MMM-Buttons calling MMM-Remote config help



  • Hi, bit new to linux only got a pi 3 months ago and its been a bit of a steep learning curve.

    I’m having a bit of trouble understanding how to configure config.js What I’m trying to do is get MMM-Buttons to send a message to MMM-Remote to hide a module.

    Everything runs ok (remote hides modules when access from my phone), but pressing the button does nothing. I’m guessing I’ve misunderstood how to configure the payload.

    Config for Buttons looks like this:

    {module: 'MMM-Buttons',
        config: {
            buttons: [
                {
                    pin: 32,
                    name: "monitor_control",
                    longPress: {
                        notification: "REMOTE_ACTION",
                        payload: {action: "HIDE", "moduleData":[
        {"hidden":true,"name":"clock","identifier":"module_1_clock","position":"top_left"},],},},
                    shortPress: {
                        notification: "REMOTE_ACTION",
                        payload: {action: "SHOW","moduleData":[
        {"hidden":false,"name":"clock","identifier":"module_1_clock","position":"top_left"},],},}		    
         		}]
    },
    

    config for remote section (same file config.js)

    {
        module: 'MMM-Remote-Control',
    position: "bottom_bar"
        // uncomment the following line to show the URL of the remote control on the mirror
        // , position: 'bottom_left'
        // you can hide this module afterwards from the remote control itself
    },
    

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

  • I was thinking that MMM-Remote-Control was sending the notification, hence the confusion.

    Cleaned the config up to look like this:

    {module: 'MMM-Buttons',
        config: {
            buttons: [
                {
                    pin: 32,
                    name: "monitor_control",
                    longPress: {
                        notification: "REMOTE_ACTION",
                        payload: {"action": "HIDE", "module": "module_1_clock"}
    		},
                    shortPress: {
                        notification: "REMOTE_ACTION",
                        payload: {"action": "SHOW", "module": "module_1_clock"}
    		}		    
         		}
    	]
    }},``
    

    Can I add another payload from the same action i.e. hide clock & calendar?

    Not had any success with that so far, can somebody give me a pointer to the syntax.
