In addition to previously available test command capabilities, the Remotes feature of Immediate Insight now supports user defined command parameters that will be prompted for in the GUI when the test command is executed.

The following options are supported:

p – prompt to display (required)
h – hint to show in the field (optional)
d – default value (optional)

The full variable syntax always begins with two @ and ends with three @. Colons separate options.

@@args:p=arguments for ls:h=arguments:d=-l@@@
