    Changing Graphics for Virtual Devices

    Fooling around with changing graphics, I am given this array, but nowhere to browse for the one I want. It doesn't make sense. Anyone able to select their desired graphic?

    If you do it in a plugin or scripting then it can be any file in the html path. If you do it from the HS4 UI then it is in the folder you see. You can move other files into this folder. Iā€™m not certain if your new files are retained if you install a new HS4 version.

      Just add your icon set (the icon images, not the file folder) to the "C:\Program Files (x86)\HomeSeer HS4\html\images\HomeSeer\status" and you will then be able to see the new icons when you edit you device icon.

        Use the HS3 GUI and browse for whatever file you want.

          This was already a "feature" in HS3, and HS4 was not supposed to take any features away. I'm not sure why we need to submit a request to get something back that we already had.

            Because HS is not going to work on stuff unless a bunch of people request it here: https://dev.homeseer.com/servicedesk/customer/portals I will submit a request.

              True but HS3 only showed you the name, which I disliked. Ideally, the directory should be browsable showing you a preview of the image and the name.

                      rjh Don't know If this is what MattL0 mean, but yes, on the status/graphics page, if you choose to change/add a graphic, in the actual HS4 we have no option to select a sub directory, all icons appearing are from the "\html\images\HomeSeer\status" directory and we can't select any other directory from that page like we used to in HS3

                          We do have an issue logged for this and I moved it up the list. The open issue is to allow you to upload graphics to systems that are headless and its not easy to access the file system. I think that will work in this case even though you may only be moving the file if it already exists on the system running HS.

                            So having the capacity to search for a specific graphic in any /HomeSeer/html/images subfolders from the graphic/value device page is depreciated in hs4? why?

                            In hs3 we had the possibility , when a file is needed for anything (audio,pictures, etc) it is possible to search and select from any folder we want directly on the hs3 server.

                            I know you can still do it with the old hs3 pages, but it would be nice( in hs4 ui) to retrieve all the missing functions we lost from hs3, and just forget the old hs3 pages
