Actions on Feedbacks:To use a variable on the left or right hand side of the conditional you must click the cog and enter a variable. Typing the variable into the text box ( even surrounded by "$"'s ) will not work as expected. Also note, that all feedbacks using actions need to be added to the page the action is affecting. You can make the text clear which will prevent the feedback being seen on the interface, but within the builder the feedback needs to be listed on the page.
Previously, repeating entrances were required to send commands based on Feedbacks or to update state-changes in the system. Now, using an Action on a feedback eliminates the need for some of those Entrances.
If you double click on the Feedback that you have added to your page you will now see a Macro view of that feedback: (Referenced Below)
Assigning Actions to Feedback:
There are 3 layers to assign variables to your feedbacks:
Top Level (Title Level)- This allows you to set fewer variables on your different feedbacks. If anything changes with any of the separate feedbacks you can reference the variable you have set on the Top Level.Example: You have a contact closure device and you want to know when any relay has been changed. Set your variable on the Top level (title level) to monitor each of the three relays.
- Set your conditional to monitor your variable IF $relay$ = ON these perform these commands. This will monitor all relays inside the closer and whenever a relay is opened you will be notified via change of image or have a message appear on the screen.
Code Level (Second Level) - Base your Conditional on a specific feedback from your system. Power, Volume or Source for example.
- Example: You are monitoring the power state of your receiver. When the Power state changes from POWER ON to POWER OFF, or vice versa, the feedback can update images or send a different command.
Value Level (Third Level) - Base your feedback on the exact value you are looking for. Volume level or Temperature or example.
- Example: You are monitoring the volume level of your receiver. When the volume hits a specific level 25db, 50db or so on, you can identify the sound parameter via image or adjust the command being sent.
