Re: Edit Control Page - image filename sorting not working

I did quit the client app, but it didn’t make any difference. I didn’t want to restart the server because it was not a good time to do that. I will try that today, however.

Re: Edit Control Page - image filename sorting not working

Hi,

I am having the same issue. A restart of the server and client does not solve this.

- Running macOS Version 10.13.3
- APFS volume case-insensitive
- IndigoDomo Version 7.1.1.
- 567 devices images
- 132 static images
- 44 variable images
- No 3rd party UI enhancers
- can not figure out what the sort order could be


Regards,
Wouter

Re: Edit Control Page - image filename sorting not working

Wouter,

Are you referring to Indigo Touch (iOS app)? If so, there is a button on the settings (gear icon) panel for clearing the cache.


Update: Ignore my post above. I had my wires crossed with another forum thread. :mrgreen:

That's not what I was referring to. The proper image appears on Indigo Touch. The issue is with the server. The old image appears in the control page designer regardless of the fact that the old image was deleted from the image folder.

Yeah, I think the Indigo Server restart will get it updated for you. We obviously need to make Indigo's caching algorithm more intelligent.

A restart of the server does nog solve the sorting issue.

Re: Edit Control Page - image filename sorting not working

Any thoughts on this? I was making some edits since I got a new iPad and was creating a Retina-resolution page and the random order of the files made it such a pain I just gave up on the new pages and I'm still using previously designed pages I have.

I've rebooted the server many times and it doesn't solve anything. When adding new images in they appear randomly in the list. I can't find any pattern as to how/why they appear where they do.

Thanks
Ross

Hi Ross,

Yes, the sorting problem will be fixed in an upcoming release.

Re: Edit Control Page - image filename sorting not working

How do users who didn't move to the subscription versions get it?

I mean, this is just a bug fix--right? Not a new feature. And, Control Pages is among if not the main reasons why you'd get Indigo Pro vs the lower device count one. So it's not nothing. Are there at least instructions* to fix it ourselves published somewhere?

*: with tools, e.g; the same IDE, compiler, and not leaving huge gaps to sort out.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
// SIDENOTE FOR OTHERS WITH THE SAME ISSUE // As a temporary workaround, get Home Assistant the VM version, add the MQTT addon, get the Home Assistant plugin or one that does MQTT and link Indigo to HA, you don't have to use HA, you'll keep Indigo but use HA's already done modular UI "Lovelace" I believe, for control. If you get creative you can send back location to Indigo too... or add (also via MQTT) OpenHAB to the mix.

Home Assistant (the controller) is a different entity than Home Assistant OS, running under it on the VM, also different entities are "Mosquito" — (one of) its MQTT server(s) — and "Supervisor" which handles installation tasks and upkeep of all of these self-contained servers including itself. It can get confusing real fast, the good news is that HA (the controller) is preconfd for Mosquitto when you add it to it, you only have to assemble the pieces on Indigo's side.

If all of this is still too much, there's always the HomeKit protocol, which is direct communications among controllers and controllers and devices. Don't expect to be as deeply integrated or even compatible with Apple devices though but it should be enough and easier than attempting to design Control Pages where you have to sort through endless items out of order re-shuffled when you add more items to the list.

I'll bet you think this post is about you. Don't you. ♪

Re: Edit Control Page - image filename sorting not working

The only way to get this bug fix is by upgrading to Indigo 7.2 or newer. We stopped supporting Indigo 7.2 at the end of 2020. (note this thread is almost 4 years old), and even if we still provided support for it that would only be for critical bugs (which this is not).
