    Want to cycle through all devices

    Wondering if anyone has a thought on this.

    I have a script working that checks to see if a device is on, and if so will go ahead and turn it off.

    I want to now cycle through all the devices and if the location="lower" then run my section of script. Anyone know how to cycle through all the devices, and if the location="lower" return the ref number?



    basically, i am duplicating a script i used in hs2 where at different times i would run through and turn off all the lights for a specific location in the house.

    The device enumerator has not really changed as far as I can see from HS2. This is what I do in a plugin which should also be possible in a script

    Code:
    Dim dv As Scheduler.Classes.DeviceClass
    Dim en As Object = hs.GetDeviceEnumerator
    
    Do While Not en.finished
    
    dv = en.getnext
                If dv.Interface(hs) = IFACE_NAME Then
                    Log("Found IFACE_NAME, exit", LogLevel.Debug)
                    Exit Do
                Else
                    cDevices = True
                End If
    Loop
    In the loop you could instead test the dv.location field was matched to your variable or not.

      yep, i was using the getdeviceenumerator in hs2, and that still works...was just thinking it would be all different like figuring the capi stuff.

        CAPI is for control so yes it will be different to actually turn the devices off and on but you can still look through the devices the same way as in HS2.

          Misraels... Did you finish the script? I'm trying to do something needs a similar loop - but I cant get it working.

          + mrhappy

          My goal is to extend your script that makes a vDevice a 'Composite Device' for specific device types.

          I'm trying to have it loop through all devices and on-the-fly create an array based on Device Name. Then your script will use that array, instead of the array which is hard coded in the current script.

          I cant seem to get it to create the array without throwing an error on ReDim?

          Code:
          Sub Motion(ByVal Parms as Object)
          	Dim arrMotion() As String
          	
          	'Find ALL Motion Devices
              Dim objEnum As Scheduler.Classes.clsDeviceEnumeration
              Dim objDevice As Scheduler.Classes.DeviceClass
              Dim strDevName As String
              Dim strDevString As String
              Dim strListItem As String
              Dim intDevRef As Integer
              Dim dblDevValue As Double
          	
          	Dim blDimensioned As Boolean    'Is the array dimensioned?
          	Dim newDevice As String         'To temporarily hold new Devices to be added to array
          	Dim lngPosition as Long         'Counting for Array
          
          
              objEnum = hs.GetDeviceEnumerator   ' Get a list of all HS devices
              Do While Not objEnum.Finished  ' Retrieve data for each HS device
          		objDevice = objEnum.GetNext
                  If objDevice Is Nothing Then Continue Do
          			intDevRef = ObjDevice.Ref(hs)
                      dblDevValue = hs.DeviceValueEx(intDevRef)
                      strDevString = hs.DeviceString(intDevRef)
          		If objDevice.Name(hs) = "Motion" Then
          			'hs.writelog("Device Collection", "Adding: " & objDevice.Location(hs) & "," & objDevice.Location2(hs) & "," & objDevice.Name(hs))
          			newDevice = objDevice.Location2(hs) & " " & objDevice.Name(hs)
          			If newDevice <> "" Then
          				If blDimensioned = True Then
          					ReDim Preserve arrMotion(0 To UBound(arrMotion) + 1) As String
                          Else

          			End If
                  arrMotion(UBound(arrMotion)) = newDevice  'Add New Device to the last element in the array.        
          		End If	
          		End If
              Loop
              objDevice = Nothing

            I have a script that you can modify. Mine checks each light if it's on and dimmable it dims them. Keep in mind, this doesn't poll devices, it uses the status contained within homeseer.

            Code:
                Public Sub Main(ByVal Parms As Object)
                    ''This script is intended to be called either manually, or by an event at a specific time
                    ''when called get a list of HS devices; and if it's a dimmable light which is on reduce to the night time dimmed level
            
                    ''in the future I may elect to expand this to act on the specified floor; mainly so I can dim interior lights at one time, and exterior lights at another; for now dim them all together
                    ''In my device setup 'first' floor = inside, 'outside' floor is outside
                    ''dv.location2 = floor
            
                    ''if we are going to specify the floor/location; pass it as a single parm and uncomment the next line
                    ''Dim FloorName As String = CType(Parms, String)
            
                    '' set the dimmed level we wish to use (it's stored in a virtual device)
                    '' if dimmed has been set to 99 it's an override.  exit and no changes should be made to lighting levels

              For now I gave up on creating the Array - I'm just going to loop though using nested IF-Then.

              BUT, I'm getting an error telling me there is an extra "End If"... I count the correct number - its only 4... what am I missing?

              thx for the help!

                The line:

                Code:
                If objDevice Is Nothing Then Continue Do
                does not need an End If, so delete one above the Loop statement.
