    Did I mention that I'd really like a variable conditional/lua conditional that works flawlessly with G5? Oh yeah... I did -- like 20 times. :P

    Well, no-one is stopping you from writing one

    Seriously, remind me what the problems are with the current user-supplied one.

    My lack of ability is stopping me, unfortunately
    I will post the errors that I get in the console once I'm at my home computer. I'm sure you would instantly see what the problem is if you were to install it.

    I still can't understand how this is not a feature that is built-in to Girder seeing as how useful it is and how much script-writing it saves.

    I'm not very keen on scripted conditionals - if you're not very careful about where you place them they can slow Girder down to a crawl.

    Good to know, but they must be about the same as running scripts all the time to determine whether or not a macro should run and then triggering it with a girder action?
    I've been having issues with my Insteon KPL button LEDs, so I run a macro every ten minutes that turns them on or off depending on certain conditions, and it seems to work fairly well.

    I think I'm still correct in saying that a conditional attached to an entire GML will be fired for every incoming event, before the normal event handlers for that event are called

    OK, thanks. So you would avoid attaching them to macros as well? There are certain ones that I have that I would like to fire only if certain conditions apply, and others when those conditions are not met. Are you suggesting that I just bite the bullet and write scripts for everything?

    My recommendation would be to be sparing with them. I'm trying to remember what my findings were now. You may be able to minimise the calls to the conditional by having a macro with an event attached which in turn contains another macro with the condtional.
