A customised Gauge chart

Summary: A Gauge chart that has been customised to look quite different from what is the default appearance.

[No canvas support]

Here's an example of the canvas Gauge chart which is just one of the various meter-type charts that's available with RGraph. These charts are:

As you can see - there are far more canvas based meters than SVG ones. Though you can quite easily configure the vertical and horizontal SVG Bar charts to appear as progress bars. There are demos of this being done in the download archive. There's also a demo available of a Pie chart being configured as a progress gauge and other meters here, here, here, here and here

Regarding this chart, the top and bottom titles are being configured, the colors for the banding around the Gauge is being set with specific ranges, there are multiple needles - each with its own color and the tickmarks are being configured.

As you can see it looks quite different to the standard Gauge!

The responsive() function in this case doesn't change the appearance or size of the chart but instead changes the CSS so the float is removed from the canvas and parent DIV and the alignment of the parent is changed to be center aligned.
