Select Device Description: unique id for description

Post by piet66 »

A little nuisance at selecting device description: for some devices there exist several descriptions with same or similar name and different contents. In such cases it's difficult to find the right one. You must look through all descriptions and it's not clear which you have already checked and which not.
And for the next device of the same type you have the same difficulty again, because you can't remember, which was the right one.
Best solution would be to add the version number. But I don't know whether it's possible.

Proposal: add a unique id to the description names (running number or checksum). Then you can see. what you already have checked and discarded and you can remember this entry for other devices.

You can do those files yourself, but in fact they don't affect anything but Config parameters description and a nice picture in expert ui
