Question

Hello everyone!

 

I'm working on solution that should bring easier sharing and installation of scenes and virtual devices for users. What I'm missing is a way how to change button and label 'Name' or 'caption' using LUA code and/or REST API. See picture bellow:

 

 

 

@T.Konopka,

 

Please if you know answer to this question can you share it, or of it is not possible with latest version 4.120 can this be added to the todo list for some future release?

Really appreciate your help!

 

Sincerely Sankotronic

 

EDIT

 

This is solution to the question provided by @A.Socha:

After changing label, slider or button caption please refresh HC web GUI interface page and do Refresh Network data on mobile devices to make change visible!

    Hi @A.Socha,

     

    Thank you for the answer but I still don't get it. Is jsonView a computer program? I just have problem with getting syntax for rows and elements. An example would be highly appreciated.

    Thank you @A.Socha for quick answer, but I know how to change value of the label. What I need is to change caption (label) of the label and button that is entered here:

     

     

     

    but I need to do that runtime from LUA! Is that even possible to do? I'm trying all day today but no success.

  • This is json of simple virtual device:

    Please login or register to see this code.

    So, what I need is to change "caption" of label and button. I try to do that with this code:

    Please login or register to see this code.

    but that doesn't work. I need to change buttons and labels caption depending on language selection on HC.

  • Thank you @A.Socha very much!

     

    This code works nice! Since I will use it only to setup proper language and that will be done only at first run needing to refresh page or network data in app is not a big deal. But if it could be displayed immediately after changing caption without needing to refresh page or data would be great because that would open some more interesting possibilities.
