Hi all, hopefully someone can help here. We have a script to control a bunch of stuff on the main show PC and a secondary PC as well. Sadly it seems that we hit some kind of buffer with the commands to the secondary PC. If I hit the button a few times it then goes to "running" and won't continue doing anything. The script is:

Dim client = WebRequest.create("http://10.0.0.4:8088/API/?Function=MultiViewOverlayOn&Input=1&Value=1")
Dim response = client.GetResponse()
response.Close
sleep(100)
Dim client1 = WebRequest.create("http://10.0.0.4:8088/API/?Function=MultiViewOverlayOff&Input=1&Value=2")
Dim response1 = client1.GetResponse()
response.Close
sleep(100)
Dim client2 = WebRequest.create("http://10.0.0.4:8088/API/?Function=MultiViewOverlayOff&Input=1&Value=3")
Dim response2 = client2.GetResponse()
response.Close

I put the "sleeps" in to try and reduce the burden but to no avail.

Ideas on a postcard please!!

As the script stands it just locks it up after a couple of starts

I think pm means, that you are closing 'response' three times, but 'response1' and 'response2' not at all.

For example, this is a good test script for it:
Dim client = WebRequest.create("http://10.0.0.53:8088/API/?Function=OverlayInput1In&Input=1")
Dim response = client.GetResponse()
response.Close
sleep(1000)
Dim client1 = WebRequest.create("http://10.0.0.53:8088/API/?Function=OverlayInput1Off")
Dim response1 = client1.GetResponse()
response.Close
sleep(1000)
Dim client2 = WebRequest.create("http://10.0.0.53:8088/API/?Function=OverlayInput1In&Input=1")
Dim response2 = client2.GetResponse()
response.Close
sleep(1000)
Dim client3 = WebRequest.create("http://10.0.0.53:8088/API/?Function=OverlayInput1Off")
Dim response3 = client3.GetResponse()
response.Close

If you run this a couple of times, it breaks. You can then wait a few minutes and it starts working again. Very odd!

I see. I'll give that a go.

Assume you are trying it with a webrequest because you are controlling another computer as else you just could use the APi.Functions?

Webrequests do take some time to finish (if at all) , have you tried one at a time ( step by step debugging) and trying not to start the script again before being shure it has executed completly ?

Always a good idea to build in error traps within a script !

Yes, controlling another PC. It seems that it's a rate of request thing that does it. If I just do one command it works. If I then bash the one command script a bunch of times, it breaks. If I have 3 or more web requests it breaks. It still responds if you run the same web request from a browser though which seems odd!
