Remote Control Commands

General Notes

If cannot be found in the respective dropdown menues, all remote commands can be typed in manually. For scripting purposes any arbitrary command can also be typed in. In scripts, use ExecuteCommand('<command>'); to employ command.

Two or more commands can be joined using a semicolon in between and thus are executed sequentially: COMMAND1; COMMAND2; COMMAND3 and so forth.
