What are all the parameters and options for map objects?



I want to create my own custom map objects, and while the existing documentation and built-in samples are helpful, they are far from complete. For example, when looking at a graph object, there is code that looks like this:

<div class="sensorgraphs"> <#selectionlist id="<@objectid>" content="sensorgraphs" width="336" height="100" graphid="1" filter_tags="<@tagfilterstring>" styling='refreshable=false' > </div>

What is filter_tags? What is styling? What is a selectionlist? I would love to see more thorough documentation about all these options for all different map object types, so we can built fully customizable objects and know how to control them. The list of articles in the KB (https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61263-where-can-i-find-custom-map-objects-and-other-map-customizations) only showcases a few options with little to no discussion of what they mean.

Thank you for your post.

Unfortunately, we can not provide any support for custom map objects. Fot the parts that you have listed, I can only tell you that the "filter_tags="<@tagfilterstring>"" basically replaces the placeholder "<@tagfilterstring>" with the tag that is entered in the device/sensor. Perhaps, some other users are more familiar with this, and can provide more information.

Kind regards,

I understand you can't provide support on custom objects, but documentation would be really nice so that we can support ourselves. Just like you would document any API, I think map objects should have documentation as well. Thanks
