how to realtime update gauges with url

Recommended Posts

I've got 6 gauges that I'm trying to realtime update using the "dataStreamUrl" method and it doesn't seem to work with dial ID's despite instructions to the contrary. I have a php page that outputs the following string of data that I want to use to update 6 gauges.  The page outputs the following string:


According to the documentation I should be able to set "id": "pvvolt" in the dial section that it should pick out the 18.33 value from the string and populate it.  But it doesn.  it only works if I change &pvvolt= to &value=  (and hide the rest of the string).  

is it possible to update several gauges from 1 output string or am I going about this wrong?  

the code from my test page is below this line.  the "id": "pvvolt"  is in the correct location  so I don't know why it doesn't behave.  help?
