I have a project that needs to check the state of the contact closures on bootup to decide what actions need to happen immediately. Right now it looks like after bootup the first state change activates a poll of contact conditions. Is it possible to poll for state right away? Example, I want to check to see if a piece of equipment in present. The equipment is sending a normally closed signal. When my cueserver starts up it needs to know if that signal is there. Right now I have to unplug the connection to acknowledge state.
That is a feature that was originally built into CueServer. It would look at the state of contact closures after startup and execute appropriate actions for closed contacts.
I confirmed that it doesn't work in the current version of firmware (1.5.5). This is a bug that we will address. When do you need it, at the latest?

Here is an update: We have fixed the issue that was preventing the closed contact closure actions from firing after start up. The fix is a part of the latest 2.0 beta version, which you can download here: http://interactive-online.com/cs2/. You need the 2.0.0d6 version, and you need to update the firmware as well after you download and run the software.
Keep in mind that this feature only works on the built in contact closures, not on the external contacts that are located on the ST-DIO expansion modules.
Hope this helps.
