Allow creating Custom additional Tile Intentions

Justin Cox 3 weeks ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 weeks ago 1

I understand why you guys created tile intentions...makes sense. That said, at the end-of-the-day, it's really just a mechanism to control styling, why not open that up? Allow the creation of tile intentions with styling options and people can create whatever they'd like!

Custom CSS Hover & Borders

lanky8804 2 months ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Ed Word 2 weeks ago 3

Hi

Just getting into AT, have been playing with creating my own theme but very limited. Looking to further customise CSS so can change things like hover colour, border colours etc.

Is anyone able to point me in the right direction? Comfortable with HTML and CSS coding.

Thanks

Answer

Hi Alexander,

The theme builder was designed for people who don't like looking under the hood, so it exposes a limited amount of Panel properties.

We are going to enable users to enter custom CSS to override most properties. This feature is coming out reasonably soon, however we don't provide any ETAs. Please stay tuned for release announcements.

Thanks

Alex

Ability to set transparency opacity in Theme Colors

Justin Cox 3 weeks ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated 3 weeks ago 2

Would be nice to be able to control the opacity or transparency of theme colors. For example the "Normal Tile Intention" color clearly has some additional transparency that isn't on other "intention" states. This makes it difficult to achieve the design I'm going for. You could remove that opacity style all-together or even better, add an opacity control to all color pickers.

Add Tile Intention for Acceleration Sensor

FiReBaL1 12 months ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 months ago 3

The Tile Intention selection is missing from acceleration sensors. I prefer the "Warn" for my contact sensors and now the acceleration tile doesn't match the others.

Ability to change "intent color" for Routine, Clock, and Nest Dual Thermostat tiles

Andrew Brenner 2 months ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 months ago 1

As the title suggests, I'm asking if the developers could please add the capability for me to apply a theme's intent color style to any of the tiles. 

Currently, it looks like there's no option to apply anything other than the info style to the routine, clock and Nest thermostat tiles, and this makes me sad.

I'd like to style some routine tiles a different color so that they stand out, but I can't do that now without also applying the same style to the digital clock and nest tiles I also have.

Set Tile active state or color based on thresholds of numeric value or other Attributes

Shawn 2 years ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Dave Mills 2 months ago 24

Any consideration in the future to illuminating the tile(s) based on real time or cumulative energy would be terrific. For example, I use the Aeon Energy Monitor for my well pump system to know when the below ground pump is running or not. 


When it is not running, the real time energy is 0 watts. When it is running it is 2540 watts.


If the respective panel had a parameter to set that would illuminate the panel when the real time energy is greater than 2000w, then I would know at a glance the pump is running. I think others may find usefulness in having the panel(s) illuminate for various reasons.



AT has been rock solid here, thanks for an amazing product!

Option to Hide the Value in Tile footers

N Vass 4 months ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 4 months ago 1

Firstly - Thanks for Action tiles I use it exclusively as my Smartthings front End and I love it!


One thing that would be really nice and I think may quite easy to implement.


  • An option in the Individual tile setup to display or hide the value, In the same way as the option to show a tile header.


Use case:

A Switch. I can clearly see the state of the switch from the color. I don't need to be told 'On' or 'Off' as well.


I use Simulated Indicators to show the state of various things from Webcore and it works well but the 'Open' and 'Closed' is irrelevant and it would be wonderful to have the option to remove it.

Broad Icon library applicable to all Tile Types

Is it possible to see more icons added for switches?  I personally would like to see automotive options as I am creating a WeMo D1 Car Starter and would like to see a vehicle for my tile.  Hoping there could be a car, van, Jeep, pickup truck and a SUV.  Thoughts??

Smart Home Monitor (SHM) intention colors

ash stokes 1 year ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 5 months ago 5

Hello,


I think what would be useful with the tile intention options, is for the smart home monitor tile, if disarmed, just display grey (as it currently does), if it's Armed (Stay) it should be yellow (as it currently does), but if it's armed (away) then should be red. The reason being is I've got outside motion sensors e.g. garage connected to the alarm which are rarely gone in and then motion sensors in the main rooms we'd go in if we were home so looking at the dashboard would easily be identifiable by colour to see if smartthings had failed to return the alarm to Home (stay) by geo-location, stopping walking in and setting the alarm off.


Cheers,

Set colors on a per-Tile basis

Stuart Salmon 6 months ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 6 months ago 1

The new theme builder is a welcome addition, but is still rather limited.  How difficult would it be to give us granular color control over individual tiles?  I, like many here, use simple actuators and virtual switches to control or report on a variety of different functions that we might want to color code by type.

Is it possible to change the color of a single tile? And custom icon?

mr.smith 1 year ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 6 months ago 11

I'd like to make a certain tile a specific color and give it a custom icon. How can I do that?

Answer
  1. As of v6.8.0; Custom Themes were added as a feature which allows a great deal of color control, applicable to the 4 "Intentions" that can be applied to the States of tiles (assigned in Tile Settings). Overriding the Theme's colors on a one-off basis has not been implemented, but the request is noted. As is providing colors for specific ranges of values; to be applicable to numeric value Tiles. We note the value of this.
  2. The ability to choose from a broad selection of Icons and have them applicable to "all" Tile Types is covered in this Feature Request:  It is In Progress, but your Votes and Follows are still notable:  https://support.actiontiles.com/communities/12/topics/3230-broad-icon-library-applicable-to-all-tile-types

Share Your Themes Here

Sgni 7 months ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 7 months ago 6

I'm not sure if we should share them as files or as text within the post. 
In the interest of making it obvious what's in the bundle of text right off that bat, I'm posting the full text of the themes in the post. Please let me/us know if we should do it the other way. 

I call this one "Mint Chocolate"...

{
  "accent-background-color": "#003000",
  "accent-content-color": "#1B5E20",
  "accent-header-color": "#1B5E20",
  "info-background-color": "#160b03",
  "info-content-color": "#795548",
  "info-header-color": "#795548",
  "normal-background-color": "#001000",
  "normal-content-color": "#43A047",
  "normal-header-color": "#005000",
  "panel-background-color": "#000500",
  "tileset-text-color": "#00C853",
  "warn-background-color": "#D50000",
  "warn-content-color": "#FFD600",
  "warn-header-color": "#FFD600"
}



I call this one "Chocolate Cherry", and use it as a night theme...

{
  "accent-background-color": "#200000",
  "accent-content-color": "#400000",
  "accent-header-color": "#500000",
  "info-background-color": "#100000",
  "info-content-color": "#3E2723",
  "info-header-color": "#3E2723",
  "normal-background-color": "#000000",
  "normal-content-color": "#600000",
  "normal-header-color": "#400000",
  "panel-background-color": "#000000",
  "tileset-text-color": "#00C853",
  "warn-background-color": "#D50000",
  "warn-content-color": "#FFD600",
  "warn-header-color": "#FFD600"
}



Note: On both of these, since I haven't actually thought about it much yet, I consider the settings for 'Warn Tile Intent' unfinished, and not a fit with the rest of my themes.

Apply Custom Theme to all Panels

I'd like to suggest a way from within the theme designer to apply any one of your themes to all panels across the board without having to go into each panel to set the new theme.

Panel Shortcuts shouldn't transition through white flash.

Shane William 12 months ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 7 months ago 9

When going from one panel to another the screen briefly flashes white as it transitions, is there any way to remove that? I have a series of black panels and it's really blinding at night especially.


Might making this transition optional also possibly improve performance when switching Panels?

Icons missing for Routine Tile

adamph 8 months ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 7 months ago 3

With previously added routines, I was able to change the default icons for the tile in ActionTiles. E.g. a ST routine that turned everything off, I changed the icon to the power symbol. 


I created a new routine today, and it appears I now can only change the tile icon with 8 choices to choose from, 3 of which don't even load up for me (they're blank below).


Thanks.

Use Tile background fill to indicate Dim Level

Mads Larsen 8 months ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 8 months ago 0

It would be nice to have a "total tile fade" option instead of selecting the small 3:dot on the right side.


If you hold the tile and slide it from left to right (0% to 100%) and selecting the brightness power level.


Here is an example of what I mean. See the tile to the right.


100%


75%


40%


10%




Incorrect % on the tile, but you get the point. :)

Change Panel Theme based on LUX, time, Routine, or Mode

Yagga 1 year ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Tom_G_2010 10 months ago 4

I would like to know if we can add a feature to change panel themes from one to another (eg. Elements to Slate) based on LUX, Time of day our Routine (Modes). This will help my tablet mounted on wall to be visible based on the time of day (lighting) so it can be seen best with appropriate background.

Is there a High Priority / highly visible Tile style?

M2 10 months ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 10 months ago 1

Looking for a way to turn a certain tile red when active.  Can I make a certain tile high priority so it pops more?   As you can see, I have a goodly amount of tiles but sometimes I miss important ones (like front Door Bell Ring or Garage Tilt Sensor). 

Answer

Each of the available Themes (on the Panel Style settings page of the Panel builder), has 4 different tile "Intention" appearances. Once you've picked your Theme, just use the Tile Settings / Tile Intention option to select which Intention to apply to your "High Priority" Tiles.
