Purge Delayed Macro Event Command
« on: June 26, 2011, 01:16:01 PM »

It would be very useful to be able to embed, in a Smart Macro, a command to "Purge Delayed Macro Events" such as is available from the "Tools" menu in AHP . A typical use might be as follows. A bathroom or hallway light is triggered by a motion sensor to come on for just a few minutes. Before those few minutes pass, you decide to shower or look for something in the hallway closet, and don't want the light to turn off as a result of the already-running delayed macro. The ability to embed the "Purge" command in a "Shower On" macro would prevent the light from going out prematurely.  I am sure this could be easily encoded and included among the available macro commands in future releases of AHP.

I'm wondering if you could use AutoHotKey to do this with some fancy macro writing.

If there were a way for the SDK to do this, then you could theoretically use a macro to run the SDK command (a bit rube goldberg-ish, but would work). I wonder if that's something that could be added to the SDK. (I'll have to pose that to the developers).
