    Query Thing by Name

    Trying to create a service query a Thing by name and check if it exists or not, but it seems I am having trouble with the Syntax. I looked at the Wike and tried to use the syntax there, but still get empty results.


    Anybody knows an easy way to do it?


    thanks

        Hi Ewerton,

         

        If you want to see if a Thing exists, you can do:


        if (Things[thingName]) {

         // It Exists

        } else {

          // It Doesn't

        }


        If the Thing does not exist, Things[thingName] will be null, which evaluates to false in a conditional.
