    Hi,

    Is there a way to change the icons on a screen dynamically based on a event. For example I have a screen with with wifi on button and when I press it, the wifi on phone will be switched off and the icon on the screen should change to wifi off.

    Please let me know if this is possible.

    Thank You!

    Regards,
    R.Muralidhar

    Hi, I see to ways:
    1. Create two icons in one position on watch screen. One is hidden, other is visible. Tasker sends command to show or hide first/second icon depending on wifi state.
    2. Tasker deletes and creates icon on the watch every time the wifi state changes.

    That is great news!!. I am trying to create a button screen and see no option to hide or show the icons. Please let me know how that can be done.

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Oh, so you mean buttons in a button screen? Sorry, I thought you meant floating icons. In that case only option 2 applies. Create a new screen with the same name and the previous screen will be overwritten.

    Thank You!. The creating of the new screen was looking too cumbersome. So rather what I have done was kept the icons generic and sending a notification to the watch once the action was done. This is working well as well.

    Thank you for all the help.
