Help with filtering payload

I'm using node-red-contrib-sun-position to control my roller blinders. I need to pass blinder position to the node if I use the manual commands. To do this, I'm using this example flow to:

1- get current position but only the number.
2- block repeated messages so that it doesn't reset blinder node
3- pass it to blinder control node

It works but, is there a simpler or more correct(beautiful) way of doing it?

I can't copy the code.

Usually when that kind of code is posted (grey box area) there is a copy to clipboard icon in the top right corner.

I'm not seeing it.

(but just now I am having network problems, so it could be at my end)

Sorry. Try now.

Better.

I'm a bit busy just now.

I just wanted to mention that no one could copy the code.

Thank you for the warning. I'm not in a hurry, everything is working. Just trying to improve.

Well - assuming that data.attributes.current_positionis part of the msg, you don't need to use jsonata in the change node. Change the from using jsaoata to grab it from the msg object:

Other than that, a two node flow is very good!

Well, thank you then! I'm happy with the solution, also. Just remembered to ask because I like to optimize things and maybe there was a better way to do it.
