Input Control Widget

Input Control Widget

The Input control allows users to submit values to variables through a form.


Editing the form

The Input control is a very dynamic widget, as you can customize its colors, layout, text, and even icons.

To edit a specific section of this widget, you must hover over the desired element and click it. Promptly, a new page will appear on the right side with all the editable options for the selected element.

This widget works for both dashboards, Normal and Blueprint.


1. Sections

Sections are the main structure of the form, and each section has its own fields.

It is possible to show a divider between sections, duplicate sections, remove the captions, and more.


2. Fields

Fields are associated with a variable and device using the Data From. Once the field is submitted, the data can be sent through the bucket.

It is possible to select an analysis for each field, and when this field is submitted, it will run the analysis

2.1. 'Data From' Field

This field allows you to set the device and variable that will be used in this widget.

This field is dependent on the type of dashboard you are using; the difference is explained below.
2.1.1 'Data From' for Normal Dashboards

From the option 'Data From' on the right menu, select one device from your list of devices and the variable that contains the data.

2.1.2 'Data From' for Blueprint Dashboards

From the option 'Data From' on the right menu, add the Blueprint device and input the name of the variable that contains the information.

When using a Blueprint dashboard, the field Variable will not list variables to be picked because it doesn't know the devices linked to your Blueprint Device.

3. Fields type

Input control has two types of fields: Switch and Text. Different from the Input Form, each field has a button to send data.

3.1 Switch

The switch type displays a simple button that changes the value of the variable to true or false

In this type of field, there is the possibility to modify the true and false text to anything you would like.

3.2 Text

A typical text input will be displayed, and the value will be anything that was typed into it
