Scheduling a function with a variable

I’m working on a smartapp that on a subscribed event will poll a device i.e. event “on” poll every minuet, event “off” poll every hour. My current code works fine as long as it only manages 1 device and i think this is dumb.

Currently where i’m stuck is passing the variable to the scheduled function and i’m using pollster to work it out.

def poll(Integer min) {
    log.debug "${min}"

schedule(“0 0/1 0 0 * * *”, poll(device)) passes the variable but fails horribly in this case device = 1

I also tried schedule(“0 0/1 0 0 * * *”, “poll(${device})”) and it fails less horribly, device still = 1

What am i missing?

So let me get straight what you are trying to do.

Are you trying to call an action based on the number that is passed through to the poll method?

Poll function in device type? Have you tried device.poll()?

nope not in a devicetype, but a smartapp… but your comment made me realize i was making it more complex than it needed to be. device.poll() or in my case schedule("51 0/1 * * * ?", "${evt.device}.poll()") did the trick THX much!
