With icons, the user can create very personalized widgets for their applications, and the result can look like the ones shown below, but the possibilities are endless.
Users can add up to 9 variables in this widget, and each variable will show its last value.
Creating your own
To add it to your dashboard, choose the Icon widget from the list and customize it to your preference. You can edit it by using the options located on the right side of the widget.
This widget works for both dashboards, Normal and Blueprint.
1. 'Data From' Field
This field allows you to set the device and variable that will be used in this widget.
Click on the cog icon to edit specific options for this variable, such as formulas, color, and more. Click on the close icon to remove this variable from the widget's data.
This field is dependent on the type of dashboard you are using; the difference is explained below.
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.
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.
The widget changes its content based on two types of conditions, Icon conditions and Color conditions, based on variable data. If it satisfies any condition set, then it will change the color of the content.
The priority order between conditions is top to bottom. A condition in the top row will always have priority over a condition in the bottom row.
It is possible to show your own images in the widget, by adding their own icon URL.
