Input_select in Lovelace: display value only

I’d like to add an element to an entities card that displays only the current value of an input_select, rather than a drop-down to allow a user to change the value. How is that done?

Map the input_select state into a Template Sensor.

Thanks–but I clearly have the syntax wrong, because the entity in the card just displays “input_select.thing”:

  - platform: template
        friendly_name: "Thing"
        entity_picture_template: local/thing.jpg
        unique_id: home_status_thing
        value_template: input_select.thing

The picture and the friendly name work, though, so I’m close…

value_template: "{{ states('input_select.thing') }}"

Just like in the documentation …

That works… thanks.
