"No Icon" as a Tile Icon option

Tom Guelker 2 years ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes updated by Tom Bering 4 months ago 6

I would like to have no icon at all for several things. Only when they are triggered should the icon become visible.

I searched the library using zero and blank and null and none and no icon but found nothing.

Hi Tom,

This request sounds wacky, lol, but I posted it here as a Feature Request anyway. (At the moment, we are not adding icons "one-by-one" upon request, and, essentially, this is a one-off request for a "blank" icon.)

Could you explain your use case(s) is more detail, please?


I don’t think it’s wacky. I have a virtual switch that turns on when SHM alarms. It turns the tile red and the LED(?) icon ‘lights up’. When SHM is not alarmed, I would prefer no icon. 


When I walk by the panel, if everything is as it should be, the panel should be blank.  Only when a state changes to on do I want to know about it. 

And thanks, Kevin1 for being a fellow wacko :)

Hi Tom,

If you want ALL "normal" or "info" State Tiles to appear Blank, then an available workaround for now is to create a custom Theme which uses low contrast or no-contrast colors for those Intentions. In other words, make the icon color the same as the Tile color.

Please give it a try.

Will do. Thanks for the suggestion.

I'll necro this, "No Icon" is still not a thing? Using the same background color is not a viable option for me atm.
