Dashboard widget for displaying / changing device properties

I have defined some device properties and can edit them on the device panel left ribon.

On a custom dashboard I would like to display those properties and be able to change them. Most are text fields. How can this be accomplished?


Hello @digifish ,

I hope this note finds you well.

Unfortunately, there’s no native widget in Ubidots to display and change the device properties simultaneously. However, you can display the device properties by creating a device table widget or a variables table widget, click here to obtain more information. The configuration should look like this:

Another option to accomplish it is to create an HTML Canvas widget and code it to change the properties by making a PATCH request to the device endpoint and to display the properties, you could make a GET request and show it as you desired. To obtain more information about our API, you can click here.

Best Regards,
