Data Display Target vs. Actual

Name: TargetVsActual_01.sym

Range (if applicable): -999 to 9999

Description:

Easy-to-use target to actual comparison. The labels can be changed to anything, such as “Desired”, “Preferred”, “Ideal”, etc. In addition to the numeric displays there is a bar graph below showing the target and actual values. Both the numeric display for Actual Value and the bar graph are red until they are less than the target value. There is a “Range” tag that allows some tolerance. For example if the target is 50, and the range is 5 the bar graph and numeric display will change green at 45. The default value for “Range” is 0.
