Display non-time series data

All;
Is there any way to display any non-time series data? When I saw that MySQL had been added as a data source, I had high hopes of using it to display data in a text box, but no, it can’t be done. If not, then definitely I would like to offer it up as a feature request. It seems to me that adding MySQL as a possible data source for text boxes would be a logical choice.

You can either query meta-data and use them in variables or use the table panel and show non-time series data directly.

Wow, this is really great. I can’t thank you enough.
