Device DeviceCollection.AddDevice( String in_bstrDeviceName );

Scripting Syntax

oReturn = DeviceCollection.AddDevice( DeviceName );

Return Value



Parameter Type Description
DeviceName String The name of the device to add.


JScript Example

	This example demonstrates how to work with devices through scripting.
NewScene( null, false );
// First make sure the device manager is active (we can't add devices if it isn't)
if (!Application.Devices.Enable) {
	Application.Devices.Enable = true;
// Get the DeviceManager (DeviceCollection)
var oDevices = Application.Devices;
// Get a pointer to the PC1600 Device, if it exists
var oDevice = oDevices.Item("PC1600");
// If it doesn't exist, then create it
if (oDevice == null) {
	oDevice = oDevices.AddDevice( "PC1600" );
LogMessage( "The device name is " + oDevice );
//INFO : The device name is DeviceManager.PC1600
