  • How do you set the value on a Sliderbar?

    I added a jsSlider object to one of my config screens. When it gets created you can set min/max value, current value, orientation etc but once created, I can't find the property to set the slider position to another value.
    Wade any idea?

    For jqSlider, when the slider is moved, it will postback to your postbackproc *unless* you have it as part of a form. By having the autopostback, it will remember the slider's position.

    I've used it both ways. If you do use a form, you'll need to get a little fancy and store the value in a hidden element and reposition the slider when the page refreshes.

    Let me know which method you are using...

      Hi Rob, thanks for your response!

      In absence of a property to set, I began doing to the same, recreate the object each time you create the page and store values in other more persisted variables.

      However, what I really wanted to do, is have an autopostback (Ajax) every second or so, so I can dynamically update what's happening on the page.

      The slider for example, is actually showing the track position progress so it needs to move each second and of course can be used to reposition the part you want to play.

      Anybody having any luck dropping an Ajaxhandler and figuring out how it works and how you can refresh only parts of your webpage?

        Hmmmm.... That would be very useful for many things.
        I might have to play around with that - dynamically checking for changes.
        I'll try to post back if I come up with anything...

          I am not sure I added it to the docs, but you can call any javascript function from a postback like, to call the click function on an elelment for example:

          Me.pageCommands.Add("executefunction", "$('#" & "EventGroupNameText_" & e.EvRef.ToString & clsJQuery.ID_IDENT & "').click();")

          So for the slider, just find the jquery call to set the values and you can set them with this function.

          There are property set and reset functions too like:

          To disable an element:

          Me.propertySet.Add("SETRESET_gSMTPServer" & clsJQuery.ID_IDENT, "addattr=disabled=disabled")

          To enable an element:

          Me.propertySet.Add("SETRESET_gGmailUser" & clsJQuery.ID_IDENT, "removeattr=disabled")

            what about the status value on the status page? How can i change Dim 0% to Off and Dim 100% to On?

            using the following definition

            Pair.PairType = VSVGPairType.Range
            Pair.RangeStart = 0
            Pair.RangeEnd = 100
            Pair.RangeStatusPrefix = "Dim "
            Pair.RangeStatusSuffix = "%"
            Pair.Render = Enums.CAPIControlType.ValuesRangeSlider
            Mark

              You could change the range, use 1 to 99, then have 2 other pairs for 0 and 100 which would be Off and On.

                what's the order to add the on & off pairs, the following doesn't work

                Pair = New VSPair(ePairStatusControl.Both)
                Pair.PairType = VSVGPairType.SingleValue
                Pair.Value = 0
                Pair.Status = "Off"
                hs.DeviceVSP_AddPair(Ref, Pair)

                Pair = New VSPair(ePairStatusControl.Both)
                Pair.PairType = VSVGPairType.Range
                Pair.RangeStart = 1
                Pair.RangeEnd = 99

                  What doesn't work? Are you trying to make a slider control appear? Or are the name/value pairs not getting applied?

                    i would like a slider where the right end equates to On (100) and the left end equates to Off (0).

                    i thought i had the On working but i can't replicate it.

                    Yes, the name/value pairs are not getting appplied or added to the slider.

                    i guess the question is, can i add custom value/status pairs to an existing slider control? doesn't seem to work

                      Ok, I see, I will check, I don't think you can do that.

                        Rich,

                        this sequence seems to do what i was asking for which is only display a slider but instead of Dim 0% you get Off status, and instead of Dim 100% you get On status. otherwise you get Dim x%.

                        Can you please confirm this and let me know if this is a supported use of the slider?


                        Pair = New VSPair(ePairStatusControl.Status)
                        Pair.PairType = VSVGPairType.SingleValue
                        Pair.Value = 0
                        Pair.Status = "Off"
                        hs.DeviceVSP_AddPair(Ref, Pair)

                        Pair = New VSPair(ePairStatusControl.Both)
                        Pair.PairType = VSVGPairType.Range
                        Pair.RangeStart = 0
                        Pair.RangeEnd = 100
                        Pair.RangeStatusPrefix = "Dim "
                        Pair.RangeStatusSuffix = "%"

                          There is no slider control per say - the slider control that you see is generated by the information you put in the value/status pairs.

                          To do what you want, there are two ways:
                          1. Create a range (0 to 1) and in your SetIOMulti, when HomeSeer calls it on a change of the slider, convert the 1 to 100 and send that to the device. When the device changes and is "On", you set the device value to 1 instead of 100.
                          2. Create three value/status pair entries - the first one is a CONTROL ONLY range that has the value from 0 to 100. That will generate a slider with a big long range of 0 to 100. When you get the SetIOMulti call from HomeSeer on a change, convert 1 through 49 to 0 and convert 50-99 to 100. Next, add two STATUS ONLY values, one being 0 (label "Off") and one being 100 (label "On") - now the user can move the slider, but with you converting the value to 0 or 100, the displayed status will still show as On or Off. If you use this method, remember that the user is going to slide the slider to let's say 75, so SetIOMulti is going to be called. You will know that 75 is really 100, but you only have status pairs for 0 and 100, so you need to remember to call SetDeviceValueEx setting the value to 100 (or 0) and tell it NOT to trigger events. If you call SetDeviceValue instead, you will get a looping effect because SetIOMulti will get called by HomeSeer again.
                          So to summarize:
                          • User moves the slider to a value in the range of 0 to 100.
                          • HomeSeer calls SetIOMulti and passes your plug-in the value that the user left the slider at.
                          • If the value is not 0 or 100, then you change it to 0 or 100 and then call SetDeviceValueEx to set the device to the proper value without triggering events (thus making the display show On or Off).
