Using fancy chart elements

  
I have a dashboard that I want to put gauges on (e.g. gas gauge). I see that the stock chart library has the basic charts. Does anyone know how to do a gauges with it? If so can you please tell me know to do it?
Thanks!
Hi Gerry,

The latest version of the Platform comes with a Charts component that uses the highcharts library. I think that what you want is something like this: http://www.highcharts.com/demo/gauge-speedometer

I'm guessing it shouldn't be that difficult to extend the Charts component (with a new eSpace) to create such a chart.

Cheers,
André
We're not going to be on v8 for a few months. Is there anything in V7?
Fushion Charts has a paid version that includes gauges.  Previous versions of outsystems were using the Free Fusion Charts and this espace is easily updated to use a paid version.
there is an extension highcharts in the forge for lower versions:

 Hi André,

How do we go about if we want to add additional charts ?

Nice !
Good to see HighCharts made it as a component after my initial setup :-)
Well I am not sure it will work or not but try another chart library which is new but user friendly and looks amazing.

 Rather expensive ... $590 for single domain
 
Google charts might be free:  https://google-developers.appspot.com/chart/interactive/docs/gallery.  Looks like they have a gauge.
First start using the chart component and see if you miss something, than go over looking for something else ... :-)
