  • How to wait?

    How can I insert a small pause between these commands? I'm thinking they're running too fast for the devices to update properly, essentially running on top of each other as far as the devices are concerned. The result is that many devices will have the same data.


    Code:
    Sub Main(Parm As Object)
        
        hs.SetDeviceString(899, hs.DeviceString(898), True)
        hs.SetDeviceString(898, hs.DeviceString(897), True)
        hs.SetDeviceString(897, hs.DeviceString(896), True)
        hs.SetDeviceString(896, hs.DeviceString(895), True)
        hs.SetDeviceString(895, hs.DeviceString(843), True)
        hs.SetDeviceString(843, hs.DeviceString(842), True)
        hs.SetDeviceString(842, hs.DeviceString(840), True)
        hs.SetDeviceString(840, hs.DeviceString(833), True)
        hs.SetDeviceString(833, hs.DeviceString(841), True)
        hs.SetDeviceString(841, hs.DeviceString(186) & " " & hs.DeviceString(187) & " " & hs.DeviceLastChangeRef(186), True) 
    
    End Sub

    Try hs.WaitSecs(). The docs say the resolution is only to the second but you can do something like hs.WaitSecs(0.2)

      So like


      hs.SetDeviceString(899, hs.DeviceString(898), True)
      hs.WaitSecs(0.5)
      hs.SetDeviceString(898, hs.DeviceString(897), True)

      and so on? No additional commas or parentheses or any such?

        If you want even shorter waits, there's also an HSPhone function: hsp.WaitMS()
        hsp.WaitMS(400) = hs.WaitSecs(0.4)
        I haven't explored the limits, but presumably it's near 1 msec.

          Yes.
