Dashboards & Visualizations

How can I use the color input from the Single Value Visualization in my own modular viz?

I've seen this input in the Single Value visualization:
alt text
I would like to use it in my own visualization, but the documentation doesn't seem to cover that, all I see there are radio, text and color picker inputs. Anyone with any experience on this?

Hi @jeffland,

Unfortunately, the current custom visualization framework does not support dynamic formatter options. You can set it up to have a set number of ranges that get colors, but you can't make the number of ranges variable. For an example of a basic set up, see the horseshoe meter custom viz (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3166/). Dynamic formatter options are something we are looking at for the future.

Glad to hear some "official" thoughts on that, I appreciate your input.
I was wondering if maybe I could just use plain HTML and js in the format menu, but that seems like monkeypatching and I don't really want to go that way. It's comforting to know that the format menu will/might see some more features in the future.
