Add the ability to sort / re-arrange devices
« on: January 21, 2018, 10:00:50 AM »

Right now, the X10wifi app doesn't allow you to sort or re-arrange devices in the list. It would be really helpful for those whose setup changes over time, and would like to put their devices in a different order.

I can be/get a little OCD myself. I think many of us like order and/or organization.

Yes, this is a very good idea. Since the typical screen can only display five or six devices with out scrolling, by being able to reorder, you can move your most frequently used lights/appliances to the top of the stack.

I don't have many HA apps on my Phone  However the SmartThings app is very simular to the X10WIFI app.
On first looking at it I thought even they don't have a way to rearrange devices.
However after playing it does have the option for device, rooms and scenes.  -:) Maybe the developer can use the SmartThings app as a guide in how to implement this.

Ability to Rearrange Devices
« Reply #4 on: February 13, 2018, 02:31:20 PM »

I initially added my devices G1 - G16, skipping the unassigned ones of course.  I added a new G11 which now shows up t the bottom of the rest.  Wish I could drag and drop to reorder them.

Drag and drop would be great. (And probably not hard to implement, since so many apps do it.) In the meantime, I just re-name and re-assign devices in the list as needed. Fiddly, and really annoying if I have to push down a long list, but it works.
