#10521 closed Bug Report - General (Won't Fix)

Frontend services api not responding as expected

Reported by: simon@… Owned by: Bill Meek
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.28
Component: MythTV - Services API - Frontend Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I'm using the new Services API to write a remote control application and there is an issue with the SendAction? API when trying to enter a Parental PIN in MythVideo?, ie


will bring up the window to enter the parental PIN, but, after entering the PIN and entering Action=DOWN it appears to enter the text DOWN in the PIN field, rather than moving the focus down to the OK button. (I can't be sure of what is being entered in the field as it is masked, but Action=DOWN enters 4 characters and Action=UP enters 2 characters)

I've tried this with the Mythbuntu and Terra themes and both have the issue.

Also, when in the setup screens the Frontend API doesn't seem to respond at all to the SendAction? API, you have to use a physical keyboard to navigate around.

LEt me know if there are any logs for the Frontend API that I can send to help with this.

In 87e72e97a8238aafa375acb0a53ebc6b50193894/mythtv:

Services API: new endpoint; Frontend/SendKey?

See ticket 11916 for a detailed explaination about when this endpoint
would be used in place of Frontend/SendAction? (thanks Mike.)

N.B. If SendKey? is used to enter (for example) a user's Parental ID,
the *'s that hide their ID won't display.

Closes #11916
Refs #10521

This endpoint won't be changed. Rather, the new SendKey? should be used for this type of input. See the #11916.
