Is there any way to use iframe on the HMI webserver?

I am running a full version of Grafana on the local network on a raspberry pi and would like to embed a graph etc.

Hello john,

the ehmi provides the option to include support files.

As the ehmi is a canvas you can not interact with it via HTML. 
If you need Custom functions graphs, trending ,ect ect. use Support Files.

You can use a button to link to a html support file with any iframe ect you want to use.

kind regards,

Hi Oliver 

Thanks are there any template support files for a graph that interacts directly with the PLC? 

I need to trend a 4-20ma sensor on the eHMI

I am not experienced in html at all and would prefer not to install 3rd party hardware. I am aware of proficloud with grafana but some of our installations wont have internet connectivity
