Trying to emulate some of my old X-10 use cases in SmartThings, I have been adopting a keypad device to be used within the SmartThings app to set scenes in rooms. I created a 8 button remote but can’t find a way to use configuration to change the labels of the tiles. I thought it would be as easy as putting in preferences that can be called up by the “gear” icon on the device page but what I end up with is “null” for the button labels after the save.
After closer reading in the developer documentation it appears that values declared in the “metadata” section of the device handler cannot be used for elements of tiles.
Any recommendations of how to dynamically set labels of the buttons in the UI for the SmartThings DTH’s? Here is a link to the code I have been working on, thanks:
