    Removing virtual icon - want text only

    Sorry for the dumb question but, how can I get rid of the little circle to the left of the virtual icon. I only want to display text...

    You would have to create a blank icon and add it to the device string to get rid of the default circle.

      Thanks Rupp. But are you sure??? The reason I ask is that Jim Doolittle's thermostat plugin has lines for 'Active' , 'Table P' or 'Heat' etc. It just seems like a pain especially if you have something other than default cell colours.
      Maybe Jim could verify???

        Robert,
        I'm not sure what Jim's script does but if you create a blank icon and add it to the device string it will show the icon.

          change font size

          Thanks Rupp. Ok I've thought about using an icon in my cell as well as the text. I'd like to shrink the text size to 7 pt. or so if possible.
          I've used:
          PHP Code:
          hs.SetDeviceString "s20""<img src='images\signalgreen.gif' align=absmiddle>" &" <font x color='Yellow'>Last Backup:<font color='Green'> Incremental" 
          But the font is actually larger. Have I got the syntax right?

          I'd also like to put a date stamp as well since the Last Change status doesn't seem to change as expect when the event executes.

          thanks in advance

          Robert

          Hum... I can't seem to just display text with this post. The hs.SetDevicexxx string is being interpreted...

              Then just copy the blank icon into the images/homeseer directory, name it the same as the blank string you are using and it ultra will replace the string for you.

                Sorry.. perhaps I've confused you guys. All I want to do is shrink the text of the display and perhaps add a timestamp as well.
                Seems I can make the font smaller - though only when I don't have an icon.
                It's my hs.SetDeviceString statement I need help with.

                  PHP Code:
                  hs.SetDeviceString "s20""<img src='images\signalgreen.gif' align=absmiddle>" &" <font size = 1 color='Yellow'>Last Backup:<font color='Green'> Incremental"True 
                  Try this and the addition of true on the end of the setDeviceString will update the last update column.

                    Thanks - font size = 1 did it. I'd like to set either the "Last Change" column to the current time of the event. Either that, or place a date/time stamp in my text. How can I do either of these? I just figured the "Last Lange" would be set when I tickled this virtual device through an event.

                    Thanks again for all your help

                        I would gather from Rupps previous statments that the TRUE on the end of the statement he provided will "tickle" your "Lange" (I surmise you mean change) column.

                        You can always look up the setdevicestring in the help for more information. The help is tremendously helpful!

                        I hope that helps!

                          Yep the true will auto update the last change column.

                              Can you post an example of what your device strings are to set the icons up? I just wish that the online manual for ultraview/ultrastatus was online as this may clear up a lot of things for me.

                              Thanks,
