Updated IHC Alternative Service View
The IHC Alternative Service View application has been updated. If you have already installed it, you should get the update automatically when you start the application. If you do not already have it:
If you don’t like the click once installer or can’t get it working, you can download the files without installation – see mono section below. It can also run on Windows, Just unzip and run IhcAlternative.exe
If you are doing any interfacing with IHC you know it is annoying to have to look though the IHC project file to find resourced ids. This application makes it easier because you just select the resource in the project tree and you can see the id in the section the to lower right.
The installation and application are only signed by a self signed certificate so you will have to accept the warnings you get in windows. (If anyone know of a cheap/free code sign certificate or want to give me one, let me know)
The application now use another version of my IHC sdk using web references (the previous version uses Service references) to do the soap stuff. (Soap if the protocol used to talk to the IHC controller). I am going to release the IHC sdk soon, so you do not have to ask, you will get more details/explanation when that happens.
Misc crash bugs have been fixed.
Boolean, Integer and floating point resources are now all supported and can be monitored and changed.
Mono on Linux
It is now possible to run IHC Alternative service on Linux using mono. You can download the files here:
Unzip the files and run: mono IhcAlternative.exe
I have verified this on a Ubuntu running mono 4.2.1 (This an old version of mono but the version you get without having to compile it your self)
It may also work on a mac with mono, but I do not have the setup to verify that, so if anyone tries it please write the result in the comments below.
