I have a suggestion, when i have mutliple toggles in a dashboard, all linked to the same feed, when i use a toggle all others return to default state, is there any way you could add a functionality wherein it retains it state irrespective of other toggles?

also pls add a width functionality to the toggle widget, all the text seem to be wierdly outa frame(check attachment),

im using this for my smarthome project and its really annoying cz i cannot see which toggles are on/off cz all of em return to default state.......

Could anyone at Adafruit IO pls pls pls pls help me??????

and before u say it,.........no i cant have multiple feeds, its wayy too much clutter and also im using ifttt which doesnt allow so many feeds

At this time, we would suggest putting just ON/OFF or something else similarly small in a toggle block text section so it looks better. The title of the feed, and the title of the block (they can be different, depending on what you need) are better used as descriptors for what the feed represents. We will look into dynamically resizing text, but it's fairly low on our list as of this moment.

Also, we do have an issue filed to support state of toggle blocks in the manner you are using them, but do not have a date we can provide when we'll add the feature. Using a feed per toggle switch is currently the recommended approach. Another approach would be using Momentary Buttons, or even just text input, with either of those you could monitor the state in the stream block.

I would like it if dashboard elements (like the time series plotter and gauges) supported simple math operations to handle things like feed unit conversions.

is there any way to white lable the Adafruit data feed and give it to my customers based on login criteria.
there are some websites doing that. and if we are a startup into IoT, who is in the stage of gathering customers, would love to use this feature.

Is there a technical reason why line charts are limited to 5 feeds? I can understand that things will start to get crowded with more than this, but unless there is some technical reason for the limitation, why not allow more, and let people decide for themselves when it's too crowded?

Hi there,

This is more of a product idea not a software one (sorry I didn't see a forum for this) - Adafruit has a bunch of smaller-sized LCD products, but what do you think of a transparent LCD panel? IMO there are many potential use cases from signage, product marketing at stores (big and small) to even computer cases (e.g. I'm referencing the Snowblind case's side panel if you would like to look it up).

It's hard for the average consumer (even if they're technical) to DIY it because not every one knows how to take apart a monitor, strip/solder, wire LEDs, etc.

I think the PC builder community alone would drive a lot of business for this (including me - hence the product suggestion). I don't have the immediate skills, time, or money (since you have to buy all the tools too) to build even a "dumb" screen (i.e. connected to the computer via HDMI as a 2nd screen essentially). It would be great to buy it from somewhere like Adafruit due to your proven quality of work and expertise. I looked up a bunch of vendors but they're either vendors on Alibaba selling bulk from China, or enterprise sellers in the USA focused on $10k+ type of large OLED screens. In my experience, the most popular side cases have around a 19inch side panel.

Anyways, just my 2 cents!

Be well,
-A

Two suggestions for the NC pin on the ESP32 feather. First suggestion is to connect it to the ESP32 GPIO0 so the the ESP32 can output MCLK when using I2S. The second suggestion is to connect it to the #SUSPEND pin from the CP2104. Being able to detect when my computer is asleep or awake is convenient.
