More flexibility in sizing section block


#1

It would be great to have a bit more control over the size of the section block. The minimum height is quite large in some situations, especially how it renders on a phone. Sometimes I only want to place a very small amount of text or information, but the section block winds up taking almost as much space as a gauge and can look awkward.

It would also be nice to support markdown in the title of the header as well!

Thanks.


#2

Supporting Markdown in the section header should be doable. As for the height flexibility, we have some improvements related to dashboards - especially in mobile views - already in the pipeline, and that issue should be addressed there.


#3

I would probably suggest supporting markdown within all the block header text areas if that is possible, in addition to the section headers.


#4

Markdown is actually already supported in block titles, so you can easily add things like links!


#5

is it possible to add little images/icons in the headers?


#6

Yup! The headers don’t resize, they are a fixed height, so dropping larger images won’t look good. But icons or small images work great.


#7

That is awesome! thanks.

if I store icons on Losant Files, can I reference them like this ![image](https://files.onlosant.com/xxxxxxxxx/image.png) ?


#9

Yup, that should work without a problem.
