First of all, english is not my native language, but i hope it won't be too hard to understand my question.

I want to edit some mapobject. I want the Table that shows the Alarms to not show the Alarms that are allready confirmed

Second, i'd like to have the "Sensor Message only on Status Related Background" Object but for the Trees. It should only show the Name of the Tree on it and its background color depending on the Sensors in it. At least 1 unconfirmed Alarm --> RED At least 1 Warning --> Orange Only Paused, confirmed Alarms and normaly working Sensors --> Green

Im pretty new to HTML or CSS, so i hope that someone is able to help me.

Hi Alexander,

As for the alarm table, it can be done as described here.

As for the quite dynamic tree, there is no tweak to do this. However you could try setting up an XML/Rest sensor as described here that counts all sensors that are currently in "down" state (includes only "down", because acknowledged state is different, called "downacksens" as stated in the article), put a limit on it and it will turn red. Add this sensor then to your map to have a simple indication there about sensors being down without acknowledgement.

Kind regards.
