I’ve seen a couple of posts about trying to add multi-line text to a dashboard but there seems to be nothing conclusive. I have a list of connection details (formatted with
or \n) that are obtained via an Influx query, that I want to display - as a list - not as a single line of text.
I’ve tried using Variables which work well as I can display the returned text in the text Panel as HTML.
However… the biggest problem with that is that the variable is only updated when the page is loaded or on time range change - but not when the queries on the page are refreshed, which seems really odd?
How else can I ensure that my connection values are being dynamically displayed? I’ve tried a table panel but it a) also displays a time value associated with the value which I don’t want and b) doesn’t seem to pay any attention to either ‘\n’ or ‘
’ embedded in the string. Is there some other way?
