Decimal limit not being applied

Hi everyone, I have a number widget showing rainfall, which can have a large number of decimals. I have selected the widget to only show 1 decimal, but it doesn’t work. Screenshot below.
Any thoughts?

Hi @sevils,

Can you check if you are sending the data as number or as string?
I’m waiting for your reply. :slight_smile:

Hi @alinetusi, yes it’s coming in as a string. See analysis snippet below.
It seems to work ok with blueprint dashboard, but not a normal…?

Hi @sevils,

The Display widget respect the type of data.
This means that it will respect the data separator, in this case, the data type is number.
e.g.

[
{
“variable”: “temperature”,
“value”: 71.999999
}
]

If you send data as a string, it won’t respect the separator.

71.99999 = number
“71.99999”= string

To fix it, I suggest you change the data type to number.

Ok, thanks @alinetusi I’ll make the change and check the result. Interesting that it works ok for the blueprint dashboard though…

Works fine, thank you!
