Create custom gauges or controls for dashboard

The following excel file provides an easy way to create custom gauges. CANica has Needle components and lets you choose any background you like. If you don't want to spend a lot of time creating a complex background, here is a simple way of doing it.

Simply open the file and edit the angles you want to highlight, and write any label for each of them.

Export the resulting graph by printing the screen, and crop the resulting image to the exact portion of the gauge. Save it in BMP, GIF, JPG or PNG format.

Finally, add an image component to CANica and import the image you just created. Remember to put it under the needle.
