I have defined an item group “m_Maint” containing various items (RSSI, battery voltage, error states). Inside the sitemap I have defined: Group item=m_Maint label="Geräte: Wartungs- und interne Daten" icon="key" valuecolor=[>1.5="green", >0.0="red", >-66.0="green", >-71.0="orange", <=-71.0="red"]
But all values are always displayed with the default color (blue). As soon, as I put a single item of this group into a single definition inside the sitemap i.e. Text item=... valuecolor=[...], then the valuecolor works as expected and the value is rendered according to the colors defined.
So the question ist: Do “Group”-definition inside a sitemap actually work with “valuecolor”? If yes: how do they work?
Well, this is not what I wanted. I just wanted to use the Group widget just as an “easy way” to render all the items without changing the sitemap when adding just another item to the item definitions.
It is a kind of maintenance page, which is used to display RSSI-values, battery-voltages, error strings all together. And I wanted to “beef up” the display, i.e. battery voltages above 1.5 as “green” and lower values as “red”. Similar for the RSSI values and since all the values are very different, a single valuecolor would be sufficient for the numeric values. Therefore any item has to be rendered as an individual line, rollup strategies are useless in this case.
