Text Formatting Tags


#1

I’d like to request support for Text Formatting Tags,

High Priority:
   [SIZE="5"]font size[/SIZE]
   [COLOR="#212227"]color[/COLOR]
   [B]bold[/B]
   [IMG]URL[/IMG]
Medium Priority:
   [LEFT]left[/LEFT]
   [CENTER]center[/CENTER]
   [RIGHT]right[/RIGHT]
Low Priority:
   [I]italic[/I]
   [U]underline[/U]

in conjunction with,

Terminal Widget (Priority)
Value Display
Labeled Value

Obviously, the specific tag format isn’t important.

I will submit a corresponding Blynk Roadmap Idea and ask that it be linked to this Community Topic.

I know the developers can do some clever stuff, but adding-in the ability to specify which named font should be used adds another level of complexity altogether.
Getting these fonts to display consistently, across the various makes/models and operating systems, would no doubt be a bit of a nightmare.

Agreed. I’ll take whatever I can get. With most text widgets, you can already specify font size, color and alignment (left / center / right) on the app side (albeit to an extent with a limited selection of sizes and colors). Let’s start with equivalent functionality on the hardware side, only on a per-character / per-line basis. I think bold would be reasonable.
