    Hello guys,

    I have problems to understand the mapping between MP and the MessagePlugin.

    I want to change the mapping for the key "My Pictures" to the red button on my Logitech Harmony 525 remote.
    At the moment I can sent this command from the extended set of the Harmony buttons, but I want this command on a easier place to reach.

    When I press the button "My Pictures" MP switches directly to the screen with my pictures.

    But where is this mapping defined?

    There is no mapping inside the keyboard.xml file.

    In the MessagePlugin.XML is a definition for this key, but I do not understand the meaning of this command:

    Code (Text):
    2. <button name="My Pictures" code="73">
    3.    <action layer="0" condition="*" conproperty="-1" command="WINDOW" cmdproperty="2" sound="click.wav" />
    4. </button>
    Can anybody explain the relation between the different parts of the MP command system

    thx, Stefan
