    Looking for HS4 Insteon plugin UI input

    I'm starting to work on the HS4 UI that involved adding, editing, and deleting Devices and Groups

    I guess there are two approaches:

    1. Rebuild the complex set of webpages similar to HS3 (this will take longer, and must be changed to fit the new HS4 UI standards )
    2. Build a simple add page for devices and groups, and then have the insteon settings built into the new HS4 feature pages

    comments and suggestions welcome on this UI topic only.

    ** Please don't post issues or comments about using the HS3 plugin with HS4 here. I will delete them. I need to keep this thread focused

    Even though I have HS4 Pro installed I find that I use the HS3 legacy pages. I mainly use my windows 10 desktop computer and like the more compact HS3 views. So I would prefer option one. But I understand sooner or later I will have to move to the HS4 pages. From a programing viewpoint and future proofing your Insteon plugin option two would be best and I would have to adapt to the new look & feel.

      I'm not exactly sure I understand the impacts of one way or the other, but I will say I do like and often use the Manage Devices page, where I can see all of my Insteon devices listed together with important information. I like checking comm stats and running comm tests from that page. I also like being able to see all of my Insteon groups together, and copying one to make a slightly different one. And then there's the main Insteon config and functions page, I'm not sure where that would go. I don't yet run HS4 and don't know what a HS4 feature page is, so maybe that's where the top-level Insteon config would go?

        I started the UI for device settings. the problem as I see it is i can't replicate all the device configurations (edit link, reprogram butns) on the device setting page. I can only put simple settings

        see the following post
