I habe a switch, in the dashboard I create “Dummy”-widget and use the switch icon as the symbol.
This icon is showing correctly the actuall status (red or green) (and no action when try to press this icon, this is what I want).
Now I will change the switch icon to own status icons,
i create myswitch-on.svg, myswitch-off.svg (and also try with .png), but will not work.
I put the files into the (correct) folder: /etc/openhab2/icons/classic (and 664 rights)
What have I to choose as “Symbol” source,
“Userdefined Symbol” or “userdefined URL” ?
And what have I to use as the name, I think "myswitch. only.
But is not working
Or is a own dynamic icon not usable here / in this widget ?
Where is my mistake ?
Thx for the hint,
using “userdefined icon” and svg-format: working
using “userdefined icon” and png-format: NOT working (hint: png seems not allowed here!)
using “userdefined url” and svg–format: NOT working (no status switch, always show NAME.svg
using “userdefined url” and png-format: NOT working (no status switch, always show NAME.png
So can it be correct, that only “userdefined icon” with .svg is working in the dashbaord/widget ?
I use this URL in “userdefined URL”: :8080/icon/.svg
Thx for the hint, I tried:
I put it in the “userdefined URL”, but only the NAME.png is shown, not the status-icon (-on or -off)
(and I replace the port to my 8080, I think this is correct for me also here)
As always, the browser’s developer tools are your friends when debugging such issues, in particular what happens in the Network tab when you switch the item on and off - the requests for the icon should appear and you’ll see what the actual response is.
