Dynamic Gauge Segments

I have bee trying to assign dynamic Gauge Segments in a Table expression. I got a few Indicators and unfortunately they have different RAG rating points.

For Example      KPI - 1 RAG rating points are 0%-79%=RED, 80%-89%=AMBER, 90%-100%=GREEN

                         KPI - 1 RAG rating points are 0%-96%=RED,  97%-99%=AMBER, 100%=GREEN

It has trhe following table structure. Target table has all the necessary RAG point data for each Indicator (KPI)


Oroginally I though just assigning the [Amber Targ] and the [Green Targ] to each segment in the Gauge will atomatically get the relevent numbers based on each indicator and the Indicator number and the Indicator Description are the dimentions in the table. BUt I was getting all green Gauge without any segments.

Then I used the follwing script for each segment

REG - Segment 1 = 0

AMBER - Segement 2 = Aggr([Amber Targ], [KPI No], [KPI Desc])

GREEN = Segment 3 = Aggr([Green Targ], [KPI No], [KPI Desc])

Still I am getting just green Gauge without any segments.

Any help will be much appreciated. I have attache the test file if you want to have a look and feel free to edit if necessary

Re: Dynamic Gauge Segments

Hi Sampath,

Use a Button and give the expressions

Aggr([Amber Targ], [KPI No], [KPI Desc])


Aggr([Green Targ], [KPI No], [KPI Desc])

Then see what they evaluate to, the result will get displayed on the button. Also if you hardcode the values for segments, it must show you what you are expecting. So you can test both ways and see whats failing.

Re: Dynamic Gauge Segments


Unfortunately, it seems that for mini gauges QV calculates  segment bound once for all rows.

Even if you use aggr() it just gets 0 for lower bound (thats why the last green segment is shown).

Also note, you have checked 'Logarithmic scale'.

Re: Dynamic Gauge Segments

Unfortunately Aleksandr seems to be correct, coloring the traffic light works when the boundaries are set manually (using a fixed value), but calculating them for each line of the table doesn't do the trick.
