Hot tip: test inside Indigo!

Had a script that worked perfectly in Script Editor, even talked properly to Indigo, setting a variable as it was supposed to based on a condition.

When embedded or run from inside Indigo, the functionality broke.

Scratched my head about that for a while, and realized that some Applescript variable state or some such was somehow being preserved when run inside Indigo. NOT an Indigo variable--the script never reads any of those.

No explanation, but I had to move a few variables other places in the script to get it to work when run from inside Indigo.

SmartThings refugee, so happy to be on Indigo. 10.13.6 on an i5 MBP w/Harmony Hub, Hue, DomoPad, Dynamic URL, Device Extensions, HomeKit Bridge, MatplotLib, Plex, uniFAP, Wunderground, Nanoleaf, LED Simple Effects, Airfoil Pro, Grafana.

Re: Hot tip: test inside Indigo!

If you specify something as a property in AppleScript, then it's supposed to be persistent so if you change it it will persist to the next run. Perhaps thats what you're seeing.
