Cause

XBuilder Values Pages will read and display raw data from a variety of sources. It can be formatted in a graphics page or a third party interface to be displayed in any desired format, however, a Values Page is a simple drag-and-drop configuration. To alter the display, values must be routed through Signal objects in XBuilder.
