Animate Wind Vane Direction


I am new to Tago. I have a data feed from a wind vane. How do I animate the compass pointer on the dashboard with respect to this data feed?

Thank you

Hi Alan, welcome to the community!
Although there is not a specific Compass widget (yet), you may want to try the Icon or the Image widgets to get similar effect. If you you the Image, you can add several images with indication for N, S, NE, NW,… and setup a condition to use each one. Of course, the granularity will not be great, but hopefully it helps you by now.
Here is the link for the documentation:

  • select the Dynamic Image option.

Let me know if that worked for you.

Hi @redland

You can create your own widget totally customized, I picked some documents that will help you with that:

Hi @phil.gutierre ,

I tried your suggestion and it works, but to be more accurate I needed to add more Pictures frames, but the widget doesn’t let me add more. It has a limit. For now what I did is, using the Dial widget and is doing the job. It would be nice if you add an option to show like an arrow on the end of the dial to show the degrees. something like this example. Is not that perfect, but I think you can get the idea.
Thank You!

hey @redland, thank you for the suggestion!

I’ll talk to our front-end team to see if we can add some sort of arrow in the future.

I’m glad the dial widget is working for now! if you really want the arrow for extra accuracy, the way to go would be to build your own custom widget via those tutorial links that I’ve sent you.
