- open xlobby
- use F2 key on your keyboard, a new window called "setup" is opend
- chosse "event manager" tab
- click on "add group", a new folder called "new group" will appear in the list. You can change the name of the folder by dubble clicking it (I have to do this a bit slower then normally), change the name to TV. You will use this folder to group all your commands related to your TV needs
- click on "add event", a "new event" will appear in your TV folder, you can rename this one as well, let's call it "open TV"
- In the right part of the window,underneath the "commands" tab there is a list of possible commands you could use. Opne the "os" subgroup
- choose "execute file", now you can use the browse button to locate the application which you want to execute.

The event has been programmed.

Now you have to make a button which triggers the event.
Add a button on any screen you like. (use pause button on keyboard)
Choose event tab
assign event, using "assign" button
lookup the eventy in the "TV" folder and assign it.

That's all.

Another newbie here. I'm fine creating the event above, but am lost on button creation. I got lost here> Add a button on any screen you like. (use pause button on keyboard) <<< ?
Choose event tab
assign event, using "assign" button
lookup the eventy in the "TV" folder and assign it.

TIA

I am fairly new to Xlobby and love it! I am also trying to launch an external app but am having trouble. I got as far as creating the event and when I test it, it does come up ok. What I want to do with it is to assign it to a button that is already there (not create a new one) but when I go to that button and assign it to the event, it does nothing.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong.....I think I am close on this one......Thanks!!

try creating a dummy button and see if it works with that event first
