Displays a gauge for each line in a table indicating a value and comparing this value to certain ranges or to other identifiers.




Prepare in TIS Editor Step 1

Prepare the input data in a data node. The table must contain the following columns.

  • A column containing the names of the gauges (here: "City"),
  • a column containing the values (here: "Data"),
  • a column containing the minimum values of the gauges (here: "From1"), and
  • columns defining the colored sections of the gauge (here: "To1" through "To5", with "To5" containing the maximum value of the gauge).

The number of rows in the table is limited to 15 (at most 15 gauges can be displayed). Rows with index higher than 15 will be discarded and a warning will be given.

Prepare in TIS Editor Step 2

Add an operation with operator TIS Board - Gauge 1.0. Choose the columns to be used in the operation and the colors for each data range.

Prepare in TIS Editor Step 3

Create in Portlet Designer Step 1

Select New Portlet

Create in Portlet Designer Step 2

Define how many gauges should be on one page (here 15) and the number of columns where the gauges should be placed (here 3).

Edit in Portlet Designer Step 3

See general Description in Formatting and Working with Portlets

The result is something like this:

Exceeding max value

Note: the scale adapts to the value if it exceeds the maximum.

In the following example the maximum value 10 is exceed by the actual value of 25. The scale adapts to 25.
