View Full Version : Incorporating variable in network.get script

July 20th, 2016, 06:42 AM
Hi Folks,

Trying to update a property set by a variable [fader] to another app using network.get in Girder (extract of LUA script in girder):
network.get( "[fader]&S=HB4ME", function ( success, status, body )

[fader] is a variable value derived from using "Get Caption". As a variable, [fader] works in Girder 6 OSD, and it displays the new fader value e.g. F2, R4 etc.

The target app (Housebot) receives the message, and displays "[fader]" - not the actual value.

I've spent quite some time looking for a solution without luck. How can I incorporate a variable value in network.get?

Any help very much appreciated!

local url = "" .. fader .. "&S=HB4ME"
network.get(url, function ( success, status, body )

fader is most likely just a lua variable. Hence you concat the strings before use. Check that the output in the lua console is what you expect.
