I would like to understand how canvas is used, where it's limitations are and if it suits to my usecases.
I tried to play with it a bit, but I did not get familiar with it yet.
- On all demos I saw, it always showed the most recent data. Is it possible to select a time range like in the classical dashboards?
- If I use the table element, can I do some value based formatting? e.g. color the line red if field status is error, color it green if it is ok?
- Can I do some post calculation in the table element? If I have two timestamps per line in a table. Can I calculate the difference and show it?
- Is it possible to use filters like in the normal dashboards? Filtering by clicking on fields, select a time span in histogram by mouse interaction?
My hope is, that I can create some dashboards (especially with tables and line diagrams) where I can color or change images based on the value of some fields.
