The Web Dashboard allows you to customize various format settings for numeric and date-time values.

Formatting Numeric Values

In the Format type field, select the required format type. To learn about format types that can be set, see Formatting Data.

Formatting Date-Time Values

To specify a format for date-time values, use the Format Type option in the Format section of the data item menu.

wdd-format-type-date-time

Note

Specific group intervals do not have format options. This means that corresponding values can only be presented in a single manner. The Format section is not displayed for such group intervals.

To learn about group interval format types, see Formatting Data.

Currency Formatting Specifics

The Web Dashboard allows you to specify currency formats for the current data item or for entire dashboard.

  • To set a data item currency format, open the data item menu and go to the Format section. Select Currency as a format type and specify the required culture using the Currency combo box.

    wdd-format-type-currency

    You can also specify the data item to use the client culture. For this, select the Use client system settings in the combo box.

  • To set the dashboard currency, open the dashboard menu and go to the Currency page. Here you can select the required currency from the list.

    You can also specify the dashboard to use the client culture. For this, select the Use client system settings item.

Note

The Web Dashboard allows end-users to specify a currency format for individual data items or for the entire dashboard. The main prerequisite is that a corresponding currency culture is installed on the web server where the Web Dashboard is deployed. If the specified culture is not available on the server side, the dashboard displays a neutral currency sign (ยค) for formatted values.
