getting started cqc with a 8870, stuck
I have a home that has the following:

5 aprilaire thermostats
GE caddx nx8e system
Home theater system

I have installed your Aprilaire 8870 driver and am successfully able to see the 5 thermostats state info in the browse driver and fields button. I am now trying to use a preconfigured white theme with the HVAC overlay. I notice there is nothing in the hvac overlay so I tried to add a button but it does not find the thermostat driver that I see in the server driver interface. I know there are people that have already created nice Aprilaire thermostat pictures and such but I am not there yet to use the stuff. I just started looking at the stuff yesterday. Why can't I see the thermostat (my named moniker) driver in the interface template editor?



P.S I think this system has a lot of power am I trying to go through the videos at the same time adding a real product into your software/
Have you watched the "Interface Editor Overview" video yet? That might be the best way to get a handle on how to get started with your own template.

After you watch that, you will probably want to read the "Interface Development Guide" which is found under the Technical Documents Section of the website. This document explains what each widget type does and also about the different tabs you will find when you program the widget and what each thing does. It is pretty daunting looking at first, but don't be afraid to skip around to the specific widget you are trying to use and read just about it.

Other systems used:
SageTV w/ cablecard tuner & multiple extenders for viewing
BlueIris and IP cameras for CCTV
Incredible PBX for home phone
What type of button are you trying to create? Is this a command button and you don't see the Aprilaire fields as the target of a field write command or something like that, or is it a more specialized button like a check box or inc/dec button?
