  • Nice! Thanks for going into such detail!

    Iceweasel is what we were testing for the Kiosk ES, and what we found to have issues with the drop down menus in the old UI. Out of curiousity, do you experience that too or might they have updated it with a fix since I was testing?


  • @phildunlap I haven't been far enough into it to publish a dashboard with dropdowns. I am using a simple heads up display for onsite personnel. I am starting on the facility manager's home screen now so I might have some insight later next week. Can you describe the issue?
    ...menu lists weren't populating? selectively populating? wouldn't populate fully?
    ....wouldn't trigger on hover/mouseover?mousedown?

    I will watch for it if you can describe it.


  • All the old pages had the issue with every drop down. So, on /watch_list.shtm you couldn't pull down the list of watchlists. On /data_sources.shtm you couldn't pull down the list of possible data source types to add.

    The element would select, so the up and down keys worked, but it wouldn't work as a select type element with the options in a visible list. It would have only affected pages that use Dojo select fields I think, but that's most of the old pages.


  • OK. I understand now. The pages you're referring to are the legacy Mango interface... the dropdowns on those pages. If I understand correctly, these are the pages generated by .jsp and use Dojo as they are pre-AngJS..

    No problems at all.. pages respond well, drop downs populate quickly, allow selection and redirect based on selection.

    For historical reference, I am using:

    ii  lightdm                               1.10.3-3
    ii  lightdm-gtk-greeter                   1.8.5-2
    ii  task-desktop                          3.31+deb8u1
    ii  task-xfce-desktop                     3.31+deb8u1 
    ii  tasksel                               3.31+deb8u1 
    ii  tasksel-data                          3.31+deb8u1 
    ii  xfce4                                 4.10.1       all
    ii  iceweasel                             52.2.0esr-1~ all 
    

    I omitted a bulk of the output from

    dpkg-query -l

    but I am happy to send it.


  • Thanks :D


  • I have found two issues with the dashboard designer that are pretty minor. CSS fixes are likely the solution.

    1. When assigning the XID to a point source for any html object the dropdown list is too narrow to display usable name data. I have to cut and paste from a second screen.

    2. while designing in dashboard the visual port for graphical design window doesn't have a horiz scroll bar.

    Which css file assigns these features and I will modify them? is there an overrides folder for it?

    Thanks for reporting these issues. If you post any further issues with the new UI and dashboard designer to https://forum.infiniteautomation.com/category/21/mango-api-and-dashboards I will have a greater chance of seeing them.

    I will definitely make the data point XID field wider.

    You should see a horizontal scrollbar, which browser are you using?

    edit. You can upload/create your own stylesheet on the UI Settings page which you can use to override styles on the dashboard designer.


  • @Jared-Wiltshire My apologies. I thought I was continuing a discussion with Phil concerning the new UI. I will, of course, post in the appropriate place in the future. Thank you.

    BTW, the new interface is amazing. I never thought I would be a fan of angularjs but you have sold me.

    I also found the scroll bar after adjusting my resolution. My hardware and not the software.


  • Hi...i am a new user here. As per my knowledge by default the MangoES HDMI port should just display the command line.On the IP issue can you tell me how you have tried to set the IP? Did you do this via the MangoES configuration section on the system setting page?

  • Hi CoraDias, welcome to the forum!

    It's not ideal to resurrect threads if it's not really related to the thread.

    Yes the MangoES will display the command line over the HDMI port. I believe this thread involved a kiosk type display, so he installed other packages on his ES.

    What IP issue was in this thread?
