Web dashboard widgets don't resize with window resize

What dashboard are you using? (Web, iOS, Android)

Web

What OS? (Jessie, Wheezy)

What Model Pi?

Please describe the bug / issue. Attaching any relevant screenshots would be very helpful!
Widgets created in the web dashboard don’t resize with a screen resize. The stock widgets do. There is also no way to change the widget size, for instance to match the stock widget.

Whoops, whrong screenshot included, hopefully this will be the correct one

Also just noticed that the Value widget for temperature on the ios app displays a rounded down 20 when actual value is 22.7

Hi again @g0wie,

What was your expectation for the squeezed widgets? That they would resize to the the widgets of above? (CPU, RAM). Resizing the screen will inevitably shrink the size of the widgets, and so the text will need to be cut off. The stock widgets have larger real estate so when they shrink, no text cuts off.

However, we will be releasing ability to manually resize widgets soon. This would allow you to expand the size of the smaller widgets so they don’t appear cut off :slight_smile:

Let us look into the iOS app bug, thanks for letting us know!

Hello Benny,
Yes, I would have expected the widget on the web dash board to be the same size as the stock widgets. The ability to resize them would be good, but not so necessary if they are bigger to start with. On the ios apps they are already the same size as the stock widgets, and you can also move their position.
With reference to the temperature display in the ios apps, I have just been comparing the ipad and iphone apps. It is only the iphone app that is giving the rounded display with no decimalpoint. The ipad app appears to be ok, but only displays to one decimal point, whereas the web display is showing to two demimal points. so there is come inconsistency between the platforms.
I’m sure things will all settle down eventually and I appreciate the amount of effort that has to be put in to develop a platform like this. I really like what I have seen so far, and its really a breeze to add something like the temperature sensor.
Keep up the good work, and I’ll keep you updated on anything I find.
Regards,
Phil, g0wie
