  • Use variable from event name in handler commands

    Is it possible to capture the event name in GCal and reuse it for creating a command in a handler? What I would like to do is:

    1. Look in one or more calendars for all events that starts with a codeword followed by a number and a name. Example "R3941656 Luke Skywalker". The handler shall only trigger if it finds "R*"

    2. Take the last 4 digits in the 7 digit number and store it as a variable

    3 Create an action that will set the code of a Z-wave lock to the number from the variable. This can be done using BLLock (I think)

    A little bacground on why I would like this. Reservations are made for tennis courts in a Google Calendar. The booking system creates an unique reservation code. Instead of creating a general code that "everybody" knows, the solution as outlined above would make it possible for the person who booked the court to unlock the gate by using their reservation #

    None of your post made any sense to me until I read this. Bravo on your creative thinking there.
