RE: Dashboard design process question(s)?
How to use CSS to design Dashboard without Bricking HE?
For example, when installing CSS code (Advanced>CSS tab) does the CSS code replace the excising HE code in the right software spot?
Installed App devices picked from the Device list and Templates and are assigned a tile ID# when installed to the dashboard right?
When adding a Tile, does the Tile IDs label all of the device properties to be controlled from the selected Device and Template choices?
If so, then only need to know a Tile ID to modify via CSS any tile in the Dashboard?
Knowing the Tile ID can CSS code do these modifications?
Replace the Tile with a device (ICON) image? Y/N
Can the Tile ICON image be transparent? Y/N
Can the Tile ICON image auto size or be pre-sized? Y/N
Use different device Tile images (ICON) one for Inactive and one for Active? Y/N
If so, how to find the existing HE tile code to modify?
Do tile and background images need to be Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)? Y/N
If images are SVG and used for Dashboard background, will they auto scale to fit the page? Y/N
Background for the above Qs:
New to HE and how to modify Dashboard.
Posted on the HE Community for help on how to HE Dashboard Design and how to use HPM.
HE community provided me with very helpful URL links and how to use HPM.
HE community turns out to have very technically experienced people.
Asking for help on HE is very refreshing and non-offensive.
Most automation community boards I’ve used first mention how uneducated you must be, then basically tell you to move on when asking questions!
This help ask is because I’m concerned, I might Brick the HE without a better understanding of the Dashboard CSS install, removal process and where to access HE code to modify.
Since I planned on using, HE for several installs, would like to know how to install the dashboard background images, and have device tiles that are transparent images on the dashboard background that can change when either active or inactive.
I’m retired Creston programmer and for years have said we can make our Crestron system talk to a nail. HE may have broken the code relative to cost in comparison and would be fun to say that about HE.
