get all implemented things with a certain property in a service

Hello,

i have thing template with a property of type THINGNAME.

i'm writing a service and in there i need to get a list of all thing that implement that template and have a certain thingname as that property.

How can i do that?

I assume can somehow call the getImplementedThings service and compare the property each element. If that is the easiest solution, how do i call that service?

If you want just get the name of the things is easier than you think, but I don't know if is that what you want.

What do you want to do with this thingname property?

i need to read properties of those things

Re: get all implemented things with a certain property in a service

The service GetImplementingThingsWithData() doesn't suit you?  You will iterate all the things and properties.

You can call the service on the template:

ThingTemplates["BlaTemplate"].GetImplementingThings();

// loop each element

But if I understand your problem correctly the only thing you need is:

result = me.PropertyWithThingname;

You don't need to iterate through every element if you have the thingname.
