I have such a control, but it will not help you very much. It's actually a +/- control to lower or raise some settings, but the + and - buttons can be hidden away. Colors and other stuff can be set in XAML. The real problem is that it is a control for my own UI which runs in a 3D engine. So, unless you are writing a game...
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
Show the value as a bar (where the bar length represent the value) and color the bar directly (e.g. red: out, yellow: nearly out, green ok. this of course can be made more smooth). So simply looking to the bar's color tells you ok/nok ...
Yeah, I know how to do it, I'm just looking for some really slick examples of it. Except my google-fu is just not coming up with any decent examples, so I'm hoping there's an actual name for something like this that will help lead me to the motherlode of ideas.
- What entity or unit does the variable represent?
- is it a numeric value?
- is it something continuous
- are there 'standards' for this type of data
Assuming it is continuous numeric, I would go for a distribution plot _/\_ background
- would make it easy interpretable by the color blind
- it can indicate asymmetric "quality" of the value
- it can have logarithmic scales, or other non linear scales (there might be more optima?)
The idea: You have a range of values. Could be dates, or integers, or real numbers, or sorted categories. Doesn't matter. You have an "optimal" range, and you have a pointer pointing to the current value.
It's a super simple concept and I've seen a ton of them (my car's coolant guage to name a random one) but I just don't know what to search for to find really nice examples.
That's a bit simple, isn't it? Where's the 100MB .JS framework you have to load with each page?

I'm looking for an overly complicated set of examples I can use to maybe research some repos and maybe grab something of npm and then spend a painful weekend wrestling with it and hating the "documentation" (sarcasm added) and you go ahead and just paste the code in less time for me to curse your simplicity and efficiency.
1 and 5 are the absolute limits?
2 and 4 are the custom limit to be considered for the range?
and 3 the current value?
Being green between 2 and 4,
orange between 1 and 2 or 4 and 5
and red if smaller than 1 or bigger than 5?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
