Hi Experts,

I'm using OpenRemote with KNX. When I do a test design, everything is working fine now. However when I insert all available commands (few 100's) and sensors, I get into trouble creating a slider or switch.

Is it my PC or browser which is the bottleneck or am I doing something wrong?

Thank you for your help!

See screenshot:

It might be a browser issue.
Can you try on the beta designer:

Hi Marcus,

Thank you for your swift response! It is working fine with the link you've provided!

The right click to create a switch by selecting an On and OFF command is not working. Anyhow I can proceed with playing around, once again thank you for your support!

Are you sure you selected a switch sensor in addition to the 2 commands? I can see from the screenshot that you correctly selected the 2 commands and they seem to have the correct name.
I just did the test and for me it worked.

Hi Eric,

Yes I think I'm doing the right things. I've uploaded all commands via CSV file to the UI. Then I select the ON and OFF command, right click and make switch ... error
Did the same in Chrome, IE9 on different commands and using the link provided above ...

Also make sure you've cleared your browser's cache first when switching between two different versions of the app.

If you're selecting ON and OFF command then right-clicking, then it will not work.
As the error states, you need to select 3 things: an ON command, an OFF command AND the sensor.

The idea on this part of the "object model" is:
The switch object represents the complete picture, it has a state (that is obtained from a sensor), a command to turn on and a command to turn off.
The sensor object represents a state. In this case, it'll be a switch sensor, meaning it has an on and an off state. To get the state from the "device", a sensor has an associated read command.

So for KNX, in addition to the ON and OFF command, you should have a STATUS command.
If the switch sensor is not created by the import, you should create it from the New menu at the top.
Once all of this is in place, select the 3 elements and use the right click menu to create the switch object.

PS: I know the names are confusing and this will be reviewed at some point down the road but it's just terminology and it should still work for now.
