i use openhab since 1 year now ant there is one thing, which isn´t working since the first version i installed.
Now i´m on 1.8.2. I use classicUI on chrome browser (Win7).
I use the Time/Date-Example from the Demo-sitemap. But time will never refresh automatically. I always have to refresh the webpage on my own to get the correct time.
Is there a way to fix this problem? I opened openhab today morning and now i looked into the chrome browser again and there was still 9am. Then i did a refresh (F5) and now i can see the correct time 4pm.
Just to be clear, you have a DateTime item in the sitemap, and when its state is updated to a new, different DateTimeType, the classic UI does not show the new date/time until you refresh the browser? If so, I would have sworn that that works for me. Could you confirm?
I’ve been using openhab for a little over a week now, installed on a pi4 and it has been working really well. Got SmartThings interfaced, works much better than expected, InfluxDB+Grafana, Weather, MQTT was todays task and it works really well, once I got past all the confusing examples and read the current documentation.
But in my testing of MQTT I found that my “default.sitemap” is being updated/auto-refreshed CORRECTLY in the edge, chrome browsers and openhab android app.
However, I created a couple of new sitemaps which only auto-refresh correctly in the openhab app, but NOT in the browsers. This happens with my MQTT items, smartthings items and items populated with in rules.
I was just coming back to say I found the problem, I changed the sitemap label without changing the sitemap name within the file. If I had looked at the log, I would have saved myself some time, as it clearly spells out the problem. Thx rossko for your response.
Maybe you did not notice but you just necrobumped a very old topic, in fact a 2 year old topic
