Usage considerations

Using the percentage parameter

  • If the percentage value is negative or null, the gauge shows with 0% of the circle complete.
  • If the percentage value is greater than 100, the gauge shows with 100% of the circle complete.

Editing the gauge primary text

The gauge configuration pane contains a step-by-step designer to help you quickly try out all Primary Text formats. We recommend you use this designer to select the format that works best for your gauge. gif of editing the value in the middle of the gauge using design mode

Formatting primary text width and color

  • If custom primaryText or secondaryText does not fit within the gauge, it is truncated.
  • If the primaryText is formatted using a!gaugeIcon(), a!gaugePercentage(), or a!gaugeFraction(), it will resize to fit within the circle.
  • To conditionally set the color of the gauge, use fv!percentage as shown in the "Gauge Setting Color Based on Percentage" example below.
