Material Design icon defaults to transparent background

Hello all,

I am having a hard problem to solve. I don't think that it should be difficult.

So basically, I have a material design icon that defaults to a transparent background when the flow first loads. However, when I refresh the browser on that flow, the icon displays the correct color which is white.

Now, if I use my navigation buttons to switch to a different flow and back, the icon is again with the transparent background.

I am not sure if this is reproducible on other dashboards. however, I have attached some sample code of what I am doing along with some pics.

Also I should note that I tried to add in a remedy to this where I have a template node that will send out a message to set the color of the icon on start up. However, I have noticed that the message does not get sent out at all.

Please let me know if anyone has had a similar issue to this and how I can solve it.

Without trying to understand what you are doing, there is 1 obvious error in your function...

A single bar | is a bitwise OR not a logical OR (double bar ||)

PS: I use the Monaco editor (a simple setting change in settings.js) and it highlights many more issues than the default ACE editor.

PS2: It is far easier to setup a class for your button and simply set the class dynamically.

hello thank you for your reply. Even with that fix, I am still having issues with it
