How do i find ID of virtual devices

Question

I am trying to incorporate the Netatmo scrips written for HC2.

Please login or register to see this link.

Have have managed to create two virtual devices. These work fine. But i am struggling to create the lua script for calling the virtuall button. When i want to fill in the device id to call i am not sure what the ID is. Under my button it says ID and its named "button11" is this the device id? when i use that it just fucks up the lua code and it seems like it wants only a number but how do i find that number?

Can anybody assist me with this?

Device ID in this case is the device ID of the virtual device, not the button.

Please login or register to see this code.

Easiest way to find the ID is to look in the address bar of your browser when you're editing the virtual device of your choice. The button number is the number in the top left corner when editing the virtual device under "advanced".

    So you mean i should use the label name in my lua script scene?

    in that case it will be like this:

    That gives me the following error: [ERROR] 17:22:48: line LuaScript:

    I am guessing that the script needs to have a device ID there as a number and not text?
