I understand that yes I am opening a new socket right now. Just starting with a very basic sample before I move on. I removed the socket.onData function buut still not seeing data in the panel on the page.
construct your socket with
Don't worry about assigning onData, onConnect, onIOError functions as they are not used if you supply 'true' in the constructor.
Next, issue your call to connect()
followed by call to write()
followed by read()
Note that you may have to loop until you get 0 bytes returned.
followed by call to close()
Not sure this will work as you don't know how many bytes are actually there.
Also, note that as this is HTTP protocol, the data you are expecting to put in the label will not be pretty, meaning that you will have to parse out text you might want.
I've never used KODI so I won't be of much help with deciphering the responses.
