Hey ho ppl,
I try to switch the state of a switch node (restore status after reboot) by using a function node
but failed. I ve no Idea what the switch awaits for a msg object to only switch the state.
These are my switch settings: click
Hey ho ppl,
You have to send
msg.payload with a value of
You can use an inject node and check the checkbox to inject it once (this will also be triggered when you deploy the flows).
Actually I think you have to send exactly the string you have specified for on payload or off payload.
Yes but I only want to set the switch state without sending the string. Sending the string will cause an action which I want avoid.
In that case clear the box that says to pass the message on if it matches.
@WhiteLion Did that help?
No, I made a more ore less complicated solution using function nodes with multiple outputs and setted the switch to true / false.
So with that checkbox cleared it still passed on an input message to the output?
the checkbox of the switch is cleared too, thats right
But for my case it was just a part of the solution. Like I said the flow is totaly reworked and the switch node has to be changed from string to bool.
