Use visibleBindingId with 2 values?

I'd like a config field to become visible if one or both of two checkbox values are true. If this is possible can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!

You cannot define it in XML directly, but you can override the method that gets the XML values before the UI is shown. For device settings it would look something like:

Code: Select all
   def getDeviceConfigUiValues(self, pluginProps, typeId, devId):
      valuesDict = indigo.Dict(pluginProps)
      errorsDict = indigo.Dict()

      valuesDict["visibleBindingTagNameUsedInXML"] = something or something_else
      return (valuesDict, errorsDict)

Alternately, you can make the binding link to a hidden field then calculate the correct value for the hidden field in a callback. I can't recall if you can attach a callback to a checkbox change though, so you might have to change the UI controls you use (i.e. a menu with Option 1, Option 2, Option 1&2, then you definitely can do a callback when the menu changes).
