dxlabs set global profile when clicking a spot

Is there a way to automatically select a global profile from DXLABs when clicking on a spot?  When I change bands, I need to select a different global profile due to how my Flex is setup with the AMP.   I think there is a way to issue a Flex API call somehow from commander, but a bit lost on where this would go.

In Commander, you can define up to 32 user-defined command sequences, each of which can issue one or more commands to the current primary transceiver. For a Flex Signature transceiver, those commands are Ethernet API directives, some of which are documented here.

In SpotCollector, you can specify a user-defined command sequence to be executed anytime SpotCollector directs Commander to QSY your transceiver, as described here

So if Flex provides and documents an ethernet API directive to select a global profile, you can configure DXLab to issue that directive each time you QSY by double-clicking the Spot Database Entry for an active DX station.

While I monitor this forum, requests for assistance with DXLab applications will likely yield a more rapid response when posted to the DXLab Discussion Group.
