  • "Import" graphics into a Virtual Device?

    Is there anyway to like "import" a lot's of graphic symbols into a Virtual Device?

    Example: I have a few (6) virtual light sensors that in a combination of ways control the lightning indoors. It started out easy enough, as it always does, with something like "Virtual Light Sensor" (summery of 5 different light sensors combined, plus one exterior) and then a "Virtual Turn Down Level" (a VD that holds the turndown level) which of course created a 3rd VD: "True Dim Level". And well we could continue to include all the others. However it would be rather nice to get the graphics from say another VD or something - without having to define them manually - just import the "structure" so to speak since they all have the exact same base definition on light level? But with 6 of them I am a bit lazy....

    Any ideas?

    It might require backing up a bit and perhaps no less effort depending on how much other development you've done with them so far, but you could start with one virtual device as a template with the graphics set, then copy and modify that device to create the others.

      tell me....where is the ability to copy a virtual device in HS3? I have never seen such a thing.

              My Tag plugin also has a utility to copy status pairs from an existing device to a virtual device, but if you already created one by hand, then the 'copy' above should work for you.
