[RaspberryPi Tutorial] PiTemplate.lua error

Hi, 

I have an error in the Template.lue script.

Error msg

Any suggestion?

 

Thank you!

Re: [RaspberryPi Tutorial] PiTemplate.lua error

Hi @VladimirRosu ,

 

the error is small but fatal

i found solution (your colleague)

 

Changing this line:

s = string.match(s,"frequency%(45%)=(%d+)");
to:

s = string.match(s,"frequency%(..%)=(%d+)")

Re: [RaspberryPi Tutorial] PiTemplate.lua error

Maybe because there's a ";" just before that line?

I'm no LUA expert, beware.

If you remove that line, do you still see that error?

Re: [RaspberryPi Tutorial] PiTemplate.lua error

Hi @VladimirRosu ,

 

If I delete the entire part of the frequency properties, don't have any error, but that is not the solution I need that parameter.

Maybe the tutorial has not been updated for the new version raspberry pi 4.

 

Anyway Thank you!

Re: [RaspberryPi Tutorial] PiTemplate.lua error

Of course, I didn't suggest deleting the entire part, just the line that causes the issue.

I should explain better: this is my typical debugging practice: I try to isolate the problem first to a service, then to a line of code (that's the part I was suggesting above).

Then in that line I try to write to console the type of variable - given by type(s) in your case, and add the value of that variable just before the specific line. That's what I would do in your case.

 

Note: there is a small link called Need Help ? under the Community (that points to TWX-DevZoneHelp@ptc.com ) at the bottom of that page. Could you maybe also send this issue to that email address?
