Dynamic text in panel

#1

I'm taking little steps in creating a custom node, although I am a little familiar with javascript, not so much with node.js.

I am trying to display dynamic data in the panel based on the pulldown selection.

As there is too much property information to put in the help screen (many items in the pulldown), I want to show this dynamically.

Does anyone have some guidance on the best approach to accomplish this ?

Take a look at node-red-contrib-uibuilder - in the v2 branch.

Thanks, i did. Then I see you use jquery (?) and wonder where you included it, or is this readily available in NR ?

Yes, Node-RED provides jQuery for you.

Not only is jQuery included in the admin ui, jQueryUI and Bootstrap v3(?) are also included.

Nodes shouldn't use Bootstrap features. It isn't there for nodes to use and we will eventually get rid of it.

OK, fair enough.
