Once the variable to display has been selected, the way it is shown in the interface is also configurable. Here are some of the different gauge types that can be chosen.

Gauge configuration

One of the options that appear for all the kind of gauges is the customization of the colour according to the value of the variable shown. It is also possible to set alarms when the value is in a predetermined range. To do that select the option “Range” and a window will be displayed allowing the creation of different ranges, each one having a certain colour and an associated alarm of the ones configured on “Setup(Veronte Pipe)/Preferences/Alert_Audioclips” (section 3.3 ).

Note: In the case of displaying a boolean on the workspace (GPS Navigation Down for example), in the Range menu will appear automatically the two states, each one with a colour (green,red), and also with the possibility of selecting an audio clip for each one of them

When displaying a chart, it is useful to overlap with transparencies two or more in the same figure to observe their evolution. To do that, Pipe provides the “Change Group” option. Right clicking on the graph and selecting this item displays a window where the group name can be introduced. If two charts are in the same group, their relative position will be kept unchanged (they will move together).

The option highlighted in red is the option to lock the chart. If all the elements of the group are marked they will move together, if one is not marked it could be move with respect to the other group elements.
