Move a value up and down along a background image

Hello,

My organization currently makes this chart by manually updating the value each time, see attached. Kind of like a thermometer chart, but the goal is zero, so the built-in Yellowfin chart type is not appropriate and we have our own graphic scale.

I have the blank background image and see how to use it in a chart's background. Now what I would like is for the "RESULTS ->" pointer to go up and down based on the most recent value in my data.

I got the data set up with date = max date so I have one row to work with. And I think I can get the Y-axis scale to match the thermometer's by setting it to say, -6 to 32.

But I'm struggling with chart type selection. Any advice on how I could use Yellowfin to make the indicator mark move up or down on this fixed image to get something like the attached?

Hi Sam,


Thanks for your question.


At this stage, there are no inbuilt charts that would enable you to achieve the results that you are after with this particular graphic.


I would suggest looking at example chart types from external Javascript libraries and integrating them with Yellowfin. Some popular options include D3JS, Highcharts, or Chart.js.


Let me know if you have any further questions.


Kind regards,

Simon
