  CML IDE Tools V2 Validation
Posted by: rbroders - 20 minutes ago - Forum: Driver Development - Replies (1)

I'm working on my first V2 driver and I'm curious what this menu item does.

My driver is a Brultech 1240 update so I am implementing the RESMON DevClass.

Most of my fields are RESMON#XXX~Watts, etc.. 
   

 I have also implemented the QueryResInfo/ResourceList QueryTextVal.

Code:
"CH1 Power Direction (Boolean)", "CH1 Mean Current (Amps)", "CH1 Instantaneous Power (Watts)", "CH1 Daily Power (WHrs)", "CH2 Power Direction (Boolean)", "CH2 Mean Current (Amps)", "CH2 Instantaneous Power (Watts)", "CH2 Daily Power (WHrs)", "AUX1 Instantaneous Power (Watts)", "AUX1 Daily Power (WHrs)", "AUX2 Instantaneous Power (Watts)", "AUX2 Daily Power (WHrs)", "AUX3 Instantaneous Power (Watts)", "AUX3 Daily Power (WHrs)", "AUX4 Instantaneous Power (Watts)", "AUX4 Daily Power (WHrs)", "AUX5 Instantaneous Power (Watts)", "AUX5 Daily Power (WHrs)"
"RESMON#CH1~Positive", "RESMON#CH1~Amps", "RESMON#CH1~Watts", "RESMON#CH1~WHrs24Hrs", "RESMON#CH2~Positive", "RESMON#CH2~Amps", "RESMON#CH2~Watts", "RESMON#CH2~WHrs24Hrs", "RESMON#AUX1~Watts", "RESMON#AUX1~WHrs24Hrs", "RESMON#AUX2~Watts", "RESMON#AUX2~WHrs24Hrs", "RESMON#AUX3~Watts", "RESMON#AUX3~WHrs24Hrs", "RESMON#AUX4~Watts", "RESMON#AUX4~WHrs24Hrs", "RESMON#AUX5~Watts", "RESMON#AUX5~WHrs24Hrs"
When I try the validation I get this error:
   

Maybe its mad because Positive is a Boolean field (which indicates the direction of power flow)…  No need to complain about the same two fields seven times though eh?

  Enhance Driver Test Harness Field Monitor
Posted by: rbroders - Yesterday, 09:49 AM - Forum: Driver Development - Replies (1)

It would be great if this worked like the one in the Admin Interface!

Being able to see all the field values at once is a huge benefit.

  Changer Manager
Posted by: wcwworley - 09-20-2018, 06:05 PM - Forum: How-To - Replies (2)

I know I have used a changer manager in the past for multiple Sony DVP-CX777ES changers.  I cannot find this changer manager.  Does anybody know if this manager still exists are if it has been discontinued?

  Issues debugging IP based driver
Posted by: jnolting - 09-20-2018, 01:49 PM - Forum: Driver Development - Replies (5)

I'm having issues trying to write an IP based driver. When I start the driver for debugging the IP address passed into InitializeSocket is always null. I wrote an IP driver a few years ago and don't remember having this issue. Am I missing something obvious?

Thank you

  CML Driver IDE docs - where?
Posted by: rbroders - 09-18-2018, 04:56 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

Can't seem to find the key mapping for setting a breakpoint. 


It would be nice if this was available in the right-click menu...

  "Client Side Driver Directory Could Not be Cleaned Out"
Posted by: TurboSam - 09-17-2018, 03:30 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (12)

I installed 5.2.3 in my master server (which runs only CQC and the Upstart configuration when needed), and that part of the install is fine. 

I put 5.2.3 on a new laptop (running Win10 Pro) that replaced an old laptop that I use/will use for most of my event and interface configuration and changes (since the master server is not as convenient).  On the laptop, I enabled only the management function, device control (even thought there are no devices connected to the laptop), the interface viewer, and the tray monitor.  Whenever I try to open the AI, I get a message from "Admin Intf" that "The client side drive could not be cleaned out.  That typically occurs when CQC is not running locally.  You could end up running out of date client side driver interfaces."

I make sure (from the tray monitor) that both the client service and app shell are running before trying to start the AI but I still get the message on my initial attempt to open the AI.  If I click OK, the AI opens, and if I then close the AI, I don't usually get the message on a subsequent opening of the AI.  If I try to open the interface viewer on the new laptop it does not seem to be a problem--it seems to happen just with the AI.  I have virtually every CQC .exe file protected in Windows Defender, and while I also have Bitdefender on the laptop (but not on the master server), it does not seem to be a firewall issue since I can get to the AI if I click OK.

Is this a problem?  What does it mean?  Does it refer to client side driver interfaces on the laptop (none) or client side driver interfaces on my master server (eg Elk)? 

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

  Can't Paste Description Repo Manager
Posted by: rbroders - 09-17-2018, 11:14 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (4)

Something happened in 5.3.2, and I can no longer Past into the "Edit Description" window of the repository manager.

I use Add Collection manually, and while I am happy to type the bulk of the data from IMDB.com, typing the Description is a bit tedious!  Copy and Paste was very easy when it worked.  I have tried Ctrl-V and also the right-click context menu which works for other fields, but not the Edit Description pop-up dialog.

Thanks -- Bob

  Read from serial port
Posted by: wcwworley - 09-15-2018, 05:58 PM - Forum: How-To - Replies (1)

Can anyone help me with this.  I have a blu-ray player that has 2-way serial communication.  I'm having a problem trying to figure out how to read from this serial port.  Sending commands is no problem. But I just can't figure out how to create a field to receive data coming from the device. The data received is text data and not hex.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So, though I'm not in any major danger from the Hurricane, it's basically going to do almost a 360 directly around us here. So we are going to be on the edge of it from tomorrow until Sunday. We'll get no crazy high winds (at least not forecast) but sort of high and a fair bit of rain. And of course there will be higher winds all around us where the main body is looping about. So it won't be a surprise if I lose power at some point in there. 

So I may be offline for some period of time. This isn't going to be any Hugo (thankfully, where I was without power for over a week) but there is opportunity for some local power infrastructure to get damaged at some point here. Of course I just saw that there are a number of nuclear plants in the path as well, so it's a good thing it's no Hugo.

At least we won't be short on water around here for a while.

Big Grin A Big Thanks on my 1000th Forum Message
Posted by: kblagron - 09-12-2018, 09:36 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

I decided that on my 1000th message to the forum to let everyone know how much fun I have had since 05-28-2007 configuring my system using CQC.  At the time, I was preparing to build a new house and knew that I wanted to do something "Smart" before "Smart" was cool.  What is hard to believe is that it is over 11 years later, and I still enjoy adding new things to the system.  The learning curve was steep at first, and I barely even touch all of what CQC can do, but I have been able to make a truly automated home for most of the things in my house.

I want to personally thank Dean and the people on this forum for the unbelievable support that has been given.  In my opinion, it is one of the most powerful systems out there.  The forum has been fantastic and unbelievably helpful, and I enjoyed the Webinars, of which I would like to see more.

I am now up to 22 different devices I control along with weather/radar, graphs, video cameras, database collection, and Amazon Echo voice control, plus it can all be done from anywhere in the world.

One of these days, when I finish building my interfaces and adding new devices Smile , I want to update the User Systems section, with what I have done.

Thanks again everyone, and especially Dean!

Regards,
Blake
