I don’t know how to ask this question … sorry
I’e got ESP with IR for remote control my old audio player. Now I can send properly all codes . I created items for ON/OFF, MUTE etc. but I’ve got problem with volume . I would like use dimmer with stepper list widget . I need only - and + value between isn’t important.

When we use switch we need 2 values ON and OFF but how I should name VOL+ and VOL- to use it with this widget ?

My item is normal string with state description


The stepper widget just cannot be used for this. By design, it only works with numbers, it will not work with increment and decrement commands. It’s not a matter of changing the commands that this item receives, there’s just no way to get a stepper to send the string type commands that your IR item needs.

You can look at this recent thread for a very similar question and an example of how to create a widget that looks like the stepper widget but will actually send arbitrary string commands:
