MAP Device Gauge customization



Is it possible to change the appearance of the Device Gauge (*) Small?

The primary thing I want is it to be transparent. As it is now there's a white border around the "object". I've created a copy of it and renamed, also added to styles_custom.css, but I'm unsure what I have to change. The only thing I've managed so far is the background color, which does not even change this white "border".

If I am to use a background image on the map (to make it look good in a permanent setup) I need the object to be transparent. As it is now I have to have a white background for it too look okay.

Thank you very much for using PRTG. Please be aware that we can only give very limited support to customization on PRTG. You can try the following custom css to achieve transparent gauges on maps:

.map_object .gauge path{



Please work the other changes according to your needs yourself with editing the css & html-files of PRTG.

best regards.
