01_smooth=7
ledset00_led01_id_value=381711152
ledset00_led01_value_max=100000.000000
ledset00_led01_value_min=0.000000

ledset01_led01_order=4
ledset01_led01_smooth=2
ledset01_led01_id_value=34534855
ledset01_led01_value_max=100.000000
ledset01_led01_value_min=0

I do not understand how to use this and how to get it work.

Ah, I am beginning to understand. The example you have given was just CCadmin thinking aloud. It has never been implemented, hence it will not work.

Unless there is something that I have missed along the way, you can only tie the LED's to a single value (i.e. CPU usage). It cannot be tied to a specific screen and changed as the screen changes.

Do NOT use that example. Use the one I outlined and put it (along with YOUR id #'s) in the 635.ini file.

Questions?
