  • HS3 (.44) Stringitem was officially removed!

    Hi,

    When using hs.stringitem in the following code I get an error message:
    Error 1 Running script C:\Program Files\HomeSeer HS3\scripts\test-new.vb :Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.Public member 'StringItem' on type 'hsapplication' not found.
    Any idea what the problem is? I searched for stringitem in the HS3 forum but did not find anything.

    HTML Code:
    Imports System.IO
    
    Public Sub Main(ByVal Parms As Object)
        Dim arrTest as String
        Dim strFirst,strSecond as String
            
        hs.writelog("test","writelog working")
        arrTest = "ABC,DEF"
        strFirst  = hs.StringItem(arrTest,1,",")
        strSecond = hs.StringItem(arrTest,2, ",")
        
        hs.writelog("result","strFirst:" & strFirst)
        hs.writelog("result","strFirst:" & strFirst)
    
    End Sub

    I would recommend switching over to the vb.net split function as it's faster.

          hs.writelog("result","strFirst:" & strFirst)
      
      End Sub
      I found that as well, and since it's just a simple string Sub command, I just use Split

      Public Sub Main(ByVal Parms As Object)
      Dim arrTest, strFirst,strSecond as String
      Dim results() as String

      arrTest = "ABC,DEF"
      results = arrTest.Split(",")
      strFirst = results(0)
      strSecond = results(1)
      hs.writelog("result","strFirst:" & strFirst)
      hs.writelog("result","strSecond:" & strSecond)

      End Sub

        Thank you for your suggestions!

        So is hs.stringitem broken? It looks like I'm using it correctly.

          I can't find the note, but I remember reading that some hs. functions were not ported because the equivalent functions were easily accomplished in vb.net. I think hs.stringitem was one of those.

          I do know I had to modify a couple of scripts.

            I seem to remember that too, but it looks like hs.StringItem was not depricated in HS3. I would suggest posting a bug report.

            Here's a link to the HS3 scripting docs: http://homeseer.com/support/homeseer...lp/default.htm
            Code:
            StringItem
            
            Purpose
            This function retrieves the substring from a string.  Given a string like "data;data1;data2", this function will retrieve the string at the specified index.  For instance, passing the index as 2 would return the string "data1".
            
            Parameters
            Parameter: str
            Type: string
            Description: This is the string to search in.
            
            Parameter: index
            Type: long
            Description: This is the number of the string you wish returned. 1=string 1,2=string 2, etc.
            
            Parameter: sep
            Type: string
            Description: This is the string that separates all other strings.
            
            Returns
            Return value: string part
            Type: string
            Description: This is the part of the string requested.
            Best regards,
            -Mark-

              StringItem not working

              I just ran into this too. Is someone creating a bug report to have it removed from the Documentation?

              Are there any other functions documented that no longer work (like hs.GetEventEX) that should be removed from the docs?

              I've spent several hours over the past couple days trying to figure out why I couldn't get these two functions working....

              Thanks,

                Rick confirmed in the developers forum about 6 months ago that hs.Stringitem was not going to be included in HS3.

                If you want a drop in replacement use the following:

                PHP Code:
                Function Stringitem(ByVal Str As StringByVal Index As IntegerByval Sep As String) As String
                Try
                Dim Result() As String System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Split(StrSystem.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Escape(Sep))
                Return 
                Result(Index-1)
                Catch
                Return 
                ""
                End Try
                End Function 
                change your hs.Stringitem code to Stringitem

                  I have a note on this, I will remove it from the docs.

                  We did remove it from the API since vb.net has better ways to handle it. That function was added way back when HS was VB6.

                    I appreciate the responses. My key concern was the possibility of other functions that are documented but not functional/supported/working in HS3.

                    I discovered the two I mentioned above the hard way, and would like to avoid un-necessary debugging effort in the future.

                    Rich - do you have a list of documented but non-working functions in HS3? I am aware of 3 so far...

                        Is there going to be a HS3 scripting section on the forum?
                        I use all x10 and about 60-70% .txt scripts right now.
                        After looking at the list Jon00 posted, I am going to be in trouble.

                          Good idea, I created a HS3 Scripting forum under the Development->Scripting section.

                            I am reviewing the docs, right now I am not aware of any other functions, but there could be some. I'll post if I find any.
