Purpose

This function returns the device reference for a device.  The device reference is different than an index to a device.  The device reference is only needed for other procedures which explicitly require the device reference.


Parameters

Parameter: sAddress
Type: string
Description: This is the actual device code, such as "12345-A1", or "IOPOINT1"


Returns

Return value: reference
Type: Integer
Description: This is a numerical device reference. 


Example

Sample Code
None


This will only return the reference to the first device matching the address provided. The address is the "Address" property of a device, not the code property. The Address is normally set by a plugin and can be used to find a device.
