Custom name, define variable?

Hello

I tried to make my first openhab Widget, just to learn somethings :slight_smile:

My yam is below, and for testing i have create default values.

My items are:

Number    shellyLoftMotionBattery    "Bewegingssensor zolder"    <material:battery_std>    (groupBattery)    {channel="shelly:shellymotion:loft:battery#batteryLevel"}
Number    shellyHallMotionBattery    "Bewegingssensor hal"       <material:battery_std>    (groupBattery)    {channel="shelly:shellymotion:hall:battery#batteryLevel"}

DateTime    shellyHallMotion          "[%1$td-%1$tm-%1$tY %1$tT]"    <material:sensors>    (groupMotionSensors)    {channel="shelly:shellymotion:hall:sensors#motionTimestamp"}
DateTime    shellyLoftMotion          "[%1$td-%1$tm-%1$tY %1$tT]"    <material:sensors>    (groupMotionSensors)    {channel="shelly:shellymotion:loft:sensors#motionTimestamp"}

                                                  height: 25

I have two questions:

  1. text: =loop.item.name #how to get Customname…

Is there an option to create a property on a item (not that i know) en show here a custom name?
Now i have the format of the date, for displayState

  1. (Number.parseFloat(items[loop.item.name + “Battery”].state)

I use that expression a lot, can i set that into a var, for more readable code and easier to use?

More tips and tricks are welcome… shoot ,

Thx

btw this is the output now:

You can access the label of the item using loop.item.label, but if you want something truly customized, then you will have to set some custom metadata for the item and use the fetchMetadata repeater property to get access to that custom namespace.

No. Variable assignment is not available in the widget expressions. Also, each widget expression is evaluated in its own context, so the variables wouldn’t be shared anyway. Sometimes you just get really long and ugly expressions. Here’s one of my worst:

=(Number.isNaN(Number((@@(props.item + props.target)).split(' ')[0])))?(0):(52.5 + -44.5 * Math.sin((90 + Math.sign(Number((@@(props.item + props.target)).split(' ')[0]) - Number((@@(props.item + props.temp)).split(' ')[0])) * 9 - ((Number((@@(props.item + props.temp)).split(' ')[0]) - 70) * 7)) / 180 * Math.PI))

Thanx, i have the solution for me…

text: ‘=(loop.item.hasOwnProperty(“metadata”) && loop.item.metadata.hasOwnProperty(“widget”)) ? loop.item.metadata.widget.config.title : loop.item.name’

with the property

fetchMetadata: widget
