I am writing a widget, and in the configuration I’d like to have a field to select an item and then a second field where a state of the item shall be selected. Is it possible to configure the second field to offer a list of the available states of the Item (e.g. ON/OFF)?
My YAML looks like, this, the second field is where I’d like to see the list of possible states. Maybe the context parameter is relevant here, but I could not find a documentation of what values are allowed there, and the only examples I could find use context=item.
- context: item
description: Item to use with this button.
- description: Command to send to the item.
I can’t say if this is comprehensive not can I say all of these will work for widgets, but [Do not install] Rule Template Parameters Experiments and Examples has examples of a bunch of them.
I cobbled together these examples based on Configuration Descriptions | openHAB
Thanks - from those examples and the documentation it seems what I am trying to achieve is not possible.
Yes, you can specify a list of options for a widget property. It looks like this:
- default: F
description: Temperature units
- label: °C
- label: °F
Thanks, but what I was looking for was to automatically get the state options available for a selected item, like you have it when working with items and rules.
