Graphical View - using sensor data in HTML component


  • Hello,

    I am currently assembling a system where a variety of sensors are connected to mango. I was wondering if using the HTML component, there is a way to insert data coming from a point data source.

    For example, I have a sensor that gives color data in R, G, B format, and I would like to be able to write HTML where the background of a table is the same color as what the sensor is picking up.

    To do this I would need to be able to write inside the HTML:

    
    <table bgcolor="rgb(RED_DATA_POINT, BLUE_DATA_POINT, GREEN_DATA_POINT)" border="1"><tr>
    <td>Sensor Color</td>
    </tr></table>
    
    

    Any ideas would be appreciated. Basically I would like to extract the data from data points and use them in a varieity of ways in the graphical views.

    Thanks in advance.


  • You have to use Server Script and return HTML formatted code.

  • Thanks, this is what I was looking for.

    Is it possible to get the data/value of more than one point in a single script?


  • Answered my own question by using a meta data source.
