Toggle Switch Using Aeon Minimote


(Huntb) #1

I’m trying to write an app to using the button.pushed handler to toggle my switches to I can use the button.held handler for other uses. My app is compiling but when I turn a switch on it does not toggle it off when the button is pressed a second time. Here is my code

def buttonPushedHandler(evt) { log.debug "$evt.name: $evt.value, data: $evt.data, descriptionText: $evt.descriptionText" if (evt.data == '{"buttonNumber":1}') { log.debug switches1.currentValue("switch") if ( switches1.currentValue("switch") == "on" ) { switches1*.off() } else { log.debug "Turning switch1 ON" switches1*.on() } }

Can anyone help? My debug returns [on] but it does not execute the true statement. It always executes the false statement.

May not explain what’s failing, but the code I based my toggle on used contains rather than ==

private def toggle(devices,capabilityType) {
    if (capabilityType == 'switch') {
        myDebug("toggle switch Values: $devices = ${devices*.currentValue('switch')}")
        if (devices*.currentValue('switch').contains('on')) {
            myTrace("Set devices.off: ${devices}")
            devices.off()
        }
        else if (devices*.currentValue('switch').contains('off')) {
            myTrace("Set devices.on: ${devices}")
            devices.on()
        }
        else {
            myTrace("Set devices.on (Failsafe default action attempt.): ${devices}")
            devices.on()
        }
    }
...

That worked perfectly! thanks

Id like to see that code once you get it working, if you don’t mind sharing. Thanks!

Sorry, I’m just seeing this now. Here you go: (not sure why there is so much space between each line)
