Connection line color on static icons in maps




I am trying to create a map with a switch, and important eth-ports. the problem is stat the custom icon has a sensor info area that is approx 140px wide. As a result, the map is getting huge, since each eth-port takes 140x100 px. So i tried to change the sensor icon to icon from "Default icons B". The sensor info area went away, but the problem now is that if that sensor (eth-port) goes down, the connection line is still green.

So my objective is really: Remove/compress the huge sensor info area AND get a dynamic color (red/orange/yellow/green) on the connection line. Is this possible?

Dear sponsen

In principle, you could try to create a copy a map object HTM file and edit that copy to your liking. However, we only document the basic approach, we don't offer detailed descriptions how map objects are working. You might still want to have a look here.

Resizing certain elements could also imply modifications of a CSS file. Please note that during the development of new PRTG versions, the structure of the CSS used could change at any time. If possible, please check if you can layout a map using the default elements.
