They are the "Icon" block types. You can find them when creating a new block for your dashboard.

This is more of an enhancement to the line chart block,

1) No matter what a point is set to, as far as scale (0psi - 10 psi), the X axis minimum and maximum represent 0% - 100% of the configured scale, so dissimilar points should show up even if they are completely dissimilar such as temperature and pressure. For example, BME280 Temp indicates 70F, I set scale to 40F min & 100F max and Barometric Pressure indicates 29.5"Hg (I've done unit conversions in the python code) and I set 27" Hg Min and 32"Hg Max and I put them on same line chart block they should both be visible. They are both inside of their respective min and max scales.

2) Clicking on the temperature line puts temperature X-axis in focus and presents those units. Clicking on pressure line changes focus and X-axis scale changes to pressure units.
Across the board no matter what the point is, as long as it falls within the bounds of its configured X min and X max, it should be visible, even if every point is a dissimilar sensor or unit of measure.

I imagine a disk or graphic that is red or green according to the state (0/1? "true"/"false"? "t"/"f"?) of a feed. I want to see the hazard conditions in a room, and the only source of information should come from the room sensors, not the dashboard.

Isn't double insurance better?

Can you create a visible high and low limit line on the trend block. Similar to high and low alerts that you can set on the gauge block.
