Is it possible to create a child QA on an existing Fibaro device?

Question

Is it possible to create a child QuickApp of which the parent is an existing Fibaro device?

 

What I want to do is, to create a child on a Fibaro Binary Switch 2.

The child is of the Multilevel switch type.

You have those light bulbs that dim according to the number of switch clicks (1click = 100%, 2clicks = 50% and 3clicks =15%).

Now I have this in a separate QA, but I want this as an extension to the Binary switch on which the light bulb is mounted.

 

Is this possible?

thanks.

  • In this post jgap explained that a QA cannot be a child of a fibaro device.
    Unfortunately.

    Therefore I add the separate QA for such lamps.

  • You have those light bulbs that dim according to the number of switch clicks (1click = 100%, 2clicks = 50% and 3clicks =15%).

    By downloading the file and installing it, you can control such light bulb. with the QA.

     

    Download the file,

    Go to settings and divices,

    klick the Plus sign, to add a device,

    Select other device,

    Select upload file, and select the downloaded file.

     

    Go to the newly imported device (the QA or QD)

    go to variables, and change its value to the device to control..

     

    Go to the device where you entered the value from.

    and hide thad device.

  • By fine-tuning the code, I changed the following code to an anonymous function (Lambda expression), 

    and the QA listens to his parent. As far as the setting of the switch value is concerned.

    looks much cleaner now..

     

    and for the sake of completeness, the checkState code

    I also included the full QA.

    @NLWaard

     

    Thank you very much for creating something very useful as this. 

     

    I recently bought a HC3, and I am figuring out how I can use the quick app to my situation. I have created following quickapp view.

    I wanted to add my device to the code and made sure the buttons work. But i am afraid i am missing something. I created the button with certain ID, a label 15 % and than i have to add a value at onReleased. 

    Can you explain to me which values i have to add under the Controle part of the button? Or maybe i have to add something in the coding?

    Hi, no, the buildup seems good.

    You have a unique Id for the button and you refer to the function turnOn15.

    Can you indicate what does not work?

     

    B.T.W. Two buttons are sufficient.

    Because turnOff and turnOn are controlled with the main button of the QA itself.

    This leaves the two buttons for 15% (turnOn15) and 50% (turnOn50).

     

    I've included my latest version. Can you check it out?

    (I've made several quickApps that reinforce each other.

    I've put some code back for this stand-alone version).

     

    I also added two push buttons that switch the 20% and 50% illumination.

    (20% because Fibaro has an icon for this, now you'll see a difference to the 50% icon).
