Use Triggers in Actions

Is it possible to use rule Triggers in Actions? For example,

Trigger; button 4 pressed or button 2 pressed

Action, If button 4 pressed, do X, else do Y.

Yes. I do it all the time. Does it not work for you?

yes, you just have to list each in the rule and have multiple if conditions in the one rule. you could also create a separate rule for each button press so it makes it easier to edit

Is there a reason you don't want to use Button Controller for this? It's not impossible to do in Rule Machine, but it is awkward (I'd probably recommend just making separate rules--why not if if you want different actions for each, anyways?). Button Controller has a very similar interface.


I'm using a local variable which the Button Controller doesn't appear to support. Maybe I could switch to a hub variable.

They are currently implemented as separate rules. Wanting to consolidate.

How? i.e. which "capability for Action Condition" do I select?

I didn't see the fact you were using buttons. My comment apparently didn't help.
