Button in TopBar


#21

No also no result in the topBar, I try it later again with a chrome browser


#22

sorry - but working here as well...


#23

Also in chrome browser no result, what could it be? I have Node-RED installed on the Raspberry Pi and the latest version of Node-RED


#24

Well, it works very well in my Raspberry Pi as well, and it seems browser independent as well

One thing I would just double-check is that the template still is connected with the correct group and tab in the dashboard

If still no go, I suggest you select template node and make an export -> and put it here in a response so we can help you further


#25

Many thanks for the help, it works now. :hugs::hugs:

the problem was i had the template as "Added to site section"

the upper error message is from a function node and the lower from the ui_control here is the flow

how can I add a payload ?


#27

You wanna send a payload to the ui_template and change something for the button? Or do you want the ui_template to send out a payload (this is already working I assume)?


#28

I want the ui_template to send out a payload. At the moment in the ui_template send out a msg: string[], but for the ui_template I need msg.payload

#29

krambriw's example sent a payload... I thought you copied that ?


#30

yes i copied the example from krambriw´s, but it sends for me a msg not a msg.payload. if it was msg.payload the ui_controll would not output an error message or?

#31

Alright, you can do like this:

Create param as a new object, then set the payload to whatever (in this example 'test'

var param = new Object();
param.payload = 'test';

Now when you click the button, it will work

#32

Thanks for your support :smiley:


#33

@krambriw

the button in TopBar works well. I want to hide the side-nav too, but both doesn´t work together so either I hide the side-nav or I show the button in TopBar. Any reason for this?

In the flow are both ui_templates

All tab titles or icons always visible
#34

Sorry, this I do not know. I assume the code for this is in the dashboard nodes but I might be wrong on this


#35

Ok, another question, is there a posibillity to fix the position?
For the groups you do it with position: fixed; top: 11px; left 22px;
Is that possible for the Topbar?


#36

Sorry, I do not have such knowledge


#37

ok,
if you want to display the buttons and hide the navigation menu, you have to implement both code parts in a template, then it works


#38

Nothing meaningful to add.
Just wanted to appreciate @Tobi for great idea and reasonable implementation of what I tried to do some time ago. Thank you!


#39

Hi,

I slightly modded @Tobi's flow to get following:

  • Previous and Next tab buttons.
  • Head title click returns to the main tab.
  • Date/time in custom format (kinda european).
  • Merge side bar hide into top-bar controls.

My question is:
The ui_template node can be a part of of page or a widget in a group. Why the script works when it's widget in a group and doesn't work when it's part of of page?

If I understand the question, your <script> works inside a group, but not when inserted in the <head> of the page? I would expect that, since the scripts loaded into the head of the dashboard do not have access to the Angular scope, in the same way that the other widgets do... there may be some trick to grab the Angular scope, but I'm not sure how to do that.
