Trying to get Parent ID in Ruby
« on: January 15, 2008, 04:47:04 pm »
I can't seem to get the parent device from ANY object in ruby.
device_.parent_ returns nil

device_.childdevices_[cmd.devidto_].parent_ SHOULD  report the device_.devid_
It's reporting nil

Is this not correct?

Thanks,

Dan

another piece of tidbit:
parent_.inspect kills the device...
