How do I handle dimmer-events when using IKEA’s five button remote?
I can handle events to turn on or off things using the remote by acting on the different events occurring when just short-pressing any of the buttons. Problem is that I cannot find a way to handle the dimming events.
When I long-press a button, I do receive the corresponding event for a long press. Then, no new event is sent until I release that same button. So far so good.
My problem is that the button I do push just fires the long-press event once when I do a long-press. In order to act upon the long-press event, I guess I’d have to use some kind of
do..while statement to increase or decrease the brightness until the button is released. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be such a thing as
do...while in Jinja2.
So, what is the correct take on this in order to make the dimming feature work?
I have searched, but the examples I’ve found don’t work as expected.
Any idea, code examples or if there’s some kind of hidden setting, would be appreciated.
