Sending UDP Commands with Carriage Return


Currently, the send udp command in BrightAuthor doesn't include a carriage return. But, firmware does support it. You can send a udp command with a carriage return using a plugin. 


The following plugin, https://www.brightsignnetwork.com/download/Scripts/UDP-CR-Command.zip, allows you to send a udp command with a carriage return attached. You just have to add the plugin to your brightauthor project, choose send plugin command from advanced commands-send, and then use the following syntax:




THe name of the plugin is "udpcr". You include the name when you add the plugin under file, presentation properties, autorun.

    Hi there,

    This plugin looks like an potential workaround to send UDP message to a different IP / Port than the native BrightAuthor UDP command. 

    What we would be the alteration needed to this plugin to support sending UDP message to a different IP / Port combo ?

    Thanks .

    Olivier, you can change the UDP ports and IP address in BrightAuthor presentation under File > Presentation Properties > Interactive tab. Isn't that enough for you?
