Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as communicating with the Magic Lantern sandbox?

I'm writing a Windows application that reports the current magic lantern settings and allows the user to change them via a GUI.

Thanks much.

You might need the EOS SDK.
Otherwise on linux people use gphoto2 and libgphoto.

I'm currently using the EOS sdk to communicate with the canon factory properties. But what about the non-Canon supported, Magic Lantern properties?

Thanks

Ah, I understand what you're saying.
I experienced that also.
I'm not sure if they are controllable...

Stzupy some times ago made a program for control magic lantern from Android devices, but now unfortunately after many changes to menu system is not working anymore :(
I miss it a lot.
If you can make a program for it I'm with you :)
