Can you round the Image Direction Number in the Watermark (S123)?

My watermark is working great using the bind::esri:parameters column using this statement: bottomRightWatermark="Photographed on: @[datetime:d MMM yyyy HH:mm] \n At: @[latitude longitude] \n Direction in Degrees: @[direction]&color=yellow&outlineColor=black&haloColor=white&size=32&bold=true&margin=10".  However, the photo direction shows way too many numbers after the decimal point.  Is there a simple way to round this number directly in the bind::esri:parameters column statement? 


Thank you!

Hi Amy,

Unfortunately, it is not currently possible to round the @[direction] value being applied in the watermark, it is displayed as per the number of decimals returned from the device sensor. This would require additional development work to enable parameters, such as the number of decimal places, to be added into the @[direction] syntax.

I really appreciate your response and I'm glad I asked it so that I didn't spend too much time trying to see if I had the ability to change the display of the decimal value via the syntax in Connect. I will submit an enhancement request with ESRI Support.  Thank you so much!
