Status in lcd widget

Hi there I have lcd widget in blynk and in node red I use status node for checking the status of device , So how can the LCD widget give me the value of that status node.

I used this but it is not working.


It is not showing in my blynk app

I’ve never used the Status node - in fact I’ve never even noticed it before - but the help file says this:

“This node does not produce a payload”

which I assume is why you’re having an issue with this. I can see the logic in what you’re trying to achieve, and it seems like a good idea. I’ll do a bit of digging to see if I can come up with anything else.

UPDATE
Well, that “node does not produce a payload” information was a bit confusing (at least for me). I guess it means that there is no msg.payload element, but there is certainly a msg.status which can be used in the way you want.

The problem is that the msg.status.text is simply “connected” so if you change your if statement to this it will work:

if (msg.status.text == "connected")

I’m not getting output on my blynk app LCD.

What does your function look like now, and what are you seeing on the debug node?
