"State" field in the Sensor Diagnostic tool RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know it  is not worth asking Qs about the availability of the source code of Sensor Diagnostic Tool , but I want to ask what does the "State" field of the Sensor diagnostic Tool on top right corner represents.

    I have Ready and Not Available option coming on it while i run it on Windos 8.1 PC for a particular sensor.Is this field retrieved from the Input Report or the Feature report of the sensor?

    The reason i asked this is because on keepign the sensor idle I dont get the state of it changed to Ready.But as soon as i give the relevant effect(motion or covernig it in case of ALS) to which it is susceptible i get a "ready" green status there.

    Also from where i can get the meaning of :


    Kindly let me know on this.
