Re: EASYDAQ Plugin with NET16PRM

Question re the EasyDaq plugin. it includes calls to indigo.server._displayServerProgress(indigo.kProgressDescType.Sent, nameAndLabel, valueStr).

Looks like it is just some sort of progress/logging, but it's blocked by the server as being "for internal use only" (i'm converting the easydaq controller to a pool controller.

can you tell me what it is so I can safely ignore it?

Thx

Hi David,

That is an internal only API so it won't work for your plugin. All it does is queue up a message to be shown (flashed momentarily) on the progress bar of Indigo's client UI (bottom-left of main window). We might some day open up access to that for plugins, but we need to workout the guidelines of when its use is appropriate. You can just remove those lines or comment them out.

Thanks and that's fine. just wanted to make sure it was not doing any magic behind the scenes.
