[ANSWERED]: indigoplugin InsteonCommands Failing

Attempting to send Insteon commands to keypad (or other Insteon devices) via the GUI.
Server fails to execute and returns the following errors.

Error (client) getConfigUiValuesFromPlugin2() caught exception: PacketTargetNotConnectedError -- client target com.perceptiveautomation.indigoplugin.InsteonCommands not found for message UiGetValues2
Error (client) getXmlFromPlugin() caught exception: PacketTargetNotConnectedError -- client target com.perceptiveautomation.indigoplugin.InsteonCommands not found for message CallPluginFunc
Error (client) dialogForActionId() caught exception: NSInvalidArgumentException -- *** -[__NSPlaceholderDictionary initWithObjects:forKeys:count:]: attempt to insert nil object from objects[0]

Choose the Indigo 6->Stop Server menu item, then restart the Indigo Server. If the problem persists, or occurs again, then let us know.

That worked. I'll try to remember that for next time.
Although, I thought a quit to Indigo and restart was kind of the same thing.
No matter, I'm happy.

Thanks Matt.

Quitting Indigo just stops the Indigo GUI client. Depending on the options you have in the Start Local Server dialog, the Indigo Server can keep on running in the background.

Re: [ANSWERED]: indigoplugin InsteonCommands Failing

Hi, I got a similar error when trying to execute, create or modify action groups with a toggle variable action in them. I shut down and restarted the server as suggested, and now it is working again.

I am curious, though: What creates this problem? Is there some way to prevent it from happening or get an alert if the toggle variable actions stop working? I have quite a few things depending on variable actions in my setup.

Here is the error I got:

Error (client) getConfigUiValuesFromPlugin2() caught exception: PacketTargetNotConnectedError -- plugin Action Collection is not enabled
Error (client) getXmlFromPlugin() caught exception: PacketTargetNotConnectedError -- plugin Action Collection is not enabled
Error (client) dialogForActionId() caught exception: NSInvalidArgumentException -- *** -[__NSPlaceholderDictionary initWithObjects:forKeys:count:]: attempt to insert nil object from objects[0]

It shouldn't ever happen. That's why we ask if the problem persists to let us know.
