    Default [closed] Controlling Dust Cover

    [moderator note: This long running thread has been closed - in the end the Alluna software was corrected]

    Am in the process of automating my observatory. Am stuck on how to operate the dust cover. I have contacted the telescope manufacturer who also make their own control system. They have sent me this in reply to my query about how that might be done:

    You can also control DustCover via the Application Programming Interface (API) interface.

    command:
    SetDustCoverOpens/Closes the DC-Flaps.
    GetDustCover
    Returns the current DustCover status, 1 = Open or 0 = Closed.


    I haven't written in javascript since the late 90's. I have read the threads on the flip-flap in this forum area but I am still not closer to writing the code I need. Probably most simply would be to have code that I can insert into my StartUp and Shutdown scripts. Also having direct control through a tiddler would be helpful for manual control.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciate.

    Thanks

    Peter
