[Feature Request] for passing along variable to scenes


Recommended Posts

Have not seen it before, but would it not be nice to be able to use values as options in startScene?


Now you have: "fibaro:startScene(sceneID)"

Proposel would be "fibaro:startScene(sceneID,value1, value2, value3)" or whatever you would use to pass it along. (and while they are at it, allow passing a variable for the sceneID to work for example with those jT.Hometable solutions)

Then in that scene you start value1, value2, value3 would be available in the scene itself.

Makes re-using a scene more of an option.


And yes, you can use globals to pass along information. But this would be a nicer solution / more user friendly.

A single extra parameter might be cleaner (and easier to implement). Just pass a table if you need more variables.

  • That is indeed cleaner, i would be happy with whatever they can come up with (can't see much going wrong in something so simple)

    I totaly agree! This would be so nice to have, and could greatly lower need for global variables!
