lookup cannot display float values



I want to display float values in a neutral grey color. The values are transmitted from a advanced custom sensor via XML. On the web page the flaot values are either displayed in green color or if I use a lookup file the values are displayed grey but as integer instead of float. I need both.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <ValueLookup id="value.statenone" desiredValue="1" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="PaeValueLookup.xsd">
      <Range state="None" from="-99999999" to="99999999"></Range>

Hello Timo,

lookups only work with integer values. This is because their are conceived to map individual status codes.

Float values can be only used in limit ranges (upper/lower error/warning limits).
