Knob Examples and Reference


Default Knob

An example of a default Knob without any extra properties.

import dash
from dash.dependencies import Input, Output
import dash_daq as daq
import dash_html_components as html

app = dash.Dash(__name__)

app.layout = html.Div([
    daq.Knob(id='my-knob-1'),
    html.Div(id='knob-output-1')
])

@app.callback(Output('knob-output-1', 'children'), Input('my-knob-1', 'value'))
def update_output(value):
    return 'The knob value is {}.'.format(value)

if __name__ == '__main__':
    app.run_server(debug=True)

Size

Set the size(diameter) of the knob in pixels with size.

import dash_daq as daq

daq.Knob(
    size=140,
    value=3
)

Max

Set the maximum value of the knob using max.

import dash_daq as daq

daq.Knob(
    max=100,
    value=3
)

Color Ranges

Control color ranges with:

color={
    'ranges':{
        '<color>':[<value>,<value>],
        '<color>':[<value>,<value>],
        '<color>':[<value>,<value>]
        }
    }
import dash_daq as daq

daq.Knob(
  label="Color Ranges",
  value=3,
  color={"ranges":{"green":[0,5],"yellow":[5,9],"red":[9,10]}}
)

Color Gradient

Set up a color gradient with:

color={
    'gradient':True,
    'ranges':{
        '<color>':[<value>,<value>],
        '<color>':[<value>,<value>],
        '<color>':[<value>,<value>]
    }
}
import dash_daq as daq

daq.Knob(
  label="Gradient Ranges",
  value=7,
  color={"gradient":True,"ranges":{"green":[0,5],"yellow":[5,9],"red":[9,10]}}
)

Scale

Adjust the scale interval, label interval, and start of the scale with scale.

import dash_daq as daq

daq.Knob(
  label="Scale",
  value=7,
  max=18,
  scale={'start':0, 'labelInterval': 3, 'interval': 3}
)

id (string; optional):
The ID used to identify this compnent in Dash callbacks.

className (string; optional):
Class to apply to the root component element.

color (dict; optional):
Color configuration for the knob’s track.

color is a string | dict with keys:

disabled (boolean; optional):
If True, knob cannot be moved.

label (dict; optional):
Description to be displayed alongside the control. To control styling,
pass an object with label and style properties.

label is a string | dict with keys:

labelPosition (a value equal to: ‘top’ or ‘bottom’; default 'top'):
Where the knob label is positioned.

max (number; default 10):
The maximum value of the knob.

min (number; default 0):
The minimum value of the knob.

persisted_props (list of values equal to: ‘value’; default ['value']):
Properties whose user interactions will persist after refreshing the
component or the page. Since only value is allowed this prop can
normally be ignored.

persistence (boolean | string | number; optional):
Used to allow user interactions in this component to be persisted when
the component - or the page - is refreshed. If persisted is truthy
and hasn’t changed from its previous value, a value that the user
has changed while using the app will keep that change, as long as the
new value also matches what was given originally. Used in
conjunction with persistence_type.

persistence_type (a value equal to: ‘local’, ‘session’ or ‘memory’; default 'local'):
Where persisted user changes will be stored: memory: only kept in
memory, reset on page refresh. local: window.localStorage, data is
kept after the browser quit. session: window.sessionStorage, data is
cleared once the browser quit.

scale (dict; optional):
Configuration for the component scale.

scale is a dict with keys:

size (number; optional):
The size (diameter) of the knob in pixels.

style (dict; optional):
Style to apply to the root component element.

theme (dict; default light):
Theme configuration to be set by a ThemeProvider.

value (number; optional):
The value of knob.
