Needs formatting functions

There needs to be functionality to allow custom formatting on the outputs before they are drawn on the screen. For example, controlling the # of decimal places in the power output so it shows 41watts instead of 41.17, and formatting the network speed so it's not some huge stupid number. Time and date, too. Basically, any output should be able to go through either a VBSscript or Python script to format the output.

Hell, using either of those would also allow you to choose pulling in data from some other unrelated thing like a websocket server to feed data into the system.

Decimal places can be configured in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring.  The rest is not supported yet.

The decimal places in the preferences is a blunt instrument; depending on the source I might want some more fine-grained info (example: cpu) or not (example: battery backup wattage). Being able to run the output through a specific item's formatting would open up several doors - for example, GOoverlay's product does this and a few more things.

I don't know if they need to go as far as integrating with a scripting language.  Just the ability to add a string format (ala printf like "%4.2f", "%'d", or "%05d") to any numeric output would be a great thing. It would likely require being able to set the locale though, to get the formatting right for everyone.  You could easily create a Regular Expression to only allow a specific subset of printf format strings (as some of them might break things).

Heck, just being able to put commas and control the number of decimal places would be terrific, even if these were just fields.
