Quick Settings tile show

A decision block that shows an Quick Settings tile.

The fiber will pause until the tile is clicked and proceed through the YES path, or proceed through the NO path if no tile has been set up (see below), all tiles are busy or the tile was explicitly removed by the user.

Modifier flags (bitwise) for a clicked tile:

0x000080long pressed (Android 8+)
0x400000lock screen is showing (Android 7+)
0x800000device is in a secure state (Android 7+)

Long-clicking a tile on a “secure” lock screen, e.g. PIN or password, may request it to be unlocked.


Quick Settings tiles are supported on Android 6+ and CyanogenMod 12.1+. All flows can show a maximum of 6 tiles simultaneously.

A tile must be added before it can be used. Expand the status bar and tap the EDIT or “pen” button, then drag to add one or more of the Automate tiles.
