Actuators Are Showing up as Sensors


#1

When I try to create a button under custom widgets it is showing up as a sensor (fields: data (digital actuator), units(digital I/0) as opposed to actuator.

In the tutorial posted, when you create a button it shows up as a actuator and allows you to set up a virtual channel to post info to.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

actuator is a button widget. a custom button widget is a digital actuator which sends 1 or 0 to your device over the virtual channel selected.
