Resizable graph object with link in PRTG maps?



Is there any way to add 'custom' graph formats in the graph selection tab in 'add map object'?

Reason I ask is, I want to build a map that has full-size/resizable graphs but ALSO has a link to the object itself. The only graph available that also has a link to the object itself is not resizable - it's very very small and the legend is a pop-up when you mouse over the graph.

Right now I'm building maps with a large resized graph and then a second 'duplicate' object that has a link to that object so if I see something in the map I want more detail on I have something to click on! It's very tedious to build....

Thanks, Tim

Dear Tim,

using "HTML-Before" and "HTML-After" you can easily build links into map-objects that don't have those by default. Have you tried that?

Best Regards.

Thanks for the reply - yes, I had considered that but it's at least as tedious as using two separate objects for the same sensor (one for the graph & one for the link), since I need to find the URL for each sensor I want to do that for and paste it into the html fields.

I'd basically like to see a single unified object that has the status & a link to the sensor, along with a resizable graph of the sensor (ie, like the last batch of graphs in the selection screen but resizable). Or even a graph that just links to the sensor when you click it (like in many other screens in prtg).

Thanks, Tim
