Moving Image Graph

I'm trying to take the below image and make it so that depending on the data fed to it by the database it can rotate around to the correct %.

I have no idea how to do this, with CSS or many images?  Would prefer if the moving if the bar were animated, but again no idea where to start.

I've been playing around with this for a bit. I was sure a CSS3 expert would come up with some nice and easy pure CSS solution but since that hasn't happened (yet) I want to share my javascript solution with you. It uses 360 rotated divs, I used small parts of the image you posted, and I put some extra work in it to make it kind of like a plugin. You can test it straight away on my website: http://schutt.nl/ee/Q_28282364/ or download the attached files and test them locally or on your own website. I'm sure there are tons of improvements that could be made but I wanted to share this with you if only to let you know your question has not gone unnoticed...

Robert,

There is no neat CSS solution because it is a processing indicator and the processing would require scripting no matter what.  

If it was just a hover effect it would be a simple transform(rotate... effect with a transition to handle the timing, but CSS is event driven and does not have the capacity to do any of looping or conditional processing other than the ability to change some properties in response to changes in the state of elements.

That is a nice piece of code you have written.

Robert, that works great!

I'm looking through the code trying to understand exactly how it works. So if I want to have 2 graphs on the page and use 2 different colors in each I would need to replicate your above code in index.html then change the css (this is how I've currently done it) or is there an easier way without having to duplicate all the code?

Thanks, coming from you that's meaningful, the conclusion about CSS and the praise!

Gallitin
the colors are determined by the 2 images I took from your example image. If you can describe what color you want to change exactly (like blue to pink for a female version maybe? or get rid of the images and use any color?), then I could try to extend the parameters for that. I also started on a canvas version but that was nowhere near as nice as just using your already nicely shaded image.

      document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", init, false);
      function init() {
        ri1 = new rotatingImage( { x: 100, y: 100, value: 25, showLabel: false, showSlider: true, animDelay: 50 } );
        ri2 = new rotatingImage( { x: 300, y: 100, value: 50, showLabel: true, showSlider: false, animDelay: 50 } );
        ri3 = new rotatingImage( { x: 500, y: 100, value: 75, showLabel: true, showSlider: true, setImageNumber: 2 } );
      }

    </script>
  </head>
  <body>
  </body>
</html>

Open in new window

Where I added "setImageNumber: 2" at the end of the code, make sure the class exists (.rotim2) and the new image as well ('rotimg2.png'), then you can vary the colors as needed. If you need more freedom, let me know, I may have some more options.

Robert SchuttSoftware EngineerCommented:
The problem is caused by the anim function calling the increment function once even when value = 0. This can be solved in a number of ways, easiest probably (around line 100 in my last posted code):
        // show value direct or animated
        if (prm.animDelay && prm.value > 0) {

It seems the graph always is inserted into the page after the last <div> even if I have it within a div on the page.  Is there a way to modify so it will populate within the <div> I put it?

Nathan RileyFounderAuthor Commented:
I'm not sure but I think this line may have something to do with it?

document.body.appendChild(that.rotdiv);

I've tried different syntax, but haven't got it done.  I want it to reside within the "leftportion" div, but can't quite get it there.

Nathan RileyFounderAuthor Commented:
Well took a bit but fixed by replacing that line with:
 document.getElementById("leftportion").appendChild(that.rotdiv1);

Robert SchuttSoftware EngineerCommented:
ah, well good you found a solution. If you wanted to generalise that, you could add a parameter something like
ri1 = new rotatingImage( { x: 100, y: 100, /* ..., */ parentId: "leftportion" } );

Open in new window

then use something along the lines of (untested):
that.parentElement = prm.parentId ? document.getElementById(prm.parentId) : document.body;
that.parentElement.appendChild(that.rotdiv);

Open in new window

instead of
document.body.appendChild(that.rotdiv);

Open in new window
