I have been drinking from the BIRT fire hose the past couple of weeks, and I think I am pretty much there as far as understanding the framework.
One thing I can't figure out though:
I want to create a dashboard report with each row in the table showing a Meter Chart representing the status of a system until its next checkpoint. The lower end of the chart represents the previous checkpoint, the upper end the next checkpoint, and the needle points to the current status. If this is clear as muddy water please see the image below.
The challenge is that the lower and upper limits are part of the data set, and different for each row. I found scripts to transfer the values from data set to chart as a global variable, but although that appears to work in the plugin viewer it fails miserably in the stand alone report viewer. Presumably because the same global variables are used for every row, which doesn't make this method very thread safe.
Obviously the best thing would be if the Meter Scale would support dynamic values... Until that day arrives, does anyone have a suggestions as of he next best thing?
