    hs.URLAction PUT request not working

    Hi everyone I seem to be having an issue with the put request type.

    HTML Code:
    Sub Main(Parm As Object)
        
        dim result as String
        dim website as String = "https://api.lifx.com/v1/lights/group:XXXXX's Room/state"
        dim request as String = "PUT"
        dim information as String = '{"power" : "on", "brightness" : "1"}'
        dim header as String = "Authorization:Bearer XXXXX(FILLED IN)XXXXX"
        
        result = hs.URLAction(website, request, information, header)
    End Sub
    I get this compliation error

    Compiling script C:\Program Files (x86)\HomeSeer HS3\scripts\Lifx.vb: 'information' is a type and cannot be used as an expression.
    Dec-17 10:13:41 PM Error Compiling script C:\Program Files (x86)\HomeSeer HS3\scripts\Lifx.vb: Expression expected.
    Dec-17 10:13:41 PM Error Compiling script C:\Program Files (x86)\HomeSeer HS3\scripts\Lifx.vb: Namespace or type specified in the Imports 'System.Core' doesn't contain any public member or cannot be found. Make sure the namespace or the type is defined and contains at least one public member. Make sure the imported element name doesn't use any aliases.




    EDIT: I can now confirm with testing from http://requestb.in that HomeSeer does not make any put requests.

    Add this just above "End Sub"
    hs.Writelog("PUT output", result)
    ... so that we can see what's going on.


    And thanks for the tip! I didn't know LIFX finally released their api. I'll take a look at it, and see if I can start on a plugin.

      The problem is this line:

      PHP Code:
      dim information as String '{"power" : "on", "brightness" : "1"}' 
      Change it to:

      PHP Code:
       Dim information As String "{""power"" : ""on"", ""brightness"" : ""1""}"

            Yeah it did with this code

            HTML Code:
            Sub Main(Parm As Object)
                
                Dim result As String
                Dim website As String = "https://api.lifx.com/v1/lights/group:XXXXX's Room/state"
                Dim request As String = "PUT"
                Dim information As String = "{""power"" : ""on"", ""brightness"" : ""1""}"
                Dim header As String = "Authorization: Bearer XXXXXXXX"
                
                result = hs.URLAction(website, request, information, header)
                
                hs.WriteLog("Info", result + "end")
                
                
            End Sub

            Only thing is, is that the PUT still doesnt do anything?

              An update I got a message from support saying this code should work, but im not exactly sure what and where im supposed to edit to make it work?


              Code:
              Dim httpWebRequest = DirectCast(WebRequest.Create("https://apiURL"), HttpWebRequest)
              httpWebRequest.ContentType = "text/json"
              httpWebRequest.Method = "PUT"
              
              Using streamWriter = New StreamWriter(httpWebRequest.GetRequestStream())
              ' Need to put data here to pass to the API.**
              Dim json As String = streamWriter.Write(json).Target.Target
              End Using
              Dim httpResponse = DirectCast(httpWebRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
              Using streamReader = New StreamReader(httpResponse.GetResponseStream())
              Dim responseText = streamReader.ReadToEnd()
              'Now you have your response.
              'or false depending on information in the response
              Return True
              End Using

              If anyone could help me out that would be great!
              Thanks

                  ... we can use "Imports" in scripting now?
                  Or is it just for references already added?

                    Thanks, the only thing is is that I still need to send the authorisation in the header. I ended up making a script in js as I wanted to keep working on it but if possible could you provide the code with authorisation headers too as im sure it would help out those coding in .net

                      You have always been able to add Imports to scripts. They need to be used for certain references added by default and those added via the scriptingreferences entry in settings.ini

                          I'm using the script you offered here, with my own info plugged in, of course, and getting errors:

                          Overload resolution failed because no accessible 'New' can be called without a narrowing conversion: 'Public Sub New(path As String)': Argument matching parameter 'path' narrows from 'Object' to 'String'. 'Public Sub New(stream As System.IO.Stream)': Argument matching parameter 'stream' narrows from 'Object' to 'System.IO.Stream'.


                          Any suggestions to help out a newbie?

                            You need to add the Imports Statements at the top of the script i.e.

                            PHP Code:
                                Imports System.IO
                                Imports System
                            .Net

                               Sub Main

                              PHP Code:
                                  Imports System.IO
                                  Imports System

                              (ByVal Parm As Object)
                                      
                              Dim httpWebRequest DirectCast(WebRequest.Create("https://api.lifx.com/v1/lights/group:XXXXX's Room/state"), HttpWebRequest)

                                      
                              httpWebRequest.ContentType "application/json"
                                      
                              httpWebRequest.Method "PUT"
                                      
                              httpWebRequest.Headers.Add("Authorization""Bearer XXXXX(FILLED IN)XXXXX")

                                      
                              Using streamWriter = New StreamWriter(httpWebRequest.GetRequestStream())

                              End Using

                                      Dim httpResponse 
                              DirectCast(HttpWebRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
                                      
                              Using streamReader = New StreamReader(httpResponse.GetResponseStream())

                              Hi Jon, I'm trying this script as well and get the same errors:

                              Code:

                              I have

                              Code:
                              Imports System.IO
                              Imports System.Net
                              at the top of my script. Any ideas?

                              Thanks
