Hi, I want to set an image of a panel depending on the value of this panel
I've tried this
.........
case "F4":
lblid = "CURRENTICON";
if (value == 1) { value = "."; } else if (value == 0) { CF.widget("0","Widgetpage","TTV").setImage(); }
break; .........

My image "0" is stored under pageTag "Widgetpage" and activity tag "TTV".
This doesn't run

I have tried

.........
case "F4":
lblid = "CURRENTICON";
if (value == 1) { value = "."; } else if (value == 0) { CF.widget("0","Widgetpage","TTV").executeActions(); }
break; .........

to play e.g. a soundfile stored under the same activity/page tag
and this runs fine.

Why doesn't the setting of an image work ?
Where is my mistake?

Regards,
Fischi

It is not good practice to set an image in a widget using CF.widget. If the widget you are referencing is on a page which is not the current page, I don’t think this will work. It will not fail but as soon as you leave the current activity, if it actually did work, your changes are reverted. Instead, use GUI.widget() to retrieve the widget on the current page and set the image Note that GUI.widget also works from inside the Page script as well.

Next, your setImage call has no arguments. You want to do something like this.

GUI.widget(‘TARGET’).setImage(CF.widget(‘SOURCE’,’MYPAGE’,’RESOURCES’).getImage(0),0);

Finally, buttons have 2 images with index 0 and 1. You see that I used index 0 above. I am a bit confused here because you mention setting images into a panel with CF.widget yet you then say that executeActions works on this same widget reference.

Please review my example above as well as searching the dev guide for setImage. If you could provide clarity regarding my confusion or email me a small config explains where to look for your code, that would help me tremendously.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Lyndel,
please excuse me for my late reply.

I've got it working as follows :

...............

case "F4":
lblid = "HS-2";
if (value == 0) { widget("CURRENTICON").setImage(CF.widget("Moon","RECOURCES").getImage(0),0);
return; } else
if (value == 100) { widget("CURRENTICON").setImage(CF.widget("Sun","RECOURCES").getImage(0),0);
return; };
break;
...................

It shows the icon "Moon" or "Sun" in a panel with the
tag "CURRENTICON) depending on the value.
The values are provided from a little server installed on my HomeSeer HA system and its possible to get other values to show different weather icons.

Regards,
Fischi

Great! Thanks for the update. I'm still working on openweather.org weather implementation. I got actual live date last night as have spent the last week or so gutting my original Yahoo Weather which is 13+ years old to move from wxdata to the new site.

The Weather 3.0 module will support lookup by id, zip, and lat/lon and will support all 3 units (Standard - Kelvin, Metric - Celcius, and Imperial - Fahrenheit). One thing I am going to question is the formatting of date display. Right now, I am doing MM-DD-YYYY. For other countries, users may want DD-MM-YYYY or maybe just standardize on YYYY-MM-DD.

Interested in your thoughts on this one.

I am using a the Philips HTTP module with some very minor modifications to support clients doing their own state management. Philips specifically did not make visible the READYSTATE object in their implementation. I have rectified that.

The Http module does not support via req.responseXML the removal of the XML Preprocessing instruction which to anyone wanting to use this library with openweathermap.org, they need to do custom text request handling and then convert to XML which is exactly what I did to overcome the issue below.

Note that if in the XML response string, the preprocessing instruction is present, you get an error that 'xml is a reserved word'. I have a temporary hack in place until I can get this last one sorted in an updated Philips Http Library ++.

I would be interested in DD-MM--YYYY

Lyndel I have parts of my project integrated in Scott's module (HTC like).
I've implemented temperature high, temperature low, outside temperature and icon until now.

Let's stay connected

Kind regards,
Fischi
