Thank you guys for your input! I found the problem (strange one) when I realized (unfortunatelly not fast enough) that the only difference between our screenshots is the flow editor type.
I tried all the things listed below… but then thought maybe I should try one more thing: to create a flow on a mobile app… and it worked.
When I created a flow using a Web flow editor it behaves strangely, like described below.
I am using chrome web browser and wanted to check if maybe it is the root cause, but on internet explorer the flow editor does not work at all.
The “direct” URL works good:
But this is still silent: (The chromecast device gives a signal that it received a command.)
I tried it different ways and everything failed:
- on 3 chromecast devices
- setting TestString with a Logic set string card.
- setting TestString manually on Logic setting page.
- restarting Homey
- reinstalling Chromecast app
- using http and https
- creating new flow each time
- at the end I tried to create flow on mobile
BTW. small off-top: I found some difficulties in working on Web flow editor with variables. Especially with calculations.
In the calculation when the variable is added after the string the whole calculation fails.
It also fails, when I want to edit the calculation and repace the variable…
For instance if I want to replace any variable in this calculation I need to create it from scratch, otherwise it will fail with no (empty) result.
second thing is during selecting variables and trying to type anything in search field. The whole window dissapears, which is quite annoying as I need to look for a variable scrolling the whole list.
Have you encountered this kind of web flow editor behaviour?
