I have an Item that displays chance of Frost:
String Frost "chance on Frost" [%s]" <frost>
As I wanted the item to change its valuecolor, I defined it in the sitemap, in the ‘Weather frame’ as follows:
Text item=Frost valuecolor=[Freeze>2="green", Freeze>0="orange", Freeze<0="blue"]
If a group item (called “Freeze”) changes, I have a rule that updates it with “YES” or “no”, depending on whether any of the group temps drops to zero or below.
Works great, dynamic frost-yes, frost-no icons work as well, colorchange worked well
But… i also wanted it to appear in my ‘Plants’ group (that is part of a different frame, my "Home and Garden frame)
So, I added a group to the item as follows (I just added a group to the existing, did not duplicate the item)
String Frost "chance on Frost" [%s]" <frost> (Plants)
and yes the item now appears on my ‘Plants’ screen as well as in my ‘Weather’ screen.
But here comes: the value Yes/no gets updated perfectly and the dynamic icon works well in both screens, but only in my ‘Weather’ screen the value color gets updated, in my Plants screen it is not. Ditto if I try labelcolor
So… what did I do wrong… and to be clear… I only defined the item in the sitemap file and once in the items file, so it really is the same item, I just added a group to it
