I have finally made the full switch to SAM Cast, and am looking for a VBScript of JScript that will pull the data from my XML File that Player101 exports, I'll attach a demo of it below here.
That's what you think you are looking for. But you misunderstand the Event
-based mechanism of the Event Adapters.
Instead it wants your automation system to do one of the following things:
- Send an HTTP GET Request to the integrated webserver with all the fields as URL parameters
- Send TCP Request to the internal webserver of SAM Cast, sending the data in any plain text format
- Provide a TCP server socket where it will provide the relevant data in any plain text format
- Send the data over a serial connection (RS232/COM) in any plain text format
The VBScript/JScript part of SAM Cast just processes the plain text it receives via TCP or Serial connection into seperate fields.
You could of course write a Filesystem monitor that checks a file for changes in VBScript or JScript if that is your preferred programming language.
I'm not sure if the Windows Scripting Host allows for long-running/infinitely-running scripts, though.
Trying to find out about the technical details of Player101 is kinda hard. The only information I could find was that the software was renamed to Player101 in 2007 when RCS bought the original developers of that software. However the press release from 2007 is the latest information I could find.
Maybe you can find out more in the documentation you might have, especially if it's possible to send the metadata out of that software in any other way then writing it to a file.
