Im new to openhab but i find everything getting a long as we progress tru-out our renovation.
We are nearing the end so im trying to get everything up and running in its final form.
we have 3 rooms with dimmers and that is pretty easy in the basicUI to get it working.( Long live the generator)
However i would like to create Buttons with for example 20% 50% and 70%.
But i cant seem to figure out how to create a button and what the code needed is to send.
Its a Velbus installation, i’ve found out that the vmbdmir support ON/OFF and percentage.
I can’t seem to figure out how to send a percentage to the channel and to create a normal “button” in simpleUI.
I have 0 coding background so i can make it work with examples only…
I’ve tried via selection element, if i don’t make my sitemap go offline i can get a button to show up (with some underlying menu) so not ideal but i still am unable to send a specfic value…
For a bit of clarification; you don’t do that.
You send a command to an Item, and it will get passed to any linked channel.
If your Item is a Dimmer type, you can command it ON/OFF or numeric, for a percentage.
See previous post for how to build a UI element to do that.

Following on from our WhatsApp chat last night, I’ve bitten the bullet and looked at BasicUI again.
I can see what you mean about its suitability for phone layouts.
I’ve created this frame to show the same Dimmer Item in different Sitemap elements
