Gauge Widget

The simple gauge is a visual gauge representing that of which would be found on machinery, being able to for example show pressure effectively at a glance, or revolutions per minute. While the gauge does technically support multiple inputs at once it is not recommended as it becomes very hard to understand what the gauge shows as each needle overlaps, not to mention that depending on data type the input may have wildly different values making it inconvenient to effectively have a max & min value. Simple gauge has 4 inputs not counting line input.




1st input is a title for the widget, this input is universal with all widgets.

2nd is maximum value which defines how high goes, the minimum value is always at 0 but max value defines the range above, so for example, 0-100 or 0-1000. M


Maximum value at 100 

 


Maximum value at 1000


3rd input is gauge low range in percent, this determines what section of the gauge is green and how much is blue.


Gauge with low range set at 30% 

 


Gauge with low range set at 15% 

 


Gauge with low range set at 70% 

 


4th is the high range, it is the opposite to the low range, it determines the size of the red section. It works opposite that of the low range when typing in the size, with the low range the user sets the percentage where it stops, with 30% being 30%, with the high range it is reversed, with 70% typed in being 30% coverage from the maximumvalue.

Those are all the inputs and how to use them, the line input only has name selection so it should not be covered in depth but it will quickly be shown how the name appears.



Line input name set as original samplepoint name “SystemTemperature”

Line input name set as “SysTemp”


Both names have same sample input but can have their name changed regardless.
