Gauge Views

The Gauge View displays a single value, or a list of values, comparing them with range thresholds. The gauge also allows for conditional formatting of the different ranges.

The ReportPlus Android gauge support comes in four different flavors: Linear, Circular, Text and Bullet Graph gauge.

Linear Gauge

The Linear Gauge displays a label, the value of which is taken from the Label Column configuration, and a value that comes from the configured Value Column. The value is charted as a rectangle, and is also displayed in a numeric format within its bounds or next to it.

This gauge type is suitable to compare the values of different rows side by side.


Circular Gauge

The Circular Gauge displays the band’s minimum and maximum thresholds, and the current value. It also paints the background with the color of the current range.


Text Gauge

The text gauge displays the Value column data in a large font. This flavor is suitable for very high priority metrics.


Bullet Graph Gauge

The Bullet Graph Gauge is very similar to a Linear gauge; it displays a label from the Label Column and a value from the Value Column. The value is charted as a horizontal line, and it is also displayed on the right in a numeric format.

The Bullet Graph adds a new visual indicator to the Linear gauge, a vertical mark that is based on a target value from the Target column. This new indicator is retrieved from a numeric column, meaning that you need two numeric columns and a text column to configure this view.


The bullet graph gauge is useful for comparing values side by side, while also evaluating the performance from the value (horizontal line) against the target value (vertical mark).
