If done correctly, the screen will look like this: When you launch an application from your defined “no wifi” group, Wi-Fi will be turned off automatically and if you pull down your device’s status bar you will see this notification: …
and when you are doing anything that does not involve an application from the “no wifi” group, Wi-Fi will be turned on again automatically and the notification message will look like this: Some may find the ability to create location-based commands one of the most useful features of E-Robot, giving your device the ability to operate with different settings based on your location.
Furthermore you can set conditions for both events and actions.
Conversely, if we are using Maps® the focus would be there instead, and since Maps® is not in the “no wifi” group, we need to define our Wi-Fi ON command to say that if the “no wifi” group is not currently receiving focus (again, by defining it as a parameter inside the command), turn Wi-Fi ON.if such-and-such app launches, then do this), stopping, receiving focus, or losing focus.Oftentimes the same commands will be useful for more than one application, so it is useful to organize applications into groups and refer to these app groups as a unit when they are to be part of a command definition.Using either method go to the DISPLAY tab and select the desired event, which in this case is Screen turned on (Sent after the screen turns on): The selected event appears on the commands screen: We have defined the event; now we need to define the action to take in case of said event, which is done in virtually identical fashion: click on the sign on the line marked Actions, go to the OTHER tab (again by scrolling or via list selection by clicking any other tab header) and select Display a notification (Post a notification to the status bar).You will see that this action can be parameterized: Parameters allow us to configure the action according to need; in this case, scroll down a bit to content text: and its associated value: field below, and type “Hello” (which is the text we wish to display whenever the screen will be turned on as per our “HELLO” command definition).Looking at the app list now we can see which apps belong to the “no wifi” group because the group name appears in blue below the app name: We have sorted our apps by creating the “no wifi” group; now we need to leave the Applications screen and go back to the Commands screen to create the commands which will turn Wi-Fi ON and OFF.How E-Robot will determine whether Wi-Fi should be ON or OFF will depend on which application is currently receiving focus.For example, let’s assume we want to turn Wi-Fi off when using certain applications, because we don’t want them to use internet, but we do want Wi-Fi to be on when certain other apps that really need it are in use. First we need to create a new application group for the apps we don’t want to use Wi-Fi (so the apps which will not be part of this group will automatically be the ones which do need Wi-Fi): using the top right-hand corner menu, select Applications.E-Robot will take a moment to scan the apps installed on your device, then present these apps in list form.The name of the current screen appears top left, next to the icon: Continuing with the top line there is the “tags” icon, which allows you to organize your commands into GROUPS, and the final icon next to it is a menu which makes it possible to access other features of the application, including E-Robot’s settings.The next row down contains tabs, one per created command, each bearing the command’s given name.
