  1. Hi! I am working on my first VD and I want to change the text of a button during runtime. fibaro:call(SelfId, "setProperty", "ui.Button21.Label", "new text") fibaro:call(SelfId, "setProperty", "ui.Button21.value", "new text") None of the calls on top is working, I am a little bit frustrated Change a slider value or a text of a label is working fine Any help is welcome ...
  2. Hello! I would like to know which char/fontset is used for displaying text in a virtual device? Some of the symbols I use are displayed properly some are not, especially in the android application: local grafik = "▄■▀■▄____▄▄▄▄■▀" mobile APP: webapplication: Is it also possible to change the color of the text? The string.format code does not work... fibaro:debug(string.format('<%s style="color:%s;">%s</%s>', "span", color, message, "span")); Thank's for help
  3. Im trying to control my foscam IP camera (PTZ and other) over the http commands. From any regular browser its a pice of cake. I would like to create virtual device where each button will represent specific command for camera control. I succeeded to create a scene with LUA to execute the commands: --[[ %% properties %% globals --]] local httpClient = net.HTTPClient(); httpClient:request('') However when I use the same code in VD with LUA, it doesn't work. I would like to avoid creating 10 scenes and call the scenes from VD, I would like to execute the code directly from VD. Is it possible? Thanx for any advice.
  4. hello all. i have just bought some Sonos speakers and wanted to integrate with home center 2. first part is to control then second part text-to-speech workaround whilst i was going through the forums i found the info i needed scattered around different threads and the original thread was very long, so i have thought i might make it easier by creating a small quick guide: First thing is all credit to the virtual device goes to krikroff for the VD, original thread here - http://forum.fibaro.com/index.php?showtopic=12344 I have created a video demo instead as it was easier to show rather than write. video link is as above. enjoy... download link here: http://www.yorkshireautomation.co.uk/downloads/sonos.zip
  5. When I plugin the plug in the power socket from my denon receiver, internally the unit is initializing different settings, like network, etc... when i plugin the unit, the receiver is set to standby, ok. I want to make a lua code whereby it makes a loop with repeat / until...until i get a code back from the unit if it's in standby mode, or on mode, from there it should continue, see below. but it's skips the repeat/until... When the unit is plugged in, no code is been returned... So i was thinking: instead of this: "if not(trim(result) == "PWON" or "PWSTANDBY") then" use "if (trim(result) == """) then" Are there other ways to detect an empty string ? With other words: When no code is been returned, stay in this loop until PWON or PWSTANDBY is been returned. fibaro:log("Connecting..."); tcpSocket = Net.FTcpSocket("", 23); tcpSocket:setReadTimeout(1000); function trim(s) -- trim leading and trailing whitespaces -- return (s:gsub("^%s*(.-)%s*$", "%1")) end -- Denon is Initializing it's Network -- repeat fibaro:sleep(2000); tcpSocket:write(string.char(0x50, 0x57, 0x3f, 0x0d)); -- requesting for the PWON or PWSTANDBY status ? fibaro:sleep(500); result, err = tcpSocket:read(); tcpSocket:disconnect(); fibaro:debug("Denon Receiver..."..result); if (err == 0) then if not(trim(result) == "PWON" or "PWSTANDBY") then fibaro:sleep(1000) fibaro:debug("...is Initializing"); end end until (trim(result) == "PWON" or "PWSTANDBY") fibaro:debug("Ready to Receive Data: "..result); -- Rest of the code -- Please some help would be appreciated. Thankss a lot
  6. Hi, i'm glad about the new compatibility between HC2 and Remotec ZXT-120 and now i'm trying to test it with Linked Devices, Heating and AC panels. In the Linked Devices - > Air Conditioning configuration I add my Remotec temperature sensor in Main Device option and i'd like to put my Remotec control in "1 Switch" device . It would be helpful to have at least the ability to add a virtual device with 2 buttons on / off that can control my Remotec through the panel but there's no way to add virtual devices. How can i solve it? Regards
  7. I have found in the forum a useful VD tool that scans all my scenes and looks for a specifi pattern (device id etc). When the script finish , it send an email with the search results. Does anyone know if there is any tool that does the same job against virtual devices ?
