    activate device script button from a txt script

    I have made a device with device script buttons.
    When I push the buttons, the script that has to be run is running.
    But if I change the state of the device by an other script (.txt) with

    hs.SetDeviceValueByRef devref, 100, True
    hs.setdevicestring devref, "On", True

    The device goes on, but the script of the device button does not run.
    What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Peter,

    You need to use CAPI commands. Search the board for "capigetsinglecontrol" for some examples.

    Cheers

      For help with constructing CAPI script statements, take a look at tenScriptAid.

          hs.CAPIControlHandler(hs.CAPIGetSingleControl(cv,true ,"On",false,true))
          is working perfect!

            When I want to connect to HS, I get this error:
            Error retrieving Devices from HS3: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

              Could you select the debug box before connecting?

              The HS log will show you where the tenScriptAid log is written.

              Please post log contents here.

                Is there also a command to read if a module is on or off?
                Like replacement for hs.IsOn?

                  Look at the Capi Status value, it should show current status from the CapiControls available for that device:

                  Code:
                  if hs.CAPIGetStatus(924).Status.ToUpper.Contains("ON") then    xxxxxxxxxxx

                    Since you are not controlling a device, you can also get the device's value using hs.devicevalue. However, you'd have to know what the specific values are for on and off as this is not consistent across all types of devices/plugins. Off is typically 0, but On could be 1, 99, 100, 255.

                      Can it be that the device Reference ID of the latest device is too high?
                      Latest device has Reference ID 2451.
                      I have done a lot of testing creating devices and delete them.
                      I now have 687 devices

                        That helps. Did the log not show any devices that it found?

                          No, that is all in the log file.

                            Not likely as my latest reference is quite a bit higher than that and so is my latest device count and it's working fine for me.

                              The error you are getting is before it successfully retrieves even the first HS3 device while enumerating.

                              Please try version 1.14, adds more debug info during Device Retrieval.

                              Please post debug results.

                              Thanks for your patience,
