The PushButton widget

Available since version: 2013

Description

Adds a button to the visu that sends a defined value to the BUS when you press and release. E.g. pushing a 1 and releasing a 0. This makes it possible, for example, to simulate a push button to open and close a garage door, blinds or blinds.

Settings

The behaviour and appearance of the PushButton widget can be influenced by using certain attributes and elements. The following tables show the allowed attributes and elements and their possible values. The screenshots show, how both can be edited in the editor.

Attributes underlined by ..... are mandatory, all the others are optional and be omitted.
