I love that we can use custom images for sliders and progress bars. I think it would be great if we could also do the same with gauges. I would like to see two options:
Use an image to represent the "needle" that rotates around a central pivot (much like the solid line does now). This, however, would likely require support for transparency.
Rotate an image around the images centre.
Also, it would be nice if we could configure a background image, similar to sliders and progress bars. instead of just a crop image.
I vote for rotating of images
I would like to see both of these options as well.
Great would be if we can define the center on which it rotates think of like hour handles on a clock.
I vote for rotating of images too
that would be awesome the current needle looks a bit dinky
It is fairly easy to program your mcu to incrementally change the gauge
I am now reviewing all of the Feature Requests, this will take some time, patience please.
Rotating images - carried forward
Gauge background pic - carried forward
Gauge customer needles - carried forward
If i might add a suggestion about gauges, would be to allow the gauges frame to be partially placed outside the screen frame at least up to the middle point. It would make sense for some designs..
Thank you Maoartland,
It has already been previously suggested and is on our list of feature requests being considered in the next round - prioritizing the feature requests received.
We also need a customer needle, rotating image would probably work.
Many gauge examples are already posted.
This is accomplished by user code.
Including custom needles and rotating images.
This will most likely not be a firmware feature.
