  • DayDate0 now has Date AND Time

    Jeff:

    For some time I have been shamelessly using the HSTouch weather templates you provided, including the Current Weather screen with a button that passes some parameters obtained from script statements to a smaller "today's forecast" screen. Among those parameters is the current DATE via this script:

    Code:
    [$SCRIPT=&hs.GetINISetting("Forecast1","DayDate0","","weatherXML\weatherInfo.ini")]
    This worked fine with WU - however with DarkSky the DayDate0 value is now a date AND time value (I checked my weatherinfo.ini file just to make sure). The larger value takes up too much room for the space I have on the HSTouch screen. I'm sure I can figure out how to chop off the time - but just wondering if you intended to make this change to DayDate0...

    Regards,
    BBB

    Are you using the DayDate devices as well? I am not seeing the time in the devices but I am seeing it in the ini file. I suspect it is the difference in how the value was provided in the download file.

      Jeff:

      Yes, I have been using the value from the .ini file. I don't know how I would pass the value from a device to the screen in the same way I have been from the .ini file...

        Should just be able to do this:

        Code:
        [$SCRIPT=&hs.DeviceString(5678)]
        Change 5678 to the reference ID of the DayDate0 device.

          Definately, move to using the device string. I have been moving away from ini files as there have been many times that they have gotten corrupted and I have had to pull out my backups. weatherXML used to have 6 ini files but I am down to 3 now. When I rewrite the alerts section that will get rid of one more ini file.

              Hmm -

              Seems to be inconsistency in Day Dates 0-1 and Day Dates 2-7; maybe I'm missing something?

                Try this. Go to the Locations tab in wxml. Near the top is Date Format for this location. Click on the dropdown and select a format. The next time that the forecast runs check to see if the date matches the selected format.

                  Jeff:

                  Okay, chalk this up to "ye of little patience" -- I had just created the Day 2-7 Date devices, but it appears they hadn't hit the forecast update cycle - when I came back to my system, they now all are of the same format. Sorry about that, chief...

                  Regards,
                  Paul

                    No problem. I would still recommend that you take a look at the Locations tab and view the date formats in the dropdown. There are 3 new ones. I've been using the 3/26/19 format.

                      Jeff with the way you are doing the day names now (looks like a full week's worth, value is chosen based on numeric value), how do I use that in HSTouch?

                        To try to be more succinct,
                        Code:
                        [$SCRIPT=&hs.DeviceString(xxx)]
                        No longer works, nor does &hs.DeviceValue(xxx)

                          Use Status Text.
                          and if you want to use it in a script.
                          hs.DeviceVSP_GetStatus(RefID, hs.DeviceValue(RefID), ePairStatusControl.Status)

                            Thanks! It was the script form that I needed! I started reading about VSPairs in the HS3Help file and my eyes started rolling back in my head...

                              Or if you prefer using the non changing Device Tech Address.

                              hs.DeviceVSP_GetStatus(hs.GetDeviceRef("Location 1 HST Name 0"), hs.DeviceValue(hs.GetDeviceRef("Location 1 HST Name 0")), ePairStatusControl.Status)

                              Just replace 0 with the number for the day you want to display.
