    Right, I remember that now, however it just should not be this way. Having to enter changes each time you update Homeseer is just not on.

      Startup delayer was a simple/quick workaround so guess I'll stick with it until HS reach 2017 in their helpdesk backlog and fix the issue.

        Jon00,

        I may have discovered a bug. If I use the "Select Timer" dropdown to show events with a specific Timer, an event where the Timer is part of a condition (Timer's value is more than X) is not displayed. It appears to be because the word Timer doesn't actually appear in the condition.

        If I search for the name of the timer in the search box, all events are displayed, however.

        Just checking.

          I've confirmed this is still true in the most current version 1.0.10.

            Sorry, missed your post. Not sure there is much I can do apart from putting a note in the docs to use search.

            Can you post an example condition as I don't have one on my system.

              Here's the output of using the search dialog for a timer name. The first event in this list of 3 isn't found using the Timers dropdown.

                There is nothing in the condition that would indicate this is a timer. It's really a bug in the condition as it should say "If Timer AppWatchdog-SamTab2's value....."

                The issue is that if I only search on the timer name, it could false hit if the timer name is common with anything else within an event structure.

                  Agreed, just one of HS3's many inconsistencies. Just wanted to point it out. As you noted, a note in the documentation may be the only option.

                    Jon00, I found another (I believe) bug. If I enter a string in the search box with a colon in it, like the format used for hstouch screen:element, the web page downloads a file instead of displaying results. Is there any way to escape this?

                      Unfortunately it is a bug with HS's web server with aspx web pages using querystring. I did report it but nothing was done.

                      The same things happens if you use /test.aspx?:

                        Hi Jon,

                        I have an HS3 event that runs event viewer and device viewer scripts every night so I can include that info in my nightly backups.

                        I am getting the following errors.

                        Is there anything I can do to help track them down?

                        Aug-16 1:45:54 AM Jon00_DevView Error in Main Block 37b: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at scriptcode158.VBWrapper.Main(Object MyData)

                        Also a feature request on Event Viewer: is there any way you could include a link to the events so it is easier to get to the right event from your search results?


                        Thanks!

                          For event viewer, I've sent you a PM with a new version to try. If it errors it will now give the event name in the log.

                          For device viewer, I'm not sure what I can do (apart from suppress the error - which I don't want to do). This indicates a corrupt device in your setup.

                          Regarding your feature request, unfortunately no. There is no method to link directly to an event in HS3. This is because the event page is built on the fly depending on your selection.

                            V1.0.11 has been released for HS3.

                            Changes since 1.0.10:

                            Corrected bug in ‘Do Not Log – Ascending’ filter.
                            Added method to find corrupt events which cannot be processed by the viewer.

                              There is a bug somewhere. Maybe not yours though. I have been struggling with trying to get HS3 devices to show up in the Alexa skill and have issued a ticket for help. This all started when I was trying to add a device and went through the "Remove All" routine and then the "Discovery" routine. HST is looking at it but they haven't solved it yet. It seems that Amazon has been making changes to the HomeSeer Automation Skill which I am trying to get working so I can use your Alexa helper app. Anyway, I had about 20 events set up with voice command and now the procedure is to remove all of the voice command options from all devices and events in order to get linked properly to the Alexa skill. Disabling the voice command option from devices is easy enough, but to disable it from events is not so easy. I used your Event Viewer to find them with the
                              'voice command" search option. I disabled all voice command options from all events and the voice command text. However, when I re-run the Event Viewer I see a red square on the voice command line. (see attachments) Also, the voice command text entry is not really removed from the HS3 data base. It comes back when the event screen is reloaded. The "include as voice command" option does not show up again, only the text.

                              I just noticed that the HS Log is showing the error below when I run your Event Viewer: (there are 40 lines of this error in the log)

                              Interesting. The errors are only thrown when the Global Cache Pro plug-in is enabled. Maybe it has something to do with the alexa problem too??

                                I can't really assist; however the red square would suggest corruption in the HS database.
