@ Marc

I note with enthusiasm the announcement of the Device Simulator capability --

Two questions (1) Will it handle plugin specific variables which are used to display information on the front panel ?
(2) When will the mobile app have the capability to display such variables ?

1. I will have to find out.
2. I do not have an ETA at this time but it is in the works.

What about the bug tracking? Who's been working on this?

We are working on it, we have not forgotten about it. We are trying to create a system that works well for everyone. I will update everyone as soon as I have something to report. In the mean time I will give the everyone a nudge and remind them that the community has been waiting very patiently.

Device Simulator tool will get all service files and variable found on json file loaded and will allow you to set values for these variables. So let' take as example an alarm partition device. You will display the arming state by "highlighting" the corresponding button on device front panel or by using a variable in json file. In both situations, we need DetailedArmMode variable from urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:AlarmPartition2 service. Setting a value for this variable in "States" tab will be reflected also in "JSON" tab. See attached screenshots.

Another detailed that will be added to Device Simulator and it was not mentioned yet is the URL sent by the UI when you interact with controllers form the front panel. This will be displayed in JSON tab under the simulated device (Screenshots attached also)

All the Bests,

I've been driving this deliverable, internally, with several other stakeholders and 3rd party solution providers. We're moving forward to a quick conclusion, along with a few other key announcements (mid-March) surrounding development community support and tools.

Hi Marc, Andrei,

Looks very promising and will sure save a lot of trial and error reloading.

One question, will it become possible to position your own variable(s) in the space between the icon and the right arrow as standard plugins do? It would be even better if then there would be no white space with nothing shown, i.e. if you only have the variable(s) next to the icon.

See the attached example. First is a standard device showing 100% value nicely. Second is a custom device using a negative top value to sort of move the value to the desired position, but showing much empty white space and the third is how a custom device looks using the UI5 compatible json. 

The idea is that this variable and measurement would also show in the app. You would make a lot of developers happy with this.

PS: please also fix how empty variables show on the Variables tab on Firefox, and please just use the HTML input type and not div so HTML special characters can be entered again in variables. Submitted this to support before the last release came out and again after the 7.04 release came out. It is causing a lot of issues and support requests for many of us now.

Cheers Rene

That could perhaps be done with a property 'Float' in 'Display'.
As standard devices (dimmer or switch), you would still have to set negative top value, but with float 'right', the button will then correctly be placed.

Our web team will investigate this issue and we hope it will be available in the next release.

This will involve changes in lots of places in UI and for now, for generic devices (plugin devices), controls can be placed underneath the icon.
