Sample: Show Selection

The following code listens for highlighted selection events of a Kaleidescape player. When the selection changes, the Kaleidescape system is queried for details about the selection, such as title and year released, which are then shown on the console.

using System;
using RadiantPi.Kaleidescape;
using Spectre.Console;

// check if there is an environment variable for Kaleidescape player serial number or prompt for it
var deviceId = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("KPLAYER_SERIAL_NUMBER");
if(string.IsNullOrEmpty(deviceId)) {
    deviceId = AnsiConsole.Ask<string>("Enter Kaleidescape Player Serial Number:");

// initialize client
using KaleidescapeClient client = new(new() {
    Host = "",
    Port = 10000,
    DeviceId = deviceId

// hook-up event handlers
client.HighlightedSelectionChanged += async delegate (object? sender, HighlightedSelectionChangedEventArgs args) {
    var details = await client.GetContentDetailsAsync(args.SelectionId);
    Console.WriteLine($"=> {details.Title} ({details.Year}) [{args.SelectionId}]");

// connect to device
await client.ConnectAsync();

// wait for exit
Console.WriteLine("Connected to Kaleidescape. Press ENTER to exit.");
