  • PI Func 'capabilities' ?

    Hi all,

    Sorry if this is documented somewhere; I couldn't seem to find it.

    When HSTouch server starts, it calls a Plugin function named "capabilities", then throws an error to the log as my default PI handler returns empty string.

    Error in log: "HSTouch had an Error retrieving the capabilities with Error = Conversion from string "" to type 'Integer' is not valid."

    I could not find any docs on what this is, or how to appropriately respond to it.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Have a look in the SDK manual here:

      Exactly as NicolaiL says - although I am not really sure it is used as much in HS3 as it was in HS2 (as now have device api's for thermostats/media). In HS2 you used to get IO, X10 or IR and IIRC there was some additional functions called in HS2 if you had X10/IR selected.

        Guys,

        Thanks for the quick response! Sorry I was not more clear in my question -

        I do return the correct value for "Capabilities" API function, but I am getting a PluginFunction call with procName == "capabilities"

        Code:
                public int Capabilities()
                {
                    return (int)HomeSeerAPI.Enums.eCapabilities.CA_IO;
                }
        
                public object PluginFunction(string procName, object[] parms)
                {
                    // This is being invoked with "procName" == "capabilities"
                }

          Yes this has come up before and not sure there was ever an answer, http://board.homeseer.com/showthread.php?t=175223

          It's odd that it does not come up more often, perhaps it is a specific set of capabilities/devices/API's that the HSTouch Server is looking for which in turn calls into PluginFunction looking for capabilties, or it is some legacy stuff left in by accident.
