I’m trying to figure out how to make blocks by looking at code people have posted.
I set a simple goal of having a block that is one color for one state, and another color for another state.
This code works for that objective, but I’m not sure why:
component: oh-label-cell config: header: TV Power footer: '="Input: "+(items.Proxy_TV_Livingroom.state)' icon: f7:tv stateStyle: fontSize: 40px color: =(items.Proxy_TV_Livingroom.state=="ON")?"green":"blue" item: RoomTVPower action: toggle actionItem: Proxy_TV_Livingroom actionCommand: ON actionCommandAlt: OFF slots: null
the reason I do not know why it works is the ‘item: RoomTVPower’ is a nonexistent item and if I change it to the
‘Proxy_TV_Livingroom’ item instead of successfully toggling blue/green it toggles green/white.
similarly for my attempt at a read-only block using this code:
component: oh-label-cell config: header: Raining footer: '="Rain: "+(items.V_Raining.state)' icon: f7:tv stateStyle: fontSize: 40px color: =(items.V_Raining.state=="ON")?"green":"blue" item: V_Raining slots: null
with the item being ‘V_Raining’ it toggles between green and white… and if I change the item to ‘Proxy_TV_Livingroom’ it successfully toggles between green/white but appears to be showing the TV’s status not the rain status.
Removing the item all together I can see the change in status in the footer, but neither color appears.
I’m sure I’m doing something stupid because I can’t wrap my head around what is happening here, but all of my typical troubleshooting methods cannot get me to where I want to be.
What am I missing!?!?
