    The device's string changes and contains - multiple strings

    Is it possible to enter multiple strings for "The device's string changes and contains"? In case it is possible How

    An OR IF function will not work.

    no it's not possible.
    why an OR IF will not work? Have you tested it? in HS3 or HS4?

        Found the issue.

        Have to save the previous condition before adding the next one.

          I created the following event is HS4:

          The device string changed and became 4 Bft (was 3 Bft), see below. However the event was not triggered. What am I doing wrong?

            I tried multiple Easytrigger options that are not working

            As regular expression \b(4 Bft) or \b(4Bft)

            String changes and becomes 4 Bft

              If you set the log level to Debug, do you see the string change for this device?
              It should be something like:
              "Device XXX string changed to ABCD"

              If you don't see it in the logs, it means that the plugin or the script that set the string, calls SetDeviceString with the last parameter being false, which prevent other plugins to see the change.

                DEBUG Device 1579 string changed to 3Bft

                But string changes and becomes 3Bft is not working.

                Also the Regex is not working.

                  If I use:
                  String changes and contains 3 it is working but I don't want to go that route. (as 11 also contains 1).

                    Also strange. This event will in all cases be triggered.

                    In case of a wind strength of 3, the event with value 3 will run and the event with a value of 5 (also for all other values).

                        I tried to replicate this problem using the following 2 events:

                        when I manually run the second event everything work as expected, the first event is triggered

                        Could you try to test your event with an immediate command like I did with the second event?
                        If it works, then maybe the problem is the string that is set by the plugin has some characters that are not displayed but result in the comparison in EasyTrigger to be false.

                        Notes:
                        - After you create or change an easy trigger, you have to wait 15 seconds for the change to be active, you will see in the logs when the plugin refresh the triggers.
                        - the trigger "changes and becomes" will only fire if the string actually changes, in my example if I run the second event twice the second run will not trigger the first event as the string is already "4 Bft"

                          Thnx.

                          This works, so it seems that the problem is in the string.

                          Will create a workaround this weekend.

                          Thanks for the help.
