For an Open Point List project, I use a visual symbol to display the status of several open points.

This looks like a stop light (green, yellow, red) that show the schedule part : active, pending and late.

Its also display the progress steps by using four quarters of a circle from start to close.

 

The color circle is done using a ‘square’ (30x30 pixels) with 4 round corners at 15 pixels. It also could be also directly a ‘circle’ object…


The green light is displayed only when the open point is in ‘active’ state using the hidden function of the object. 

The yellow light is displayed only when the open point is in ‘pending’ state and the red light is displayed only when the open point is in ‘late’ state.

 

The four quarters are four squares of 15 pixels, each with a different round corner and display the progression of the open point until the ‘close’ phase.

 

The last quarter will be display only for a ‘close’ value in the status field.

 

 

All objects are group together.
