A new Visualization type, called Bullet Chart, was first included in edgeSuite v3.5. It has many similarities to the Linear Gauge Visualization. For more information on the Bullet Chart Visualization, see Bullet Chart.
The following documentation is for the updated Gauge Visualization in edgeSuite v3.5 and higher. If you are using an edgeSuite version prior to v3.5, see Legacy Gauge Visualization.
Thresholds and Comparative Values are no longer supported.
Specifically, the Linear Gauge Visualization from a pre-v3.5 system is not compatible with the current Linear Horizontal Gauge. Any older Liner Gauge Visualization should be reviewed when you are upgrading to v3.5 or higher. It might have to be manually converted to a Bullet Chart Visualization.
This section contains details on how to configure the Gauge Visualization in edgeSuite v3.5 or higher.
The Gauge Visualization displays one or more values, along with any number of attributes/icons.
The Gauge Visualization configuration is broken out into five steps:
A symbolic name used to represent this Visualization. This is the name that will show up in choosers when adding a Visualization to a page.
The type of gauge. Choices are:
The type of layout. Choices are:
Number of pixels between the list item and its border.
Number of pixels between list items. Not applicable in vertical list orientation.
Determines width of each list item in flow or horizontal list orientation.
Determines whether a border will appear for each item in a flow or horizontal list orientation.
Determines the size of the arc gauge.
Determines the distance in pixels between the outer edge of the chart (Gauge Size) and the content. The numbers designate top, right, bottom, and left respectively. If the start or end point label is cut off, consider adding a little padding. For example 0,10,10,5.
Determines the length of the linear gauge.
Determines the width of each linear gauge – combine width of axis label and the bar.
This property is available with “Flow” list orientation. It works in conjunction with list item width, and determines whether list items should grow to fill any remaining space. This option basically turns the list item width property into a Min-Width property.
Determines the background color of each item.
This step configures the attributes to display as part of each list item. It also defines the renderer to use when presenting the values for the specified attributes.
Determines the record values that will appear in each list item.
This property determines whether a label will appear next to a value within a list item.
Label acts as a description for values that appear in a list. The Label defaults to the Attribute Name, but can be overwritten with something better optimized for display.
Determines the renderer to use with the associated attribute. The value renderer determines how record values for each attribute are presented. The available renderers will vary based on the data type of the each attribute.
See “Renderers” for more information.
Determines how labels will appear inside list items. The label formatter is a global setting, and will be used for all labels within the List.
Determines the color of labels. See Color Picker
Determines the font size of labels.
Determines the font style of labels.
Step 3: Options
The options properties displayed depend on the type of gauge selected.
Configure what the minimum value will be shown on the axis of the chart.
Configure what the maximum value will be shown on the axis of the chart.
By default all non-icon and gauge items will be part of inline content, which property controls how these items are aligned within its container.
Determines the thickness of the Arc. The four options are:
Determines where the gauge value starts
Determines where the gauge value ends
The following setting will be shown if there is only one Gauge renderer, it is not rendered as part of inline content, and list orientation is vertical. This is to support the upgrade of pre-3.5 version of Linear Gauge. User should consider convert this to a Bullet Chart or adjust the chart’s setting to avoid using legacy rendering which will be discontinued in the near future.
Determines whether to show a comparative measure on the linear gauge, indicated by a vertical line.
Deprecated. The width of the label and value column.
This step configures how the gauge items are sorted.
Select an attribute from the underlying dataset, whose values will be used to determine the sort.
Controls how the values will be sorted.
