I am hoping I missed something and what I am trying to do is easy, but it appears to be missing from the docs. Can you use the default mappings that are inside a binding without needing to redo the work a second time by typing in a custom mapping for a Selection element in your sitemap file?
If I go to the CONTROL tab of paperUI it works how I want it to and the friendly names are all there, but not in the sitemap without creating a mapping which seems stupid as it is doubling up the work when it is already done.
I have written a binding that uses a number channel and have given all the numbers a nice friendly name tag in the thing definition XML file, yet when I leave out a mapping in the sitemap the drop down box is blank and empty. Is this normal and is there a way to load the work already done without doing it a second time over in the sitemap?
Yes I have looked here and searched the forum and came up blank…
I did, default gives a read only list of numbers and no friendly name. By read only I mean you can not select one from the list at least this was the result on iPhone app with 2.4 stable. Selection gives a fully blank list with no numbers or names.
So the solution is to use habpanel or Re type all 80+ preset names out again? I take it the paper ui replacement is still not released and won’t be for over a year from now in openhab3 ?
