Re: TP-Link HS110

Hi All Just making sure I have everything right before I leave the Power monitor running for a day or two. Changed the location of the plug to record my frequent coffee boils. The kettle shows the following: 1500 Watt 120 VAC Being a resistive element, I guess the power factor will be close to 1. Th...

Re: Debian use Full screen

Hi All Thank you TJF for that explanation, so I looked further. Found this: https://www.xfce-look.org/content/show.php?content=140039 No borders theme for xfwm4 window manager. Works great, takes a bit of time to get used to, but now (knowing the cgui weakness) I have initialised my screen to 1024 x...

Re: TP-Link HS110

Hi All @badidea, dowloaded the zip and it compiles ok, but when I run it: "Waiting for connection" and then quits with Error 141. I could not find anywhere in the code where your IP detail is stored. Without thoroughly reading all the code can you explain this please, so I can test it for ...

Re: TP-Link HS110

Hi All

Depends on your setup of the forum preferences (time locale/zone).
That explains it, as mine was set up in "a land down under"

Re: TP-Link HS110

Hi All

BTW: "11-05-2019" would be 'May the 11th' in most of Europe.

And in Australia as well. I still have to think when I get asked for my Birthday at the Pharmacy.
I just wondered why your replies were coming in as the 5th.

Re: TP-Link HS110

Hi All E-STOP is often used for 'Emergency Stop' (normally big red buttons). Also in your case? 'Ergengy stop' over WiFi does not sound very safe, but if you only control lights then probably fine. Yes, button is Green untill pressed, then goes Red and also displays Error message in Red. Green for G...

Re: TP-Link HS110

Hi All I thought I would list the features of the gui so anyone interested can suggest other features. In the next week or so I will post pictures. It is interesting that the Plugs have about 23 fields of Info and the Bulbs 50. Many of these are not relevant to the operation, so other then recording...

Re: Debian use Full screen

Hi All I will study your example , however I disagree on your cgui comment. If I place a window at 0,0 then I expect the Window Manager to place my screen @ 0,0 Not at 0,30 which is what is happening. Basically the window manager is re-defining the coordinates. Additionally I can set all the options...

Re: Debian use Full screen

Hi All TJF, thanks for the response and apologies for the late reply. (the site going down and me being busy) The window manager is in Lxqt and is XFWM4. I have investigated all possible settings and tweaks. But because I can't do nothing about the cgui header, I have named the headers the same and ...

Re: TP-Link HS110

Hi All Have done a lot of work integrating the smart bulb in the same code. Works very well, I can now turn my lounge room into a disco (well almost) This is using a USA version, so probably have to add functionality once I get home. The Smart Bulb has a lot more info available, and the json strings...

Re: Line Input fail

Hi All I had not come across those commands before in FB, but now I see what the "w" and "r" stand for AND why I could not read the pBuffer. Have tested it on the BBB and it works great and fast. #include "crt/stdio.bi" Function PingDevice(byref IP as String ) as string...

Re: Line Input fail

Hi All @fxm , whilst playing around with what to rem out, I did get that error you described. But remming both statements as noted in the edit above solved the issue. @badidea , trust a Dutchman to think outside of the box. Even though you cancelled the suggestion, I am interested in pursuing it. Th...

Re: Line Input fail

Hi All Thanks for that , however the namespace is not an option. My whole application is based on Allegro & cgui. But, you nailed it. By remming out the line it will compile. I was worried that cgui would fall to pieces, but it hasn't. I guess if I recompile the cgui library, then it may. Have t...

Re: Line Input fail

Hi All

Thanks for the response, same fault.
Allegro.bi actually has the line in it.
#undef line

Also checked cgui.bi and it does not have a line command.
