Help with a function

I would like to write a function that does the following:

Filters messages from topic zigbee2mqtt/Hue_dimmer_main_bedroom on payload.action = "off_press"


For each matching received message, the function sends one of the following msg.payload on topic zigbee2mqtt/Hue_light_main_bedroom :

{"color_temp": "coolest", "transition":0.5}
{"color_temp": "cool", "transition":0.5}
{"color_temp": "neutral", "transition":0.5}
{"color_temp": "warm", "transition":0.5}
{"color_temp": "warmest", "transition":0.5}

So each click of the button cycles through from coolest to warmest, then starts again at coolest.

Any tips would be appreciated.

here you go...

var opts = [
    {"color_temp": "coolest", "transition":0.5},
    {"color_temp": "cool", "transition":0.5},
    {"color_temp": "neutral", "transition":0.5},
    {"color_temp": "warm", "transition":0.5},
    {"color_temp": "warmest", "transition":0.5}

var opt = context.get("opt") || 0;
msg.payload = opts[opt];

if(opt >= opts.length) opt = 0;
context.set("opt", opt); 

return msg;

demo flow...

That's great thank you, I did not expect an answer so soon! It works!

Do I understand this correctly:

You store the variables in a table (?)
var opt = context.get("opt") || 0; (don't understand, why OR 0 ?)
Set msg.payload

Increment by one
If length is greater than table entries, reset to 0
Set opt value as opt

return the payload..

I'm sure I got a lot wrong there! :upside_down_face:

I've never used context.set / context.get.
