Bug in creating 6x wide Tiles

Another bug, when trying to create a Tile that 6 units wide and 1 unit high, it automatically creates a tile that links back to the same device.

standardTile(“cameraSettings”, “device.status”, width: 6, height: 1) {
state “”, label: “Camera Settings”
}

Try it out. It creates an infinite loop when you click on this tile. (Both iOS and Android). Also reported to ST Support FYR.

The goal here was to create a blank tile (to show status). The same results with valueTile also.

Yep, anything that is 6 wide will automatically have a link to the device. Make it 5 wide and that should solve your problem. This may seem like a “bug” but it’s by design for multiAttribute tiles. We could talk about making an extra Param that could control this, but with our focus being stability right now, that would be a while out most likely.

Could you shed some light on the the intent behind the design so we know how/when to use it.
What’ the extra param you’re referring to and control what?
Any suggestions on option on how to create a blank tile that spans across to create a separation? (any native way)
