Creates the PmgCanvas
object configured as meter.
This preconfiguration can be activated when creating a new Pmg object
and is included in the group: "/ Meter"
This object contains embedded PmgCanvas
object named "Dynamic
". It controls the movement of the device pointer by using the variable
". It is possible to connect it to the measured value by data binding
In the parent PmgCanvas
object there are variables title
as meter name, min
defining the value range of the meter. The values technolMin
differentiate the technological limits by color. The arcScale
value defines the angle section where the scale is rendered. Additional configuaration variables are located in the context
itself, in the section beginning with the USER VALUES
Additional configuration variables are located at the beginning of context
itself, or at the beginning of designer's method. The following items can be set:
- sUnit - measuring unit
- fontSize - description text size
- majTicks - number of main ticks of the scale
- minTicks - number of minor ticks between main ticks
- nDescPer - specifies the quantity of main segment descriptors (0 = no, 1 = each main, 2 = each second)
- bgColor1 and bgColor2 - the values define the background colors of the meter
- borderWidth - width of the meter border
These configurators can be set before the preconfiguration is created:
|Object name||Name (identifier) of the Pmg object. It is used to obtain the Pmg object by the PmgObject.Items method.
This configurator sets the initial value of the Name property.
The maximum name length is 30 characters. This is a system name, so it must contain only alphanumeric and must not contain any diacritics (i.e. national dependent chars), empty string, spaces and the first character must not be a number.
|Unit of the measured value||Unit of the measured value (kPa, MPa, ot/min, dB, ...)|
|Measured value||Connection to measured value|
|Range from minimum||Start of the meter range|
|Range to maximum||End of the meter range|
|Show technological limits||Displays technological limits in colors|
|Technological minimum||Minimum in technological range|
|Technological maximum||Maximum in technological range|
|Main ticks ticks (number)||The number of main ticks of the scale|
|Minor ticks of the scale (number)||The number of minor ticks between two main segments|
|Description of scale values (1=each main tick)||Description of scale values (1=each main tick, 2=each second main tick)|
|Description font size||Description font size
