Range (if applicable): 0,1 optional 2 (yellow)

Properties: Tagname


This symbol shows not only color for status but a change of symbols. Some studies indicate about 10% of men are color blind. Show status not only with color but with symbols too. These symbols would be great for production monitoring (ANDON) systems or Business Intelligence Dashboards or for any status indicators.


  1. This symbol contains only native IWS objects. Enhanced graphics should be enabled in the Project – Viewer settings.

  2. This symbol can be used for Boolean Red/Green, or as an integer 0=Red, 1=Green, 2=Yellow.

  3. Anything out of range, for example a negative number or a number greater than 2 will show as black

Ideas for improvement:

  1. Add options for different colors or remove the border

  2. Add different sizes

  3. Add an option to enter a set point for a threshold that is not only Boolean based, for example change from red to green at 75%

Here’s how to use this symbol:
Unzip and copy the .sym file into your Symbol folder of where InduSoft Web Studio is installed. This is usually “C:\Program Files (x86)\Wonderware InduSoft Web Studio v8.0\Symbol” or similar. Either create a new folder or copy it into an existing one, such as “Indicators”.
