In Standard BOARD is setting the min Value as low limit and the max Value as high limit for the cockpit object:

As Example I’m using the vertical % Function, to show the Percentage of a total Value As you can easily see, my lowest value (min value) is 9 and my maximum is 67, but from the cockpit this is hardly to see

If you only have 1 Value the needle is pointing to the middle, also it’s 100% If you want to set minimum and maximum Values manual you can do this very easily using the alert function of the layout

Lower Quartile = (Max Value + 3* Min Value) / 4

Upper Quartile = (3* Max Value + Min Value) / 4

For our Case, we have only values between 0% and 100%.

According to that, our Min Value is equal to 0 and Max Value is equal to100,

So we get for Lower Quartile = (100 + 3*0) / 4 = 25 and Upper Quartile = (3 * 100 + 0) / 4 = 75

This Values we can use for the alerts of the shown Block: Which lead to following result: If only one Element is selected (so it’s value is 100%) we get the expected behaviour 1 person found this helpful
