Channel definition

Define to color bands for the gauges like this.

start > end : color
  • Spaces around delimiters are optional
  • For start and end absolute or relative (with % suffix) values allowed, also mixed
  • If start is not given, begins from axis starts
  • If end is not given, ends on axis end
  • Colors can be defined as HTML color names (green, red etc.) or HTML color codes (#123456)

E.g. for a temperature channel (with axis range -30°C ... 30°C) the following are equivalent:

   >  0 : blue         ==       -30  >  50% : #0000FF
 0 > 20 : green        ==        50% >  20  : #008000
20 >    : red          ==        20  > 100% : #FF0000



Axis range: -15 °C ... 55 °C

   >  0 : #BBF  // below zero
 0 > 35 : #BFB  // ok 0 ... 35°C
