Is there a way to turn off the auto scaling in gadgets if i want to use certain symbols? For instance the [%] symbol. I am already scaling in the strategy. To have to scale for this symbol in particular is annoying especially when I want to use the same tag in a trend… now the trend is getting a value of .oo1 so the value gadget can read 1%. Annoying…
You can also use the Text Area gadget, shown at the bottom of these three options here:
Here’s a few other notes on text/etc from an older post:
One UI side-note and a pet peeve of mine: do not use that top one (Text Box) for a value that can’t be changed. For example, someone added a value onto a page in our own internal Opto 22 groov pages for “Outside Temperature” but they added it as a Text Box, implying one could type a new number in there that might be more to there liking.
Are there other special characters that will do something?
Nothing that looks useful. There are some locale-dependent things for stuff like making sure you’re using the right decimal separator and showing local currency symbols, but only build for the US locale, so it won’t take effect.
