Schedule:Constant in OpenStudio - create, inspect?

asked 2015-09-17 03:46:33 -0500

Can you create Schedule:Constant objects in OS app?

Is there anywhere you can inspect the value of a Schedule:Constant in OpenStudio?

If using a measure, is it a good idea to use Schedule:Constant rather than a Ruleset if people can't see it?

No, there is nowhere in the OS app to create or inspect a Schedule:Constant. I typically avoid using them in Measures since people can't look at them to double-check their work.

This constructor for ScheduleRuleset is just as easy to use as ScheduleConstant, the resulting schedule can be inspected and edited:

/** Constructs a new ScheduleRuleset, constructs a new ScheduleDay with value at all times and assigns it to be the defaultDaySchedule(). */
ScheduleRuleset(const Model& model, double value);
