Customizing a Gauge tool

Using the Gauge tool, you can create a colorful segmented bar which uses results from previous formulas. The results are displayed in a colored segmented bar in segments which you can fully customize.

  1. In the Element Label input field you can name your element.
  2. The Show Label slider controls whether the title will be shown or hidden.
  3. In the Range start input you write from where the whole gauge will start and in the Range end input field you can write where the whole gauge ends.
  4. In the Result to show tab you can choose which formula result from the previous elements you want to use for the gauge.
  5. In the Gauge scale input field, you can write which numbers will be displayed under the gauge. The way the numbers should be written are: from the lowest number to the highest one, dividing them by commas. The numbers should be between the minimum and maximum numbers chosen before.
  6. Click on the ➕ADD SEGMENT button to add a custom segment. There will be three segments created by default which you can fully customize.
  7. Click on any of the segments’ down arrows to open a drop down menu to customize each one of them. You can arrange the segment sequence in any way you like by clicking on the up arrow.
  8. In the Segment label input field you can name your segment.
  9. In the Segment start input field you can write from where the segment starts and in the Segment end you can write where the segment ends. The segments should not overlap each other because the result may not be shown correctly. If the result overlaps with a previous segment the previous segment will have priority. For example, if the first segment is from 0 to 60 and the second one is from 30 to 90 and the result used is 40 the first segment will be shown because of how the segments overlap.
  10. In the Segment color input field you can choose what color the segment layer is going to be by typing in the color code or clicking on the colored square near the input field and choosing it from the color selector.
  11. To remove a segment, simply click on the REMOVE button.

NOTE: The Gauge tool is usually used with the Text Gauge element which can show the segment label and the segment description.
