Feature request: "Show device status" checkbox for power meters

MaxVonEvil 6 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated 6 months ago 1

Hi Terry & Alex,

I have a small item which I'd hope you'd consider including in the next update (presuming universal text tiles aren't around the corner just yet)


As of today we have the "Show device status" in the footer section for switch-type tiles and others.

My ask is to have the same option on powermeter-type tiles

Why? Because power meters are the only tile which currently supports showing an integer, which I can fudge backstage

What do I need that for?

So I created a webcore piston, which among other things queries the page count of my printer via it's built in web interface. In the ST IDE I created a virtual power meter, which I'm displaying in AT with the caption "Page count". Unfortunately one can't turn off the footer text/device status for a power meter, so underneath the page count it reads "power (w)", which irks my persnickety sense of order in the cosmos.. :)

Hope this makes sense.

And this is what it looks like as of now
