In this article we'll provide information on how to create and customise the Gauges tile type in Calxa dashboards.
Each tile type allows you to bind data in a similar way, however each tile will have different data properties. This section describes the data properties specific to a Gauge dashboard tile.
Actual & Target
When adding a Gauge, you'll need to choose an Actual value as minimum, but optionally include a Target value. If both items are provided, gauges show the difference between actual and target values, called delta.
Gauges allow you to display the difference between the actual and target values of a particular parameter. This difference is called delta.
Delta is shown with a delta indicator (indicating whether the actual value is less than or greater than the target value) and delta values (representing this difference as an absolute value or a variation).
Specifies which values should be displayed as the delta value.
Specifies the condition for displaying the delta indicator as red or green.
Specifies the comparison tolerance in percentage values or in absolute values.
Specifies the comparison tolerance value. If the delta value is between the positive and negative Threshold, the delta value is gray and no indication is displayed.
For each value type on the gauge you can choose different number formatting options.
Contains the data item whose values will be used to label separate gauges in the tile. If no series is provided, only one gauge element will be displayed. When you add series, the number of gauge elements is multiplied by the number of series values.
The Gauge dashboard tile allows you to select a gauge style. Depending on the size and shape of your tile, certain styles may be more appropriate.
The following types are supported.
If you've added a series to the gauge tile and therefore have a number of gauges arranged on one tile, you can specify the number of columns or rows by which gauges are arranged.
The following modes are available.
Automatically resizes gauges to fit within the dashboard item.
Allows you to specify the number of columns in which gauges are arranged.
Allows you to arrange gauges in a specific number of rows.
Use the Line Count field to specify the number of rows/columns
