Using MQTT

Here, to update data on HTML Tile Widget user can publish JSON object on given testData MQTT topic. No need to provide <account_id> while providing the MQTT topic. The JSON object will be as below.

// Example 

    "key1":"Hello World !!!",
    "key2":"My name is John"

// Here, 'key1' and 'key2' are the keys defined for HTML Tile widget.

Using Action

Here, to update the data on HTML Tile widget, output of the action should contain JSON object as given in above example. User can also update the widget either onLoad or periodically by providing refresh interval.

Event Handling

HTML Tile widget does not support any event.


If we write CSS code for widget as:

.tile{ background-color: red; color: white;}
.tile2{ background-color: blue; color: white;}

and write HTML Code for widget as:

<div class="tile">{key1}</div>
<div class="tile2">{key2}</div>

and set source type for widget as MQTT and topic configured is 'data'. And if we publish following JSON Object over 'data' topic then HTML Widget will look as shown in image.

// Data over configured MQTT Topic

    "key1":"Hello World !!!", 
    "key2":"My name is John"
