      My old Dell notebook has a wifi module: “Dell Wireless 1703 802.11b|g|n [2.4GHz]”
      and DesktopInfo can’t display it normally (in one row, not three).

      Need help.

      The pipe symbol ‘|’ is used by DTI to denote a new line in the display template. There’s an undocumented common option you can use to disable that for a single item called multirow.

      comment = text:this|is|multirow, multirow:0

      Notebook has two network interfaces: lan and wifi.
      My config line:

      NETWORKINTERFACES=interval:30,operstatus:1,iftype:6 23 71,row-text:%2,display:%3|%8/%10\, %24[1.0B]Bps

      How to use your advice?

      hrm…. It doesn’t work well in that case. Need to find a way to transform the raw data before it gets to the display.

      Regular expressions here we come…..

      Maybe simply perform the pre-formatting of variables? (replace “|” with “/”, for example).

        that’s the plan… regular expressions is how we’ll do it.
