    Geez, I didn't know how easy it was to actually change these icons using Ultrastatus. Time to get rid of the rest of my scripts that I am using to do the same function.

    Searching on the message boards has most of the answers that I was looking for, although it is not very intuitive the first time around setting this up.

    I don't see the example unless I am missing something here.

    I must be having a brain block to get this working.

    Yep the true will auto update the last change column.

    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!

    Anyone on this???

    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 displayed. 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 - 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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I dont know if this helps.... but I am using UltraStatus

    simple...
    give it a name...
    give it the text for on
    give it text for off
    give it text for unknown
    give it the house codes
    and away we are.. im actually using it for icons though...

    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...

    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.
