The native QV gauges are not very sexy but you can give them little makeover.
Please see below one on how to do that
(you can find out more her
Dislike gauge charts? You may want to give them a second chance)
The idea here is to have our scale started at 12 am (or pm).
We will need two gauges precisely layout out one on another.
The first gauge is just a circle, the second will hold calculation and segments.
Turn on the " Design grid" option.
It is very helpful when deciding upon the size of the chart or adjusting the layout.
Press right button anywhere on the tab and from option choose "Create New Sheet Object.." and then "Chart..."
a) Tab : General :-
Choose gauge from the chart options.
Add '1' as expression
Choose the first top left corner chart
Fallow the picture below:
The "Color Background" and the "Frame Background " "Transparency" must be set to 100%
The "Use Borders " box must be empty
The "Show Caption" box must be empty
The final result is a blue circle.
(Follow instruction on first chart)
Follow the picture below.
Where Segment 1 Lower Bound is 0 and color is Blue and Segment 2 Lower Bound is is your expression
(in this example only decimal number is use but normally you will need to enter an expression in form x/y)
and the color is transparent.
Add Text in "Text in Chart" option and format it as %.
|Segment 1||Segment 2|
Follow instruction for the first chart.
The final result:
And the two gauges joined together:
and a small visualization
