The next step is to add the temp gauge.
The Configurator comes with a number of image files in the "sample skin" folder. These can be used to create something that moves as the values change, to give you an idea of how it works. So:
1) Once you have a default configuration with one Brain and one Temp sensor added, click on the Edit Graphical Qualities button
2) Work out where you want the corner of your image to be. Use the cursor-lines and the ruler, and make a note of that pixel location (100, 200 for example)
3) In the new window, Insert a New Multi-Image
4) In the new window, give the image a Name, select Analogue Input from the Monitor Type list, and then choose the temp sensor you declared using the Ninja Kitty Wizard. Click the tick box underneath to make it visible on the first screen.
5) Remember where you want it to show up in the screen. Type those two numbers (100, 200) in the Top Left Location boxes. Also, decide how big you want this guage to be. The size of the picture files we are using is 150 by 150. Put those numbers in the Display At Size boxes.
6) Now, click the yellow folder icon and navigate to the multi-image folder buried somewhere in the Sample Skin folder. Once you've selected the folder, the Configurator will load a window telling you to enter a range. Knowing the Brain reads 0-5V, I chose 0.0 as the lower and 5.0 as the higher, just to see what happens.
This loaded over 170 images in a sequence in the main window. You can now see that each image has assigned to it a tiny range of values, so that as the readings are taken from the input, the relevant image is shown on MDX. At this point it's ok to press the Green arrow.
7) back in the Graphical Layout window, click Save Graphics State.
At this point, I saved my config, quit Configurator and loaded MDX.
There were immediate results. Not pretty or accurate, but a fully-working moving image was quickly produced with little drama, and this is an incredible achievement. Presumably because of the random ranges I had chosen, the graph started at a very advanced stage and flickered around a lot in its readings, but you can still clearly see a bar progressing along as the sensor warmed up.
PRAISE: Configurator lets you quickly and easily make a gauge and provides all graphics required to do so.
