Can EGT and CHT Digits Change Color??? (Read 415 times)

My oil temperature (and some other widgets) have the "dial indicator" and also a digital readout above the indicator that shows a numerical readout of the oil temperature in degrees F...and when the needle of the indicator moves to the different color bands the digital readout above the dial will change to the respective color of the band on the dial.

Can I get my EGT and CHT widgets to do the same functionality? 

My current EGT settings are programmed to have a blue band when the EGT is cold and then green when the temp is normal and then yellow when warm and red when too hot however the digital readout does not change colors...it just remains as a white readout.

Can I get the digital readout to change colors with the needle?

THANKS!!!

Mine change color...yellow when the value is in the yellow range, red when in the red (or rather, white letters on a red background).

As Steve says they change color according to the ranges.

I guess my question was not typed correctly.

I see that the digits change color when the bar graph get to the next level however does the bar itself also change color as the temperature changes?

Example, I want my EGT bar graph to be red when the temp is too high, yellow when it is warm, green when it is just right, and when that cylinder flames out I want the bar graph to show blue.

So in a prolonged throttle closed descent I want to see a bunch of blue bars to tell me that the engine quit...and not just a bunch of green bars with blue digits.

Yes. In the picture above the vertical bars are EGT's. The horizontal bars over the vertical bars are CHT's. The CHT bar and the value are both yellow for one cylinder.

On the following picture two of the EGT's bars are blue. It looks like the values only change colour if they are yellow or red. My minimum EGT is 538C (1000F) so the two EGT's below that value don't have bars showing.

You piqued my curiosity. At what temperatures would the EGT's be too hot?
