Macros are used to send multiple commands from a single button. In iRule, you can combine commands from the same Device, different Devices, different Command types (IR, serial & IP) and different Gateways offering you maximum flexibility. This tutorial covers how to create and configure a macro. Delays are now automatically added to a macro between the commands, but can still be modified to customize timing.
Expand the Device and Codes to show the available Codes that can be assigned to a button.
Drag and drop the Device code to the button in the main interface window. The button where the command will be assigned is highlighted in blue.
The button now has a single Device code assigned to it. The button is no longer grayed out.
Drag and drop additional commands to the button.
You can adjust the timing of the delays as needed. By default, the delays will be set to 0.2 seconds .
