  • Sending Message via script fails

    Hi!

    Firstly great plugin! I've got this working nicely in terms of receiving messages and performing actions.

    I can send reply's using the send message action ok but can't send messages from scripts. I've tried both from within a script and from an event.

    Please see output below from logs. From what I could see from debugging the script it was failing on this line: plugin.PluginFunction("SendMessage", {s1(0), s1(1)})

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks
    Chris

      Try this, add Imports System.Core to the beginning of BBMessenger.vb file

      -----new script file----


      Imports System.Core
      'BBMessenger example script on how to send a message via script
      Public Sub Main(ByVal Parms As Object)
      Dim logto As String = "BBMessenger-Script"
      hs.WriteLog(logto, "Running script")
      hs.WriteLog(logto, "Sending Message: " + Parms.ToString())
      Dim plugin = New HomeSeerAPI.PluginAccess(hs, "BBMessenger", "")
      Dim s1 As String() = Parms.ToString().Split("|".ToCharArray())
      If (s1.Length >= 2) Then
      If plugin IsNot Nothing Then
      plugin.PluginFunction("SendMessage", {s1(0), s1(1)})
      Else
      hs.WriteLog(logto, "Error sending message. Not able to locate the plug-in.")
      End If
      End If
      hs.WriteLog(logto, "Exiting script")

              I am able to replicate the issue on Debian 9. I think it is a HomeSeer issue, I am going to log a support case with HomeSeer.


              Updated script below to fix the object compile error. With this fix now I am getting Error: Compiling script /home/brbjr/HomeSeer/scripts/BBMessenger.vb: http://mono-project.com/Bugs)

                Thanks Bruce, i've tried with the changes to see if any different on Rasp Pi and it gives The import 'System.Core' could not be found, same still if I try and import this at the top.

                Will definitely be purchasing this plugin if I can get this resolved, got it working nicely in a script to receive messages and control devices and events, just need to be able to reply with a status.

                Cheers

                  Chris,

                  I found a fix in the script syntax, mono is very picky . I pushed a update to the HS Store but it will not overwrite the BBMessenger.vb file, you need to manually update the file with the script below.

                  '---BBmessenger.vb script-----------

                  'BBMessenger example script on how to send a message via script
                  Public Sub Main(ByVal Parms As Object)
                  Dim logto As String = "BBMessenger-Script"
                  hs.WriteLog(logto, "Running script")
                  hs.WriteLog(logto, "Sending Message: " + Parms.ToString())
                  Dim plugin As HomeSeerAPI.PluginAccess = New HomeSeerAPI.PluginAccess(hs, "BBMessenger", "")
                  Dim s1 As String() = Parms.ToString().Split("|".ToCharArray())
                  If (s1.Length >= 2) Then
                  If plugin IsNot Nothing Then
                  Dim message(1) As Object
                  message(0) = s1(0)
                  message(1) = s1(1)
                  plugin.PluginFunction("SendMessage", message)
                  Else
                  hs.WriteLog(logto, "Error sending message. Not able to locate the plug-in.")
                  End If
                  End If
                  hs.WriteLog(logto, "Exiting script")
                  End Sub
                  '---End BBmessenger.vb script-----------

                    Excellent that's sorted, thanks for resolving so quickly.

                    Is there any way to send images in messages? No worries if not just would be nice addition. But can always send a link to image instead.

                      I researched sending pictures/files via XMPP messages in the past and determined that you have to reference a hosted url in the message.
