MAX!Binding: Multiple actions with one buttonclick

Hi all,

i am new and use the actual OpenHab2 and Max!Binding. Is it possible to create 2 buttons per heater - “ON” sets to automatic mode and “OFF” sets manual mode and 0 degrees?

If yes, is it also possible to create these buttons additionally for every heater, so i have 1 click to deactivate or actives every heater in the house?

Best regards,

You should try to use rules to achieve this functionality (perform “multiple actions with one buttonclick”)

You would define a new Switch (proxy) item (ON/OFF) for each heater and then based on the state of this item, you would send the relevant commands to the Max bound items (mode & temp) using a rule.

You can also group the Switches so that you can control all of them via the Group item.

these are some great links, thanks! But for me as a beginner there are only more questions. What is the syntax of my postUpdate, for example? Hope someone did something similar and posts some code. Until this i will read the documentations about this topics.
