I would like to use values provided from sliders in an Input Control block in a gauge condition expression.
I’m storing the value of the slide using a workflow. I’ve confirmed the values are being updated in the device attributes when the workflow is triggered.
My goal is to use the sliders to allow adjustment of the gauge contitions…
Hi @Monty_Wilsher and welcome to the Losant forums!
Gauge Blocks can only query a single attribute across one or more devices. While you can use the Data Transformation section to modify this value, you’re unable to query a separate value for comparison.
You could do the comparison from within the workflow that’s being triggered by your Input Controls Block, save it as a separate attribute value (using a Device: Update Node), and then query that value in an Indicator Block positioned on the dashboard next to the Gauge Block. A few simple examples:
Please let us know if this works for your use-case. And once again, thanks for joining us on the Losant forums!
Thanks, I was able to implement this quickly.
This works, but it would be great to be able to query a second attribute in the Gauge block.
