I had several custom sensors that were linked to images. They were working just fine until a week ago. Now none of them work. The problem appears to be that the state information is not being set in the link tag for the images anymore. As a test I added these sensors to a label and what I get back is the "value" text not the "name" text. I created a new and simpler sensor to test this with a new image and still no luck. Below is the snippets from the controller and panel xml that is being generated.

from controller xml

    <image id="3710">
      <include type="sensor" ref="240653" />
    <sensor id="240653" name="weatherIcon" type="custom">
      <include type="command" ref="3716" />
      <state name="rainyIcon" value="rainy" />
      <state name="cloudyIcon" value="cloudy" />
    <command id="3716" protocol="http">
      <property name="pollingInterval" value="10m" />
      <property name="url" value="" />
      <property name="xpath" value="//response/current_observation/icon" />
      <property name="name" value="weatherIcon" />

from panel xml

      <absolute left="634" top="1339" width="28" height="30">
        <image id="3710" src="OpenRemote.Logo.30x32.png">
          <link type="sensor" ref="240653" />
        </image>                                                            <-- NOTE no state information

NOTE: The image has a png attached to each state from the sensor but those images do not appear in a state list off of the image.

Thank you for reporting.

You're using Pro 1.0.14 right ?
I'll take a look at it and try to reproduce with your sample and will let you know.

That is correct Pro 1.0.14

Just deployed 1.0.15 Pro Designer, this should fix the issue. No change on the controller side.

Please let you know if it works for you. Thanks.

i seem to be having a similar but slightly different problem its with sensor text ive set like open and close and i get on and off. just updated to 1.0.14

Yes, there is another issue with the switch sensor that I need to look into.
Close to the top of my list but been too busy to address for now. Will happen soon.

Switch sensor issue should now be fixed with the Pro 1.0.16 release that has been deployed.

BTW. I did a controller sync on a fresh OpenRemote install and noticed that none of the custom sensor images were copied. I manually copied the images and all worked fine.

Just wanted to double check when you did experience that.

There is a fix in Designer Pro 1.0.17 that solves this issue, fix went live 25/10.

If you still have the issue, could you describe exactly what you designed so I can try to reproduce.

Sorry for the late reply I was traveling. I did my test 2 days before your fix. Version 1.0.17 fixed this.
Thanks Again
