Displaying names, definitions and values of properties from Thingworx in a DataGrid in VuforiaStudio

Hello,

 

I want to display some information about all properties of a thing in a DataGrid in Vuforia Studio.

I need the name, the description (of definitions) and the value. It should look something like this:

 

NAME         VALUE        DESCRIPTION

name1         value1         descr1

name2         value2         descr2

...                ...                 ...

 

Displaying the names and descriptions in a DataGrid worked fine by using the service "GetPropertyDefinitions", drag and drop "All items" to the Data field and choose the columns I need. 

 

But I cannot find any solution to fill the column of values the same way. Do you have any idea?

Hi @Felix01 ,

 

The Repeater widget might work well in this case. 

 

The data grid might be able to do this assuming some code crafted the infotable to look like the above with the fields (name, value, description). Might be cool to have a thingworx service to return a datashape like that, then it would be easy to use in the data-grid.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi @Felix01 ,

One way to get the values of a Thing in a DataGrid widget is by using the GetPropertyValues service of ThingWorx. 

  • Add the GetPropertyValues service of a Thing in Studio Data Panel
  • Bind All Items of the service to the Data property of the Data Grid widget
  • Choose the required columns to be displayed
  • Use a button widget to invoke the GetPropertyValues service
    • Drag and drop the click event of the button on to the Get PropertyValues service as shown below:Screenshot_37.png

       

    • The values are displayed on the grid widget upon clicking the button

Re: Displaying names, definitions and values of properties from Thingworx in a DataGrid in VuforiaSt

Hi @ytella ,

 

I have already tried that, but it did not lead to the desired result, because I need the values in the row of each property of the Thing.

 

When I do it like your suggestion, the grids format looks like this:

 

property1     prop2      prop3    ...

value1         value2     value3   ...

 

But the way I need them to be displayed is like this, because I want to display the values of all properties of a Thing with some additional information from the descriptions of each property:

 

prop1     value1     decription1

prop2     value2     decription2

prop3     value3     decription3

...           ...

 

Is there any way to show all these information in one DataGrid in a format like this?
