    What kind of error? It still seems like what you get is not what you had in your first example. 

    Can you do this to print the xml data?

    If I copy the code in the previous post and past it into a new post (inside code tags <>), I get a little red dot just before the 'repeat' command. Try to copy the previous post onto a new post and see for yourself. These are "invisible" characters that seems to sneak into the code when copied and pasted in the forum - they don't show but gives compile error - or even worse runtime error. I have tried to clean it in the code below. Try to copy it and see if it works.

  • still the same error. 

    i know what you mean with the litle red dots . (which i always remove and than the code is still the same)

    But it's a compile time error (when you save the VD) or a runtime error when you run the code?

    The 'getSelfId()' seems to be related to your first line? Line numbers for error can be strange...

    it is a runtime error only when i run the code i get that error.

    (when i removed  the function from the xml than the error is gone. the text getSelfId() is not the error because that is working perfectly

    We have a mystery. If I take exactly this code and paste it into a VD button and run it

    I think it started after a recent forum upgrade. If you look at it in HEX they'll probably show up as invalid UTF8

     

    I recently pasted one of my own code snippets from the forum in Zerobrane and got an error ending in:

     

        ... expected near '<\239>'

     

    \239 == 0xFE

     

    Otherwise this is pretty invisible. It's very annoying.

     

    The source of the code on my system is OK, It happens either when you paste code on the forum, or copy code from the forum to your system.

     

    @T.Konopka as a forum admin, would it be possible to check if the forum software could be the cause of those random invalid characters?

    Same as you with this code i have no problems ....  there is something wrong by getting the XML...   and i don't know what it is..

    but i know right now that the error I have got was because it cant find ny xml or some thing like that..

  • @jgab  do i have to specify anything in my get command for getting an XML.

    and when i try to read more data out of the XML (with your last code) "when the XML is in a Variable"  it isn't showing.

     

    lets say i wanted to read out the  TYPE and Preset 

    i would think i have to code it like this but it isn't showing

    Yes, you just need to add the extra formatting directives to the string.format

    locals have scope only within the for loop,  declare them before and it works.

    So, the fibaro:debug in VDs is sensitive both to strings that look like html tags and very long strings (> 1300..).

    If I do like this I can dump the xml string in the VD debug console (have to exchange '<' with '@')

    It can be useful if you want to see what you get

    Good detective work! Change the debug line to this and we can see what we stumble on

    Ok, try this

    Two things changed - allow for both single quote and double quote as string delimiters in properties. Handles extra chars (spaces, crlf) at end of string. Hope there are no red dots...
