Show different Icons according to status (Error, Warning, Normal) in MAP



I find there are icons listed at right side of "MAP designer" and I want to use some of them in the MAP. I know to match the icon to a sensor but I don't know how to switch icons according status of that sensor. Can I do that?

Hope someone can help. Thanks.

I'm afraid that it's not possible to have the icon for a map object change to a completely different icon based on status, the ability to have them dynamically change based on this just isn't possible.

If you just wanted to have the color change you can try following the guide here and you may be able to adapt this to changing the icon to a different icon completely but this is something you would need to develop on your own.

Thanks for your reply. I think maybe we can develop our own.
