Nevron Vision for SQL Server Reporting Services
The Gauge Visual Interface

At report design time, Nevron Gauge for Reporting Services appears as a report item in the Report Items section of the Toolbox. It is represented by this icon:

Adorner Panels and Drag and Drop

When you drag and drop the gauge in the report design surface, it will initially display a default radial gauge with one adorner panel - for the gauge categories:

You will typically drop dimension fields in the categories adorner panel. Each field that you drop in the categories panel will create a category data grouping. Each category data grouping is represented by a card in the category data grouping adorner panel.

It is not required to drop any category fields.

Gauge report items are performing data analysis on data sets. In gauges the category data groupings define the way in which the data is sampled prior to being analyzed by a gauge formula. See the The Gauge Data Model for a complete discussion.

Once you have finished defining the categories you need to open the gauge report item properties dialog to further tune the gauge.

Gauge Report Item Properties

If no category data grouping card is selected in the categories adorner panel, you can show the gauge report item properties dialog by right clicking on the report item and choosing the Properties command.

The Gauge Properties Dialog is constructed by hierarchically organized tabs and has a preview of the gauge located on top. Changes to the actual gauge report item are not applied until you press the Apply or OK buttons located at the right bottom side of the dialog.

The Gauge Properties Dialog consists of the following major tabs:

Category Data Grouping Properties

The category data groupings editor can be shown in two ways:

The category data groupings editor is illustrated by the following image:
