tenHsGadget is a Vista Sidebar Gadget that interacts with a remote Homeseer server
to display information about Homeseer Devices and provides a means for a user to
run Homeseer Events.
Sidebar Gadgets run as separate programs within the Vista Sidebar. They normally
are docked within the Sidebar, and as such, provide a limited display area.
A primary design criteria for this Gadget is to provide as much flexibility as possible
in defining which devices are to be displayed in the limited space, and how the
Device Display is to be formatted.
There are two selectable displays: the Device List and the
Event List. The Device List displays a list
of Devices that are being monitored. You specify which Homeseer Devices you
want to monitor using the Options panel. You also specify the criteria (based
upon either the Device's Status or Value) to use in determining if and how the
Device is displayed in the list. If you click on a Device in the list, a flyout panel opens up that allows you to control
the Device (ON/OFF/DIM etc.).
The Event List
displays a list of Homeseer Events. You specify which Homeseer Events you
want displayed in the list from the Options panel. If you click on an Event
in the list, that Event will be run on the Homeseer server.
You can easily switch between the Device List and the Event
List by clicking on the
icon to display the Device List or the
icon to display the Event List. If the list of Devices or
Events is longer than the display area, click the
icons to page the display. You can also click on the
icon to display the Status screen from your Homeseer server in a separate browser
