This page contains details on how to configure the Gauge Visualization in edgeSuite v3.4.
The Gauge Visualization displays a value, along with threshold information. The threshold information describes whether the value is good or bad.
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:
Number of pixels between the gauge and its border.
Number of pixels between gauges.
Determines whether a border will appear for radial gauges
The label properties displayed depend on the type of gauge selected.
This Attribute will be depicted on the gauge’s “dial”. The Value Label is a text representation of what is shown on the gauge.
This determines whether label styles are static, or derived based on values in the data set.
Determines whether decimal values should be rounded when displayed.
A Boolean that determines whether a separator is used when displaying numbers greater than 1,000.
Determines how negative numbers are displayed.
Allows a prefix to be used with a number. This is used to convey units of measure. The example below shows currency as a prefix.
Allows a suffix to be used with a number. This is used to convey units of measure. The example below shows weight as a suffix.
The Gauge Label describes the gauge to the user. It will appear beneath the gauge for an Arc type and above the Value Label for a Linear type. In the case where multiple gauges are displayed, the Primary Label helps the user to understand the difference between one gauge and another.
The Label Field describes the gauge value to the user. Where multiple gauges are displayed, the Gauge Label differentiates one gauge and another.
The gauge label will appear:
This determines whether Label Field styles are static, or derived based on values in the data set.
The threshold properties can affect the color of a gauge. They are based on the Value Attribute.
The default color is used for values that exceed the maximum defined threshold, or for all values if the gauge color is configured to only use the default threshold color.
Only applicable with Linear gauge Type. This option determines how saturated the background colors on a linear gauge will be.
The color to use for the gauge when the threshold rule is true.
The options properties displayed depend on the type of gauge selected.
Determines the size of the arc gauge.
Determines the thickness of the Arc. The four options are:
Determines where the gauge value starts
Determines where the gauge value ends
Determines the height of the linear gauge.
Determines whether to show a comparative measure on the linear gauge, indicated by a vertical line.
The attribute used to plot the comparative measure.
Determines the color of the vertical line used to indicate the comparative value.
