Dummy device, dimmer value missing

Postby simply » Wednesday 11 January 2017 23:54

Version: 3.6333
Build Hash: 2e6733e
Compile Date: 2017-01-11 20:07:58
Platform: RPI

I've got two dummy dimmer devices for controlling a Yeelight RGB bulb via a LUA event scripts provided here somewhere.
One is for controlling the white "Temperature" and the other device for controlling the Brightness.
I can control them pretty good with the sliders and I can turn them OFF with the "button" - but not turn them ON.

A little troubleshooting revealed that I don't get the Slider/Dimmer value in the variables for the device, when I click on the ON/OFF button,
it only gives me 0.

Part of the code for the Dimmer device. It takes the current temperatur value from the Temperature device, and the Brightness-level
from the Dimmer-device to set the correct color temp and brightness:

Code: Select all

    TempValue = otherdevices_svalues[TempDevice];
    CalcValue = ((TempValue-1) * 48)+1700;
    DomValue = otherdevices_svalues[DomDevice];

The two print statements give me:
LUA: Temp=50
LUA: Dimmer=0
(Dimmer slider is actually at about 50%)

It's a little strange that I can get the temperature slider value correctly from the other dummy device, but not from the device I'm clicking on (the brightness device) !?!?!

Am I doing something wrong, is this by design (strange!) or a bug?!

After more investigation, seems like it's only the "Status" or "Data" variable that is provided to the event scripts.

I would think it should be good to also be able to get the "Level" variable. Not all devices "remember" their settings,
so being able to set the values at On or Off would be appreciated...

Unless someone knows another easy way to get hold of those values...?!
