[SOLVED] Http binding, send string?

I`d like to send a message to my dreambox. to do so I send an url which works fine:

var String REMmsg = "!!&type=1&timeout=100"

I want to reuse the String in another rule so I update a string item with:


in that other rule I do:


but this throws a ton of errormessages including this one:

Caused by: java.net.URISyntaxException: Illegal character in scheme name at index 6: enigma_REMmsg (Type=StringItem, State=!!&type=1&timeout=100, Label=null, Category=null)

can someone tell what I do wrong? thanks…

Since enigma_REMmsg is an item, you need to get its state…


Another option is to use a global variable, as long as the rules are in the same file.

…so easy, thanks for pointing me to that option! :slight_smile:
