It’s a brand new UI with way more features and way more capability than any UI for OH that has ever existed. To expect it to be as simple as sitemaps is unreasonable. That’s why BasicUI is still around and will likely remain around. Heck, thats why MainUI even has the ability to create sitemaps.
MainUI is not intended to be a replacement for BasicUI that everyone must migrate to. It’s there if you want to use it. If it’s too hard or complicated to use right now, don’t use it. There is nothing wrong with using BasicUI.
Yes, it should be. In my experience it actually is. So I need from you lot and lots more detail to figure out where it’s going wrong. Have you uncovered a bug? Is there a misunderstanding that can be addressed in the docs? Is there something special about DateTimes? I don’t have the information I need to tell at this point. I don’t even know enough to. try to reproduce what you are seeing on my system.
So yes, it’s more complicated. You must fiddle with some YAML so I can see what you have done. Or you must use BasicUI because I can’t help you.
In MainUI yes, that’s my experience. The State Description is unfortunately use in a lot of different ways so it has influence in a number of other areas. But in MainUI, the State Description is only used in a widget.
Just as you posted it. No square brackets, no quotes.
However, the screenshot of your widget code is cut off exactly where I need to see it. Please post the full YAML in code fences and not screen shots which are hard to work with.
You can find the full syntax Formatter (Java SE 11 & JDK 11 )
To get the month spelled out replace the
%1$tB for the full month name or
%1$tb for the abbreviated month. Your locale’s names for the months are used.
With the information I’ve gathered so far, what you’ve done is not different from what Andrew and Denis have done which is why I need more information. What they’ve described should have worked. It really is that simple and we need more information to understand why it’s not working.
Show your Default Standalone Widget. If you don’t have one, what happens if you create one like what Bob posted?
Look. It should work. It should be that simple. I need that YAML to see what’s going on. Day-to-day you don’t need to ever look at or mess with YAML.
It’s no different than requesting logs and the rules code from someone who is trying to make a rule work. If you don’t want to post some YAML and gather additional information for me so I can help, then please, give up. I can’t help you. No one can. Continue to use BasicUI.
Again, the YAML is for me. I’m the expert on this thread (which is unfortunate since I’m far from an expert on this stuff). I need this information. Nowhere have I ever said that you will have to deal with YAML to make this work. Help me help you!
