Possible for LUA to change virtual device IP address?



Are the IP Address and TCP Port properties for a virtual device read only in LUA and only able to be changed using the web interface?


Tried the following from a scene with no success.

fibaro:call(id.vd, "setProperty", "ip", newIP)
fibaro:call(id.vd, "setProperty", "port", newPort)
fibaro:call(id.vd, "setProperty", "IPAddress", newIP)
fibaro:call(id.vd, "setProperty", "TCPPort", newPort)

  • Well.... I came across this not by trying to change the IP address of a virtual device for 3rd party comms but was using the IP and TCP port fields to store a couple of variables that could easily be accessed and changed within the virtual device buttons by using fibaro:getSelfId(). Think global variables constrained to the virtual device. Was trying to avoid creating a system wide global or hard coding the variables into each button.


    An idea that came to mind a while back (that I've been meaning to post as a feature request) to get around this was for buttons, labels, etc to have a hidden checkbox added that means they are still functional but hidden from any GUI's - only visible in the advanced tab when configuring the virtual device. If this was possible, labels could be used to store variables and hidden buttons for automated tasks that aren't designed for user interaction. Make sense?


    The current 'empty' checkbox is next to useless (apart from providing line spacing) as any programming is removed when checked.
