I am trying to figure out how to, implement dimming using the slider in the app.
Up until now, I simply had a number of responses which would set the dim level at a fixed percentage, eg, 10,20,40,70 % etc, and my control menu had an option to set at those specific levels.
However, with the slider, how do I implement dimming via the slider ?
My understanding is that the control menu needs to have no on/off options in order for the slider to be present, so I have done that, but the use of the slider has no effect.
Does the slider value adjust the counter value, and as such set the dimming value ?

The slider sets the slider position 0 to 255 into the comfort counterFor some of the UCM Modules, this change in counter value should send the counter value to the mapped register. This works with CBus2, Zwave, KNX but currently Velbus does not have this mechanism
So you will have to conitnue with the method of using the control menu to set diferent dimming values for the time being
