Hi,

I'm developing a new binding.
I have a channel-type in channels.xml:
<channel-type id="switchTimes">
<item-type>String</item-type>
<label>Switch Time</label>
<description>Switch times of Mon-Sun format: "XX:XX-XX:XX XX:XX-XX:XX".</description>
<category>Radiator</category>
</channel-type>

and I override this in radiator-fht80b.xml

<channel id="mondaySwitchTimes" typeId="switchTimes">
<label>Monday</label>
</channel>
<channel id="tuesdaySwitchTimes" typeId="switchTimes">
<label>Tuesday</label>
</channel>
<channel id="wednesdaySwitchTimes" typeId="switchTimes">
<label>Wednesday</label>
</channel>
<channel id="thursdaySwitchTimes" typeId="switchTimes">
<label>Thursday</label>
</channel>
<channel id="fridaySwitchTimes" typeId="switchTimes">
<label>Friday</label>
</channel>
<channel id="saturdaySwitchTimes" typeId="switchTimes">
<label>Saturday</label>
</channel>
<channel id="sundaySwitchTimes" typeId="switchTimes">
<label>Sunday</label>
</channel>

Using simple Mode for Item binding The Items will be named with the correct Weekdays - but using manual binding the item name will contain SwitchTime.

As a start I'm looking for the point in the source code where the new Item name is prepared, because GenericItem gets created with the wrong name.

What exactly do you mean by "using manual binding"? How do you do it? Via Paper UI? Via *.item file? Please precisely describe what steps are needed in order to reproduce it, otherwise it's quite hard to guess...

I'm using Paper UI
Make sure Configuration > System > Item Linking > Simple Mode is disabled.

1. In Configuration > Things > "ThingName" > "ChannelName" press the empty circle of said channel ("Tuesday").
2. In the dialogbox select "+Create new item".
3. In the now opened dialogbox "Link channel" the
name will be "FHT80b202_SwitchTime" and the
label will be "Switch Time".

If I had the channel with id="tuesdaySwitchTimes" I would expect to have as
name "FHT80b202_Tuesday" and as
label "Tuesday".

OK Im scanned the paperUI sources.
in /org.eclipse.smarthome.ui.paper/web-src/js/controllers/controller.things.view.js
in line 79: $scope.linkChannel = function(channelID, event, preSelect) {

In this function suggestedLabel is taken from the channeltype instead from the channel.
And the result of getItemNameSuggestion is also from channelType.
