    plugextradata - errors retreiving 'SOME' data - no issues setting data

    So I store a bunch of PED info.

    Code:
    Dictionary<string, string> peds = new Dictionary<string, string>() {
         ["nodeid"] = "10",
         ["childid"] = "1",
         ["sketch"] = "kitchen monitor",  
         ["libver"] = "2.3",
         ["sketchver"] = "0.6",
         ["heartbeat"] = "94129",
         ["config"] = "Imperial"
    };
    I can read PED data and review in VS2019 and it looks fine. However when I read the ped data with SDK GetNamed() I get jsondeserializationexception thrown from the sdk.

    it fails on the string "2.3.2" but "2.3" works fine....are there restrictions on what can be in a string for a PED? is it documented somewhere.

    The syntax of your dictionary initialiser looks strange, should id simply be just


    Code:
    Dictionary<string, string> peds = new Dictionary<string, string>()
    {
        {"nodeid", "10"},
        {"childid", "1"},
    };
    BTW, .NET has StringDictionary class

      So I simplified the code......

      Code:
      Dictionary<string, string> peds = new Dictionary<string, string>();
      peds.Add("libver", "2.3.2");
      Subsequently I try to get the ped the sdk throws a - Newtonsoft.Json.JsonReaderException


      + $exception {"Input string '2.3.2' is not a valid number. Path '', line 1, position 5."} Newtonsoft.Json.JsonReaderException

      BUT if I change the 2.3.2 to 2.3 everything is fine?????? Funny the string is being treated as a number?

      The PED data returned from HS looks fine, but the sdk GetNamed function throws an error (see pic)

        What's your object class definition you are trying to Deserialise? Obviously it expects a number (float, which 2.3 is) - but "2.3.2" is not a number - it's a string.

          I created a test with least amount of code.

          Code:
          Dictionary<string, string> changes = new Dictionary<string, string>();
          changes.Add("libver", "2.3");
          changes.Add("libver1", "2.3.2");
          
          PlugExtraData ped = dev.PlugExtraData;
          
          foreach (KeyValuePair<string, string> change in changes) {
              ped.AddNamed(change.Key, change.Value);
          }
          
          Hs.UpdatePropertyByRef(refId, EProperty.PlugExtraData, ped);
          
          AbstractHsDevice updatedDev = Hs.GetDeviceByRef(refId);
          PlugExtraData updatedPed = updatedDev.PlugExtraData;
          
          string libver = updatedPed.GetNamed<string>("libver"); //This works returns "2.3" as expected.
          string libver1 = updatedPed.GetNamed<string>("libver1"); // This throws exception previously noted....I'm using strings not numbers....

            Yep, can reproduce the problem. They trim quotes from json string, so JsonConvert becomes confused. WTH???

            BTW, that's the reason I always use SDK code, not prebuilt library - so I can debug this mess.

            So I guess it's https://github.com/HomeSeer/Plugin-SDK/issues

                  seemingly the dictionary initializer was updated in c# 6.....so either variant should work...

                    This works thanks spud - addNamed and getNamed have issues.

                    Code:
                    Dictionary<string, string> changes = new Dictionary<string, string>();
                    
                    changes.Add("libver", "2.3");
                    changes.Add("libver1", "2.3.2");
                    changes.Add("sketch", "Kitchen Monitor");
                    
                    PlugExtraData ped = dev.PlugExtraData;
                    
                    foreach (KeyValuePair<string, string> change in changes) {
                        //ped.AddNamed(change.Key, change.Value);
                        ped[change.Key] = change.Value;
                    }
                    
                    Hs.UpdatePropertyByRef(refId, EProperty.PlugExtraData, ped);
                    
                    AbstractHsDevice updatedDev = Hs.GetDeviceByRef(refId);
                    PlugExtraData updatedPed = updatedDev.PlugExtraData;
                    
                    string libver = updatedPed["libver"];
                    string libver1 = updatedPed["libver1"];
                    string sketch = updatedPed["sketch"];

                      Thanks, good to know. I don't see huge advantage in syntax they describe.
