Help needed - writing my first custom Default List Item

Hi guys,

I just wrote my first custom list widget - but somehow I’m seemingly unable to arrange icon, label, stepper and chevron similar to the oh-list-item’s (icon & label arranged on the left side, stepper / chevron on the right side). Any hints?

My custom widget:

Default arrangement that I want to achieve:

I’m not using the default oh-stepper-item list widget since I’m using a stepper and a button ( > ) to open a widget with additional settings / info. You can add actions to the oh-stepper-item, but then every click on the stepper buttons also opens the popup…:

I have to say our new MainUI is a nice additional rabbit hole to spend some weeks :flushed: :sweat_smile:

Edit:

Yes, this is possible. The trick is that in order for an list item to accordion the parent to that list item must have the accordionList: true setting. With the default list widgets you don’t actually have access to the list that is the parent of these items so you have to insert something in between. The oh-repeater is a perfect candidate for this because it allows you to give the list item a parent that doesn’t interfere with the rendering of the list item as part of a list. You just have to make sure that the settings you give the repeater only run once (so that you don’t duplicate your list item) and then you just ignore the repeaters loop variable in the actual list item widget.

Here’s the version I use for the default widgets for my window blinds. This renders a set of accordion buttons in based on the preset commands I have for the blinds.

Oh, this is great. After some confusion why only the first collapsed list item would be shown (seems like accordions will only hide / show one item) and working around that one by adding a list ‘in between’, it actually works:

Collapsed:

Expanded:

Now I just have to find out how to move the stepper item in line with the title (first pic / collapsed view) :sweat_smile:
Any ideas? :grin:

Odd. That appears to be a some bug with the stepper widget when the accordion chevron is drawn. You probably will have to make your base item a regular oh-list-item and then add a oh-stepper to the after slot of that item.

component: oh-repeater
config:
  for: dummyVar
  in:
    - nothing: here
  accordionList: true
slots:
  default:
    - component: oh-list-item
      config:
        icon: f7:thermometer
        iconColor: '=(Number.parseFloat(items[props.prefix + "_SetTemperature"].state) < 18) ? "blue" : (Number.parseFloat(items[props.prefix + "_SetTemperature"].state) < 21) ? "green" : (Number.parseFloat(items[props.prefix + "_SetTemperature"].state) < 23) ? "orange" : "red"'
        title: =props.title
      slots:
        after:
          - component: oh-stepper
            config:
              item: =props.prefix + "_SetTemperature"
              min: 15
              max: 23
              step: 0.5
              autorepeat: true
              autorepeatDynamic: true
              style:
                padding-right: 10px
        accordion:
          - component: oh-list
            config:
              mediaList: true
            slots:
              default:
#etc...etc

That works :+1:

EDIT: Nope, thats not a good solution. It looks like it should - but every click on the stepper now also expands / collapses the accordion item :face_with_raised_eyebrow: Bug or feature? :thinking:

EDIT 2: And one additional problem - the first entry of the collapsable items, Aktuelle Temperatur should open the default analyzer widget - but it doesn’t. Any ideas why?

...
                - component: oh-list-item
                  config:
                    title: Aktuelle Temperatur
                    icon: f7:thermometer
                    iconColor: '=(Number.parseFloat(items[props.prefix + "_ActualTemperature"].state) < 18) ? "blue" : (Number.parseFloat(items[props.prefix + "_ActualTemperature"].state) < 21) ? "green" : (Number.parseFloat(items[props.prefix + "_ActualTemperature"].state) < 23) ? "orange" : "red"'
                    after: =items[props.prefix + "_ActualTemperature"].state
                    action: analyzer
...

Hmmm… that’s interesting. The expected behavior when a list item is an accordion is that clicking anywhere on the list item should trigger the expand/collapse. I had assumed that the extra widget would override that, not work in parallel. However, that appears to be the f7 behavior and not an OH bug. You may just not be able to accomplish both the stepper and the accordion in the same list item.

I don’t know if that’s the complete widget definition, but it looks like you are missing the actionAnalyzerItems key.

That would make sense - have to test it as soon as I’m back from work :sweat_smile:

Nope, neither actionAnalyzerItems or actionAnalyzerCoordSystem does fix the problem :thinking:

                - component: oh-list-item
                  config:
                    title: Aktuelle Temperatur
                    icon: f7:thermometer
                    iconColor: '=(Number.parseFloat(items[props.prefix + "_ActualTemperature"].state) < 18) ? "blue" : (Number.parseFloat(items[props.prefix + "_ActualTemperature"].state) < 21) ? "green" : (Number.parseFloat(items[props.prefix + "_ActualTemperature"].state) < 23) ? "orange" : "red"'
                    after: =items[props.prefix + "_ActualTemperature"].state
                    action: analyzer
                    actionAnalyzerCoordSystem: time
                    actionAnalyzerItems: =props.prefix + "_ActualTemperature"

Have you tried:

actionAnalyzerItems: =items[props.prefix + "_ActualTemperature"]

Same result - nothing happens when I click on the list item.

In the working example I have the syntax looks like:

  action: analyzer
  actionAnalyzerItems:
    -  Partition3_Armed

Battling with the expression though :frowning:

actionAnalyzerItems requires an array. There are two ways to do that here:

actionAnalyzerItems:
  - element 1
  - element 2
  - element 3

But as far as I know you won’t be able to use expression to dynamically generate item names that way. The other option is a single line array using brackets in an expression:

actionAnalyzerItems: =[element 1, element 2, element 3]

Because this is already an expression you can build whatever you need for each element, so in this case you want something like:

actionAnalyzerItems: =[props.prefix + "_ActualTemperature"]

That does the trick :+1:

I know that feeling :sweat_smile:


So for now there is only one open problem :smiley: How to bring accordionList and oh-stepper together in a way that:

  • everything is in the same row like this
    image
  • but without interference between the stepper buttons and the expand/collapse action?

So my new idea is to discard the accordion list and to just set a switch to ON / OFF to decide if the additional settings / infos should be visible - see this topic.
