Action - Script

The action Script executes a script doing some simple calculations and can be used to modify variables.

Script Description
Reserved Keywords

Following list of keywords are reserved and are therefore not allowed to be used as a variable name:

abstract alias and AND assert boolean break byte case catch char class const continue def default do double else elsif ensure enum extends false final finally float for goto if implements import in instanceof int interface long mod native new next not NOT null or OR package private protected public redo repeat rescue retry return self short static strictfp super switch synchronized then this throw throws to transient true try undef unless until void volatile when while xor XOR yield

Only a few of the reserved keywords are currently used but are reserved for future extensions of the scripting language.

Comments

Scripts can contain comments that are not executed when the script is interpreted.

  • text after // to the end of the line
  • text between /* and */. Such a comment can also span multiple lines.
Examples:
    a=1+2;//this is a comment
    b=a+3;
    c=b+a;
    /* this is a
        multiline comment */
    d=c*2;
Variables

A value like a number or a string can be stored in a variable using the assignment operator =
Variable names are case sensitive. A variable name has to start with a letter, a currency symbol (such as "$") or a connecting punctuation character (such as "_"). The rest of the variable name can also contain digits. Unicode characters are supported, but it is highly recommended to use US-ASCII characters.

Examples:
    a = 3;//assign the number three to the variable a
    b = a;//assign the value stored in variable a to the variable b

There exist two types of variable scopes:

Flow Local
Every variable declared in a script, expression or inline script is by default flow local as long as the name of the variable does not start with global_.

Examples of flow local variables with a value assigned:
  • a = 1;   number one stored in a variable called 'a'
  • var1 = 1.234;   decimal number 1.234 stored in a variable called 'var1'
  • var_123 = "Hello World";   string "Hello World" stored in a variable called 'var_123'
  • _m = true;   boolean value 'true' stored in a variable called '_m'
  • var2 = a;   stores the value stored in variable 'a' in a variable called 'var2'
Global
Every variable that starts with global_ is global and therefore accessible by other flows and will also be persisted to the external memory and reloaded when you stop/restart the Automagic service.

Examples of global variables with a value assigned:
  • global_a = 1;   number one stored in a variable called 'global_a'
  • global_var1 = 1.234;   decimal number 1.234 stored in a variable called 'global_var1'
  • global_var_123 = "Hello World";   string "Hello World" stored in a variable called 'global_var_123'
  • global_m = true;   boolean value 'true' stored in a variable called 'global_m'

Variables are references to values (like a pointer). Assigning the value stored in a variable to another variable does not copy the value but both variables point to the exact same value.
This is especially important when modifiable values like lists are used.
Example:

    a = newList(1, 2, 3);
    b = a;
    //at this point both variables a and b point to the exact
    // same list (the list only exists once)
    addElement(a, 4);
    //the list now contains 1, 2, 3, 4
    //both variables a and b still point to the same list

    //both loops therefore print the values 1, 2, 3 and 4 in the log:
    for (x in a)
    {
        log("{x}");
    }

    for (x in b)
    {
        log("{x}");
    }

Operators

Following operators are supported in expressions:

  • +    addition and string concatenation
  • -    subtraction
  • *    multiplication
  • /    division
  • %    modulo division
  • <    less than
  • <=    less than or equal
  • >    greater than
  • >=    greater than or equal
  • ==    equal
  • !=    not equal
  • AND, &&    and
  • OR, ||    or
  • XOR, ^    exclusive or
  • NOT, !    not (unary)
Expressions

An expression is a construct made up of variables, operators and function calls, that evaluates to a single value.

Examples:
  • 42
  • 1+2
  • a=1
  • b=a+1
  • c=(a+1)*(b-3)
  • global_a=1
  • a=sqrt(9)
  • b=addDays(triggertime, 3)
  • c=replace("hello automagic", "automagic", "world")
  • b=addDays(triggertime, sqrt(9))
  • b="Hello " + "World"
  • a=true
  • b=false
  • c=a AND b OR c>=5
  • c=NOT a AND NOT b
String Inline Expressions

Inline expressions in strings can be used to replace a part of the string by a variable or expression. The rules described here also apply to the text fields of triggers, conditions and actions documented in the help page with Variables are supported.
An inline expression is enclosed in curly braces: {expression}

Example simple inline expressions:
  • var1="Test";
    var2="This is a {var1}";

    'var2' will contain the string "This is a Test" after the script is evaluated
  • var="one plus two is {1 + 2}";
    'var' is evaluated to "one plus two is 3"

Inline expressions can be formatted by defining a format type and depending on the format type a pattern to use: {var,formattype,pattern}

Example inline expressions with formatting:
  • var="Today is {getDate(),dateformat,dd.MM.yyyy}";
    'var' will contain the string "Today is 21.07.2012"
  • var="It's {getDate(),dateformat,HH:mm}";
    'var' will contain the string "It's 12:32"
  • var="It's {getDate(),dateformat,timezone,UTC,HH:mm}";
    'var' will contain the string "It's 10:32"
  • var="Value: {1.456789,numberformat,0.00}";
    'var' is evaluated to "Value: 1.46"
  • var="I'm here: {location,locationformat,decimal}";
    'var' is evaluated to "I'm here: 46.76817,7.603751"
  • var="{files,listformat,comma}";
    'var' is evaluated to "/mnt/sdcard/file1,/mnt/sdcard/file2"
Supported format types:
  • dateformat: Formats the date using the specified date pattern. See pattern characters for a description of the supported patterns.
    The optional sub-format timezone along with the name of the timezone can be used to define the timezone used to format the date/time. Accepted timezone names are either UTC, GMT or the Olson name of a timezone name of the form Area/Location, such as America/Los_Angeles (device dependent). GMT is used for unknown timezone names.
    Examples:
    • {triggertime,dateformat,timezone,UTC,HH:mm}
    • {triggertime,dateformat,timezone,America/Los_Angeles,HH:mm}
    • {triggertime,dateformat,timezone,Europe/London,HH:mm}
    • {triggertime,dateformat,timezone,Europe/Paris,HH:mm}
    • {triggertime,dateformat,timezone,Africa/Harare,HH:mm}
  • numberformat: Formats the number using the specified decimal format. See pattern characters for a description of the supported patterns.
  • locationformat: Formats the address of the location when available in a single line of text when no format is specified. (Data connection is required)
    Following locationformat patterns are supported:
    • multiline: Formats the address as a multiline text. (Data connection is required)
    • decimal: Formats latitude,longitude as decimal numbers (+/-DDD.DDDDD). Example: 46.76817,7.603751.
    • microdegrees: Formats latitude,longitude multiplied by 1'000'000 as integers. Example: 46768355,7604022. This format can be useful in a call to a REST service.
    • swiss: Formats latitude,longitude converted to the Swiss coordinate system.
  • listformat: Formats the list of values as a multiline text with one item per line when no pattern is specified.
    Following listformat patterns are supported:
    • comma: Formats the list of values as a comma separated list.
    • semicolon: Formats the list of values as a semicolon separated list.
  • jsonformat: Formats the value as JSON fragment.

Inline expressions in strings with single quotes are not interpreted. This can be helpful for regular expressions, where a quantifier like {2} in the pattern ([0-9]){2}.* should not be replaced with 2.

Example:
  • var='Today is {getDate(),dateformat,dd.MM.yyyy}';
    'var' is evaluated to 'Today is {getDate(),dateformat,dd.MM.yyyy}'
Control Structures
if Statement
An if statement can be used to evaluate a block of code when a condition is true.
Example:
    if (a<3)
    {
        b = 0;
    }
    else
    {
        b = 1;
    }
In this example variable b is assigned the value zero when the variable a contains a value less than 3, b is assigned the value one when the variable a contains a value greater or equal to 3.
for Loop
A for loop evaluates a block of code for every value in a list of values.
Example:
    list=newList(1, 2, 3);

    for (a in list)
    {
        log("a contains {a}");
    }
This example would print the following output in the log:
    a contains 1
    a contains 2
    a contains 3
Numeric List Creation Expression
Since it is very common to create a list containing a sequence of numeric values there is a shorthand to create such a list using [<number> to <number>, <step size>]:
Examples:
    list = [1 to 10];//without the optional step size

    for (a in list)
    {
        log(a);
    }
    //logs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

    //inlined
    for (a in [1 to 10])
    {
        log(a);
    }
    //logs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

    //inlined with step size of 2
    for (a in [1 to 10, 2])
    {
        log(a);
    }
    //logs 1, 3, 5, 7, 9

    //inlined with negative step size of -3
    for (a in [10 to 1, -3])
    {
        log(a);
    }
    //logs 10, 7, 4, 1

Access to list and map entries
Single values of lists and maps can be accessed with brackets.
Examples:
    list = [1 to 10];
    a = list[0];//get first element of the list: 1
    a = list[1];//get second element of the list: 2

    list[2] = 999;//assigns 999 to the third element of the list

    map = newMap();
    map["key1"] = 1;//creates a map entry key1-->1
    map["key2"] = 2;//creates a map entry key2-->2

    a = map["key1"];//gets the value of entry with key1: 1
    a = map["key2"];//gets the value of entry with key2: 2
while Loop
A while-loop evaluates a block of code as long as a condition is true.
Example:
    a = 0;

    while (a < 10)
    {
        log(a);
        a = a + 1;
    }
    //logs 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
return statement
The return statement can be used to terminate a script early and optionally to return a given value.
Example:
    a = null;
    if (a == null)
    {
        return;
    }

    log("X");//not reached since return terminates the script
break statement
The break statement can be used to terminate a loop and to continue the script after the loop body.
Example:
    for (a in [1 to 10])
    {
        if (a == 4)
        {
            break;
        }
        log(a);
    }

    log("X");
    //logs 1, 2, 3, X
continue statement
The continue statement can be used to immediately continue with the next iteration of the loop.
Example:
    for (a in [1 to 10])
    {
        if (a == 4)
        {
            continue;
        }
        log(a);
    }

    log("X");
    //logs 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, X
Functions
Built in functions can be called to calculate trigonometric values, create lists, extract values from an XML and much more.
Examples:
    a = sin(1.2);//evaluates to 0.932039...
    a = max(1, 2, 3, 4, 5);//evaluates to 5
    a = isEmpty([1 to 10]);//evaluates to false
    a = containsElement([1 to 10, 2], 3);//evaluates to true

Every executable expression in a script evaluates to a value. A block of code evaluates to the value produced by the last expression in the block and allows to create inline scripts with multiple expressions:
    s = "{a=1;b=2}";
    log(s);//logs 2

    a = true;
    b = if (a) 1 else 2;
    log(b);//logs 1

    for (a in [0 to 10])
    {
        log(if(a<5) "X" else "-");
    }
    //logs X, X, X, X, X, -, -, -, -, -, -

    b=0;
    log(for(a in [1 to 10]) {b=b+a});
    //logs 55
