Custom Properties: ActualLabel, SPLabel, Max, Min, TagActual, TagSP
Description: This meter shows 2 bar graphs, one for the actual value, and one for a set point (SP) value. Increment and decrement buttons allow the user to increase or decrease the value one at a time by clicking and releasing, or up/down in steps of 5 if the buttons are held down. The set point bar graph also contains a slider to allow for easy adjustment
This symbol currently uses the built in scripting for the increment/decrement functionality. You could change this to VBScript.
This symbol will work for non-temperature type values as well. For example, speed settings, length, or even timing settings.
Ideas for improvement:
Add the configuration for different color bar graphs
Decrease the width by combining the two scales (lines) into one.
Make the background rectangle change color based on an alarm condition, for example, red if the temperature is too high, or blue, if the temperature is too cold. Make it easier for operators to tell at a glance there is a problem.
Create a horizontal version.
Add gradient colors to the bars to make them more aesthetically pleasing!
