Nevron Gauge for SSRS Features

General Features

Support for SQL Server 2005, 2008, 2008R2, 2012, 2014 and 2016 editions

Nevron Gauge for SQL Server Reporting Services introduces a new level of data visualization, designed to extend your reports within SSRS 2005, 2008, 2008R2, 2012, 2014 and 2016 editions.

Support for Multiple Gauge Areas

Nevron Gauge for Reporting Services supports unlimited number of gauge areas. Each gauge area has its own gauge type and the areas can be automatically or manually arranged. Gauge areas can be nested into one another to create sub gauges.

Support for Multiple Titles

Nevron Gauge for Reporting Services supports unlimited number of titles which can be manually positioned or docked to gauge, gauge areas and gauge plot areas.

Support for Gauge Templates

Nevron Gauge for Reporting Services supports saving and loading templates. Save the gauge state from the designer to XML and then import it in in a different report item. The state generated by the VS2005, VS2008 and VS2010 report items is compatible meaning you can easily convert reports generated with different versions of Visual Studio.

Support for Code Customization

Nevron Gauge for Reporting Services supports customization through C# code, which allows you to use the full Nevron Chart for .NET API in SSRS.

Gauge Types

Nevron Gauge for SSRS provides support for various Radial (Circular) Gauges, Linear Gauges, Numeric Display panels and State Indicators.

Gauge Formulas

Gauges are designed to provide data analysis to sets of numeric values. Gauge formulas can be applied to the aggregated sets applicable to axis ranges {min and max}, ranges {begin and end} and pointer and numeric display values. Nevron Gauge for SSRS includes various types of data analysis formulas such as: Min, Max, Average and more.

Gauge Axes

Nevron radial and linear gauge types support an unlimited number of axes, packed with a complete set of features designed to solve even the most complex gauge requirements.

Gauge Axes Ranges

Nevron radial and linear gauge types support an unlimited number of ranges. Ranges help you visualize the coverage of a values range on a certain axis.

Gauge Pointers

Radial and linear gauge types support an unlimited number of pointers. Pointers help you visualize a value on a certain axis. Radial gauges support numerous needle styles and both linear and radial gauges can display pointers as markers.

Gauge Types

The Gauge for SSRS offers a full range of advanced Gauge types, State Indicators and Numeric Displays that give you a more meaningful way to display KPI's (key performance indicators), dashboards, and other critical data.

Radial / Circular Gauges

Radial gauge icon
The SSRS Gauge Radial gauges displays axes, ranges and pointers in a circular fashion.

Radial Gauge Subtypes:
Radial, Quarter North East, Quarter North West, Quarter South West, Quarter South East, Half North, Half South, Half West, Half East and Custom. When using Custom subtype the user can specify custom begin angle, sweep angle, border style etc.

Linear Gauges

Linear gauge icon
The SSRS Gauge Linear gauges displays axes, ranges and pointers in a linear fashion.

Linear Gauge Subtypes:
Horizontal and Vertical.

Numeric Display

Numeric led display gauge icon
The SSRS Gauge Numeric Display panel displays values in a fashion similar to a LED displays.

Numeric Display Styles:
Seven Segment Normal, Seven Segment Rounded, Seven Segment Rectangular, Fourteen Segment Normal, Fourteen Segment Rectangular, Fourteen SegmentInset, Matrix Rectangle and Matrix Circle.

State Indicators

Gauge indicators icon
The SSRS Gauge State Indicators are supplementary gauges, typically used to visually prompt the user that a value has entered a critical range.

Axis-Related Features

Unlimited Number of Axes per Gauge

Radial and Linear gauge types support an unlimited number of axes, packed with a complete set of features designed to solve even the most complex gauge requirements.

Advanced Axis Positioning Options

Axes can be docked to the gauge sides (or rim) or arbitrary positioned in the gauge model space. In addition you have control over the begin / end axis position relative to the gauge area.

Ruler

Control over the ruler position and appearance.

Ticks

Support for major and minor ticks with control over their appearance and position.

Axis Stripes

Axis Stripes highlight repeating ranges of data on the gauge background, with a controllable show/hide pattern.

Axis Sections

Axis Sections conditionally modify the appearance of axis ticks, gridlines and labels, provided they are within a user-specified data range(s). This feature helps you highlight important ranges of data along the axis.

Label Layout

Nevron Gauge for Reporting Services provides advanced axis-label layout options, which let you resolve complex axis-label overlapping cases.

Label Formatting

Label Formatting controls the formatting of values along numeric scales. Many advanced options for currency, percentage, scientific and date time label formatting are available.

Indicators (Ranges and Pointers)

Unlimited number of Indicators

Linear and Radial Gauges support an unlimited number of pointer and range indicators.

Gauge Ranges

Ranges help you visualize the coverage of values range on a certain axis. You have full control over the range offset from scale, appearance and paint order.

Gauge Pointers

Pointers help you visualize a value on a certain axis. Radial gauges support numerous needle styles. Both linear and radial gauges can display pointers as markers. Both marker and needle pointers allow you to have full control over the pointer offset from scale, appearance and paint order.

Gauge Formulas

Gauges are designed to provide data analysis to sets of numeric values. Gauge formulas can be applied to the aggregated sets applicable to axis ranges {min and max}, ranges {begin and end} and pointers, and numeric display values. Nevron Gauge for SSRS supports are the following gauge formulas:
  • Min - finds the min value from a set.
  • Max - finds the max value from a set.
  • Average - finds the average value from a set.
  • Median - finds the value that splits the set in half (e.g. half of the values are smaller than median value and half are larger).
  • First - gets the first value from a set.
  • Last - gets the last value from a set.
  • Sum - gets the sum of all values in the set.
  • Count - gets the count of the values in the set.
  • Percentile - finds the value that splits the set in a custom percent.
  • Variance - the variance is used to measure the tendency of the values in the set to deviate from the average.
  • Standard Deviation - Returns the standard deviation of the values in the set.

Additional Customizations

Following is a brief list of some of the most important additional customization options that are visually exposed by the gauge designer:

Titles

  • Titles visibility
  • Titles appearance
  • Titles layout

Per Indicator (Range or Pointer) Properties

  • Display on axis
  • Appearance - full control over shape and styling.
