relay switch on mage page tiles on raspberry pi

HI

Has anyone added relay switches to the tiles on the main pages? I've managed to add a switch to the tile but I cant select/switch it? I added this to the tile

Tile {

width: 160

height: bottomRow.height

editable: true

readOnly: false

color: "#538ed7"

border.width: 2

border.color: "#fff"


MbSwitch {

id: manualSwitch1

name: qsTr("L/L")

bind: "com.victronenergy.system/Relay/1/State"

show: hasRelay1



}

I'm guessing ive missed a comand or something? when i added the MbSwitch to pagemain.qml it works ok. I'd just like to be able to switch the relays from one of the main tiles rather than having to open menu.

Hope this makes sense

Thanks Mark

Hi Mark,


Did you ever get this to work? I want to add 4 relay switches to the main page and have just started using the Venus OS on Raspberry Pi


Thanks,

BTW, you can usually determine what's causing the white screen by examining the GUI log file: /var/log/gui/current. You can at least determine where the error is occurring (file name and line number).

It looks like the switches on the pages screens are handled differently than on the setup menus. Look at code on OverviewMobile.qml. There are three buttons at the bottom of that screen. There is code to handle the display (e.g., acModeButton tile) but also to handle button ("Keys") and mouse clicks.
