OH3 sidemap doesn't show any values

I’ve just started with OH and try to setup a sidemap to show up in the iOS App. Sidemap works, I got frames and sliders and switches, but simple text widged doesn’t show any value, even when I have linkes the item with them.

This is the code of the sidemap showing some details of my car:

sitemap Auto label="WL-ID 300E" {
    Frame label="Klima" {
        Slider icon="temperature" label="Temperatur" item=WLID300EID3_control_TargetTemperature switchEnabled="true" minValue=10 maxValue=25 step=0.5
        Switch icon="switch" label="Klimatisierung" item=WLID300EID3_control_Climater
    Frame label="Akku & Reichweite" {
        Text icon="batterylevel" label="Akku-Stand" item=WLID300EID3_charger_ChargingLevel
        Text icon="battery" label="Reichweite" item=WLID300EID3_range_TotalRange

Showing the sidemap with the Basic UI in my desktop doesn’t show any values, nor displaying it in the iOS app.

The items have values, I could see it in the backend at the Model view.

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: Rasperry PI 4, 4 GB
    • OS: Openhabian
    • Java Runtime Environment: 11
    • openHAB version: 3.2

The items have values, I could see it in the backend at the Model view.

You need to define the formatting pattern as shown here:


Text icon="batterylevel" label="Akku-Stand [%.1f]" item=WLID300EID3_charger_ChargingLevel

should work

You need to add metadata. If you have created the items via ui it’s metadata → state description → pattern

File based config already mentioned before

Is there any way to calculate “m” into “km” for my electric reach of the car, using this patterns?

Set the item type to number:length and just add “km” to your state description.

If you use units of measurement OH will convert automatically

Learned a lot, thank you. Now it works with the metadata state description at the item!
