Show Current Light color in the Color Picker

Jeff Terrace 2 weeks ago in Things & Capabilities • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 weeks ago 3

It doesn't look like the *current* color of an RGB light shows up anywhere on the dashboard. Even if you pick a color from the color selector, the next time you open it up, the color isn't selected. Am I missing something?

There's a bug such that only DTHs which also set the deprecated Attribute "color" in "#rrggbb" format will trigger the Tile to display the Color Bulb in the footer.

The updated Capability spec only requires Hue and Saturation to be set by a DTH, so we need to fix our code sometime for this.


We'll note this and leave this Topic open for related discussion.


Thanks for finding this little quirk!

There is a current color indication - the small light-bulb icon in the Tile Footer of a color-capable Switch changes to match the selected color or the color reported by the bulb.


But you are correct that the current color setting isn't indicated in the Picker itself.

This is worth discussion, thanks!

Is it my theme? I'm using "Sballoz (High Visibility)" and I don't see that:

The first 5 lights there are all color lights (I can see the color picker when I click on the triple dots).
