React on specific string

Hi guys

I got feedback strings from Lutron to my Netlinx controller - reporting about keypads LED status.

These status feedbacks, I would like to translate to channel feedback - to my 8400i panel.

The strings look like this:

KLS, [01:05:XX], YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

"XX" are the adress of the keypad, and YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY are LED stauts (1 or 0)

Now I need to channel react (TP2,821 = 1) if keypad adress 40 - LED number 1 is ON
(KLS, [01:05:40], 100000000000000000000)

How do I pick out adress 40 - and then sniff out LED status characters - and upon that make my channel feedback....?

Regards

Brian Andersen

    Vincen shared a module on the forums that is good for reference here: http://www.amxforums.com/showthread.php?1739-Lutron-HWI-with-TCP-IP

    You might want to do some searching using the keywords "parsing". There are several ways to accomplish what you're doing. This thread: http://www.amxforums.com/showthread.php?4406-how-do-you-use-IP_CLIENT_OPEN-to-get-info-from-a-website has some pretty good info stuffed in there somewhere about parsing.

    Brian,
    a couple things...

    firstly, a simple way to do this is create a cell-by-cell conditional (something like a quick for loop will do) and examine each digit.

    But, secondly..
    The AMX Lutron module that's been around since dinosaurs roamed the earth works very well and will do a lot of this heavy lifting for you.

    So, I'd not try and reinvent the wheel unless you're just bursting with curiosity and plenty of time to play around.

    IMHO..

    First of all I don't think you'll ever be able to pick out a KP address of 40 unless you're parsing an RF link since the wired lnks only go up to #32 but anyway.

    Assuming you don't care about the processor or link you can do this which is about as simple a way to do it as possible. No loops or structure but it will require alot of lines of code.

    Note: the "atoi" function will ignore the non numeric ascii characters and covert only the ascii "40" to and interger.
     {
         while(find_string(cHWI_Str,"':'",1))
    	  {//if you don't care about processr number or link number
    	  remove_string(cHWI_Str,"':'",1) ;
    	  }
         if(find_string(find_string(cHWI_Str,"'], '",1))
    	  {
    	  STACK_VAR INTEGER nKP ;
    	  STACK_VAR CHAR cKLS_Str[24] ;
    	  
    	  nKP = atoi(remove_string(cHWI_Str,"'], '",1)) ;
    	  cKLS_Str = cHWI_Str ;//assumes $0D,$0A already removed
    	  SWITCH(nKP)
    	       {
    	       CASE 40://can't be 40 but........
    		    {
    		    [dvHWI_UI_Arry,1] = cKLS_Str[1] == '1' ;
    		    [dvHWI_UI_Arry,2] = cKLS_Str[2] == '1' ;
    		    [dvHWI_UI_Arry,3] = cKLS_Str[3] == '1' ;
    		    
    		     //and so on..........
    		    [dvHWI_UI_Arry,24] = cKLS_Str[24] == '1' ;
    		    }
    	       CASE 30:
    		    {
    		    [dvHWI_UI_Arry,25] = cKLS_Str[1] == '1' ;
    		    [dvHWI_UI_Arry,26] = cKLS_Str[2] == '1' ;
    		    [dvHWI_UI_Arry,27] = cKLS_Str[3] == '1' ;
    		    
    		    //and so on..........
    		    [dvHWI_UI_Arry,48] = cKLS_Str[24] == '1' ;
    		    }
    	       //add more cases for more kps
    	       }
    	  }
         }

    Great - you are right - it only goes to 32, it was just to make an example

    Might want to change this:
     if(find_string(find_string(cHWI_Str,"'], '",1))
    	  {
    
    to this:
     if(ind_string(cHWI_Str,"'], '",1))
    	  {
    
    beter chance of working this way.

    It won't work at all if he does that :P
