Various brands of multisensor, all exhibiting the same problem in Blocky
I have searched the forum and I think I see what is really this issue reported several times in different ways but never resolved. I think I have found the underlying bug. Possibly it isn't Blocky but some layer beneath but this is the best I can do and I hope it is found useful.
Here is my Blocky code: (please ignore the Tuesday comparison!) Here is the relevant extract from the log
You will see from line 2 the temperature value according to Blocky but this is the raw un-parsed string from the multi-sensor. Blocky should know to parse that string to extract the value before the first ";" semi-colon. The same sensor is visible under both humidity and temperature. Bockly should select the correct part of the ";" delimited sensor string but does not do so - as you can see from the log.
Code: Select all

As a consequence of incorrect parsing the comparison of the thermostats number - correctly returned - with the un-parsed string from the multi-sensor does not and can not work.
Also, this is not a sensor problem - I have three different types of multisensor - they all return strings formatted like this, and other parts of Domoticz do correctly extract the correct sub-string.
