How to: Include Indicators and Gauges in a Gauge Panel (Report Builder 3.0 and SSRS)

The gauge panel is the top-level container that holds one or more gauges and indicators. Indicators can be embedded in gauges or placed next to them in the gauge panel.

If the indicator and gauge are adjacent in the gauge panel and show data from different fields, you might want to add labels to make it clear what data the gauge and indicator convey.

Gauge and indicator options can be set by using expressions. For more information, see Expressions (Report Builder 3.0 and SSRS).

NoteNote

You can create and modify report definitions (.rdl) in Report Builder 3.0 and in Report Designer in Business Intelligence Development Studio. Each authoring environment provides different ways to create, open, and save reports and related items. For more information, see Designing Reports in Report Designer and Report Builder 3.0 (SSRS) on the Web at microsoft.com.
