Customising CCGX main page?

Has anybody every customised the main page of their CCGX? From reading a few articles, it appears that it is possible (though people seem to customise the Venus GX). Any particular articles that walk through the steps/tips? I have a (Linux) software background, so it should be doable for me.

Specifically, most of the screen real estate is being wasted, as this ship does not have an inverter, and thus the top two thirds of the screen are always blank. Ideally I would like to:

  • Expand the DC Power block to include a current figure.
  • Add a block for the engine alternator, and show current flow from it.
  • Display the AC current being fed from a generator.
  • Display the AC current from shore power.

Is there any mechanism to display current/voltage data from external sources on the CCGX?


Thanks,


Allan.

I think that this may get you started.

It’s more geared for the dashboard instead of the overview screen, but you will find the overview code in there as well.


Maybe this one is better suited to get you started;

I am about to customize my screens as well.

Good luck with yours!

What certainly is possible is to provide a custom bootup logo (which we've done so it shows our company logo instead that of Victron ;-) ), but that needs to be changed every time the firmware gets updated.

If your problem is mostly with design (and wasted screen real estate) - you are aware there is an alternate display design that does at least not appear to waste (as much) space?

I do agree however, that dashboards in the 21st century look more ... schwifty.

Hello Allan,

Did you find a way to set your main ccgx page the way you wanted to ?

Thanks your answer.

Skinable and more to configure would be very nice, e. G. more Data as AH

Sooo following that!

In my case I have two banks with each a BMV712, one 12v and one 48v - the 48v hooked to the Multiplus has the info but the 12v is only showing like yours as "DC power" and only Power figure. Somehow it should be easy to have a box with the 12v Bmv, no ? Ah well.
