The Value component accepts a query and displays a formatted value inline in text.

By default, Value will display the value from the first row of the first column of the referenced data.

<Value data={query_name} /> <!-- First row from the first column -->

Specifying Rows and Columns

Optionally supply a column and/or a row argument to display other values from data.

Row index

row is zero-indexed, so row=0 displays the first row.

<!-- Show the **7th row** from column_name -->




The most recent month of data began <Value data={monthly_orders} />,
when there were <Value data={monthly_orders} column=orders/> orders.
