Welcome!On this forum you can discuss iRidium with other users. iRidium consist of 2 main components - i3 pro app and iRidium Server. Please post here your questions, ideas or errors you find.

It would be very useful and time saving when scripts are saved the syntax of the script is checked. ie functions, variables, operators, conditional statements ( for, if, while, switch ) At this time when you run the emulator or transfer an project with a script which is known to generate an exception because of bad syntax, there is nothing being checked. You have to wait. Now depending on the system you are developing on that can be 30 secs to minutes of time wasted waiting for the emulator to start only to discover that you forgot to add an closing bracket ' }' on an if statement, It would save sooo much time if at the point of saving the script the syntax is checked and if there is an error, a dialogue displays what is wrong,
This system of syntax checking exists in many other development environments and is an feature which is missing from the iRidium script editor, Even the Logic Machine from Embedded Systems has this built in their lua scripting editor
For example, I created a popup with thermostat and I want it to appear next to the button and not always at the same place. Or I want to activate a group of popups in one position when clicking on one button and in another position when clicking on another button.
There is a great opensource Home Automation System, called openHAB available. The problem of those systems is actually lack of nice looking GUIs for users.
iRidium could solve that problem if there would be a feature available, which could connect to OpenHAB server over ethernet.
Did anyone try this? What options are available?
It would be great to have a similar property to Wrap Text in a Button item called Scroll Text. When this is enabled and the length of the text exceeds the size of the button then the text becomes scrollable.
It has been implemented from iRidium Studio 126.96.36.19911 (beta)
Use the attached project,
Set the IP Address to the GC driver to local ip of the global cache device you have.
run the project
Device is shown online
Unplug the network connector from the global cache device
the device still shows in the emulator the device is connected.
Next, turn off\unplug the network cable on your system running the emulator so that there is no network access.
The emulator still shows that the global cache driver is connected.
Update::: I have tested this with KNX IP Router, this will timeout the connection when the timeout value is reached with both cases. It should put the driver into a offline state the moment the internet connection is down.
Then I tested this with the AV TCP driver, again the same as the GC Driver.
To conclude; firstly there should be a configurable timeout setting for all drivers like the KNX IP Router driver.
Secondly, the moment that the internet connection is lost, ie no wifi, wifi card turned off and with wired network connections, network card gets disabled or network cable unplugged then ALL drivers configured in the project should be pushed into an offline state.
In a client project, iRidiium server combines all commands and feedbacks into one big driver.
In my current project with 6x Global Caches, 2 x Integras, Full Lighting, alarm system and MRA, this makes up to 1000 commands all in one long list.
To top it off, the commands/feedback are ordered by the order they were synched, so the commands/feedback may not be anywhere near the rest of the commands/feedback for that driver.
This makes it very slow going and frustrating to find what I want
The search at the top does not make it any faster.
Please Please Please
1. enable separate server drivers in the client, connecting to iRidium server on different ports (the way iRidium Gate works)
2. Add folders to iRidium Server in the client, matching the name of the drivers. Making it much easier and faster to find commands
