MAJOR REWRITE!

CHANGELOG:
Feb13: Revamped install code. now uses one installer file that is unlikely to change. will make it easier for me to push an update to you guys


If you downloaded this before February 14. i recommend you redownload using the links on this page. it involves a critical update. without it the program may not function



I made a small computer program for advanced computers that tells you your power levels for energy cells(TE3), mfe,mfsu,batbox(ic2), enderIO capacitor banks and mekanism energy cubes.

-note: currently only works with single EnderIO capacitors . doesnt work with the EnderIO multiblock

Posted Image

the program could work with any block that stores energy

To use the code just type: pastebin get 9b6m3ym1 install.lua in the terminal. note: must be advanced computer and advanced monitors!

then just run install.lua in the console. the installer will run and download the program for you

[Lua] Power Monitor Installer V:20 - Pastebin.com

[Lua] Power Monitor setup V:15 - Pastebin.com (note: you dont need to pastebin get this one. it is done automatically with the installation program)

[Lua] Power Monitor Program V:15 - Pastebin.com (note: you dont need to pastebin get this one. it is done automatically with the installation program)


Pictures Of Terminal
Spoiler

this is a basic setup.
Spoiler
Here is the Code (for those to lazy to click the pastebin link
Spoiler

More Info

using side name such as "top" and "back" in the name input doesn't currently works perfectly. DO NOT USE THE QUOTES!

make sure to use the name that shows up in chat box when you connect the coble modem. otherwise you may run into an issue on line 53.

Feel free to ask questions of needed. or just leave any suggestions for the code. :)/>

EDIT: Fixed Images
EDIT 2: Added more documentation
EDIT 13: applied major update
EDIT 15: Added full color support

I like it!

It's a small amount of code to get a simple job done.

IT's not too flexible, but it works for what it is supposed to work for.

// offtopic: what texture pack is that

Texture pack is Soartex Fanver w/ all mod textures available

any recommendations for added flexibility? besides different screen sizes(been looking into it)
possibly customizable colors? would put that config into an option advanced setup

I have an idea. I wrote for MobGui (little shell of mine) a program called Energy. I basicly read all peripherals of thy mfsu and put enegry amount on the terminal glasses from open peripherals. I made it so you can save an alias for a storage device.
Heres the program : https://ccmob.net/packages/energy.msx

Btw, i made a little gui api. Maybe it can help by way of creating simple and shorter code.

PS: MobGui is found here if you are interested : https://ccmob.net/

Looks neat!

Just wanted to tell you, that you can clear an complete line with mon.clearLine() (It clears the line the Cursor is on). If you want to make the complete screen white just use:
mon.setBackgroundColor(colors.white)
mon.clear()
Clearing a line or the whole monitor is the same as overwriting it with blank spaces. That means the background will also change to the current background color.

And for your Loading Bar Code I would suggest an for-loop (http://lua.lickert.n...p/index_en.html):
 for i = 8, 9 do --# For each loop it counts 1 up until it hits nine and then breaks. For the first run i = 8, for the second run i = 9
   mon.setCursorPos(2,i)
   mon.setBackgroundColour(colors.gray)
   mon.write(string.rep(" ",34))
   mon.setCursorPos(2,i)
   mon.setBackgroundColour(colors.lime)
   mon.write(string.rep(" ",bar))
end 

I would also suggest using the sleep-funtion in your infinite loop, to reduce lag:
 while true do
   --#Code and stuff
   sleep(1) --#Will pause the program for 1 second
end 

I hope that i helped you a little bit.

Any idea how I can fix it

Hi

Thanks :)/> the fixation that part, when I finally found out what the name of the monitor was ...

But ... now I get
"power: 88: attempt to index? (a nill value)"

And yes, i have, (in my case a BatBox), on top of the computer as the code says
maxE = cube.getMaxEnergyStored("top")

same issue again, this time with the energy storage device

Hi

I guessed it was the same mistake, but I wrote BatBox since that's what I use .... see photos ...
it's another name I should use or...

-screen shots snip-


the name like thing is for wired connections only, in your case, the "name" should be "top" without " "

To the OP, this is something you may want to clarify in documentation or something

Hmmmm

Tried to use "top" (without " ") but got this error message:
 power:88: attempt to call nil 

Just thought I'd mention it ... not the same error message as before ;-)

-I was a screen shot, then I got snipped-


this script may not be compatible with IC2 batboxes, the OP screen shot is some other energy storing thing
just re read the OP, must be open peripherals or somewhere in the setup you need to tell it the storage device

if you don't have open peripherals, then install that and try again, otherwise find another script/edit this one

As far as I can see the code "out of the box" and if u use the proper "top", "back", "left", "right" as name,
works only with Thermal Expansion ... because I tried with a Leadstone Energy Cell (TE) and then it worked just fine....

The OP may not have tested their program against IC2 energy storage.

This looks like a great program, but I cannot get it to function. I get this error:
Posted Image

The line of code it is referencing is :
percent = math.floor((rawPer*100)+0.5)

I have the computer sittin on top of an EnderIO capacitor bank (Two capacitors).

Is this an outdated command?
Computercraft 1.73
openperipheral 1.7.10-AIO-4

Thanks for any suggestions =)

edit: I removed one of the enderio capacitors, so it is a single capacitor only and I get the same error.

I know this post is from almost two years ago, but I would like to request for someone to help me.
I'm attempting to make a power monitor for a mod called Zetta Industries only problem I'm having is, your program is not compatible.
I like the interface you've created here, I would just like to have compatibility for Zetta's batteries.
They are multiblocks, and have a computer access port just like Big Reactors.

Thanks

what version of mekanism are you using?

this program was written with 1.7.10 mods in use


mekanism may have changed the way computer craft calls its current energy stored

I'll see what I can do to push a fix


if you want to do it yourself. you can find out what function is used to get the current energy stored in a mekanism cube

read through the code. on my pastebin it is labeled as power monitor program v:20
you can find the function that detects which mods battery you are using
add in the correct functions for detecting Zetta industries

if you don't know how to do this,
I'm gonna parse through my code and see if I can fix a couple things this weekend (Feb 18th, 2017)
