Divide semi circle with stroke-dasharray and on active color fill

I’m working on an SVG gauge meter here I want to divide the semi-circle into parts when the range slider move on active stroke fill with gradient color. And want to add one more black color running track when the meter needle moves. I had tried using stroke-dasharray but after adding this all colors are coming at a time meter is not working properly.

  1. I want to divide the semi-circle into parts when the range slider move on active stroke fill with gradient color
  2. And I want to add one more black color running track when the meter needle moves.

My code here

/* set radius for all circles */
var r = 400;
var circles = document.querySelectorAll('.circle');
var total_circles = circles.length;
for (var i = 0; i < total_circles; i++) {
  circles[i].setAttribute('r', r);
}
/* set meter's wrapper dimension */
var meter_dimension = (r * 2) + 100;
var wrapper = document.querySelector('#wrapper');
wrapper.style.width = meter_dimension + 'px';
wrapper.style.height = meter_dimension + 'px';
/* add strokes to circles  */
var cf = 2 * Math.PI * r;
var semi_cf = cf / 2;
var semi_cf_1by3 = semi_cf / 3;
var semi_cf_2by3 = semi_cf_1by3 * 2;

document.querySelector('#outline_curves').setAttribute('stroke-dasharray', semi_cf + ',' + cf);
document.querySelector('#high').setAttribute('stroke-dasharray', semi_cf + ',' + cf);
document.querySelector('#avg').setAttribute('stroke-dasharray', semi_cf_2by3 + ',' + cf);
document.querySelector('#low').setAttribute('stroke-dasharray', semi_cf_1by3 + ',' + cf);
document.querySelector('#outline_ends').setAttribute('stroke-dasharray', 2 + ',' + (semi_cf - 2));
document.querySelector('#mask').setAttribute('stroke-dasharray', semi_cf + ',' + cf);
/*bind range slider event*/
var slider = document.querySelector('#slider');
var lbl = document.querySelector("#lbl");
var mask = document.querySelector('#mask');
var meter_needle = document.querySelector('#meter_needle');

function range_change_event() {
  var percent = slider.value
  var meter_value = semi_cf - ((percent * semi_cf) / 100);
  mask.setAttribute('stroke-dasharray', meter_value + ',' + cf);
  meter_needle.style.transform = 'rotate(' + (450 - ((percent * 180) / 100)) + 'deg)';
  lbl.textContent = percent + '%';
}
slider.addEventListener('input', range_change_event);
#wrapper {
  position: relative;
  margin: auto;
}

#meter {
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  transform: rotate(180deg);
}

Answer

Here’s a working SVG example, with a little bit of javascript.

It’s not clear from your question what exactly you want the coloured divisions to look like. For now I’ve just made them solid red. But you can make them look however you’d like by changing the fill of the <rect id="meter-colours" .../>.

let METER_DIVISIONS = 10;
let METER_DIVISIONS_GAP = 4;

// Initialise meter
let meterDivisionsElem = document.getElementById("meter-divisions");
// Calculate size of each meter division
let totalLen = meterDivisionsElem.getAttribute("r") * Math.PI;
let numGaps = METER_DIVISIONS - 1;
let divLen = (totalLen - METER_DIVISIONS_GAP * numGaps) / METER_DIVISIONS;
// Set meter divisions dash pattern
let pat = divLen + ' ' + METER_DIVISIONS_GAP + ' ';
meterDivisionsElem.setAttribute("stroke-dasharray", pat.repeat(numGaps) + ' ' + divLen + ' ' + totalLen);

// The slider form element
let sliderElem = document.getElementById("slider");
// The slider label element
let sliderLabelElem = document.getElementById("lbl");
// The needle element
let needleElem = document.getElementById("needle");
// The black bar element
let blackBarElem = document.getElementById("black-bar");
let blackBarLen = blackBarElem.getAttribute("r") * Math.PI;
// The meter colours element
let meterColoursElem = document.getElementById("meter-colours");

function setMeterTo(value)
{
  // Update slider label
  sliderLabelElem.textContent = value + '%';

  // Update needle position
  let rotation = value * 180 / 100;
  needleElem.setAttribute("transform", "rotate(" + rotation + ")");

  // Update black bar length
  let barLen = value * blackBarLen / 100;
  blackBarElem.setAttribute("stroke-dasharray", barLen + ' ' + (2 * blackBarLen));

  // Update coloured division section of the meter
  meterColoursElem.setAttribute("transform", "rotate(" + rotation + ")");
}

// Add an input change handler to the slider
sliderElem.addEventListener("input", function(evt) {
  setMeterTo(evt.target.value);
});

// Initialise meter to start value
setMeterTo(25);
#wrapper {
  width: 600px;
}

#slider {
  width: 100%;
}

#needle {
  stroke-linecap: round;
}
<div id="wrapper">
  <svg id="meter" viewBox="0 0 200 110">
    <defs>
      <circle id="meter-divisions" r="90" stroke-width="20" stroke-dasharray="282.7"/>

Update re new needle image

First let’s simplify your needle image:

<svg width="650px" viewBox="0 0 65 51.333">
<g>
  <path fill="#58595B" fill-rule="evenodd" d="M19.514,44.289c-1.652,5.013-7.056,7.736-12.066,6.083c-5.014-1.653-7.736-7.056-6.084-12.067c1.652-5.013,7.055-7.736,12.068-6.083C18.443,33.875,21.166,39.277,19.514,44.289 M17.318,43.564c-1.253,3.801-5.35,5.865-9.15,4.612c-3.797-1.253-5.863-5.35-4.609-9.148c1.254-3.8,5.349-5.865,9.148-4.612C16.506,35.67,18.57,39.766,17.318,43.564 M12.709,42.044c-0.412,1.254-1.765,1.936-3.02,1.523c-1.253-0.414-1.934-1.765-1.52-3.019c0.412-1.253,1.764-1.936,3.017-1.521C12.44,39.441,13.121,40.792,12.709,42.044"/>

To use this in your meter, we’ll need to locate an accurate centre of rotation (the dot in the circle), and re-orient it so that it has zero angle. We may also need to adjust its scale to fit the meter.

By analysis and experimentation, the centre of rotation is at (10.44, 41.3) and the rotation needed to zero out the rotation is 35.8 deg.

Since the meter is centred at (0,0) we need to start by shifting and rotating the new needle by those amounts.

<svg width="650px" viewBox="0 0 65 51.333">
<g transform="rotate(35.8) translate(-10.44, -41.3)">
  <path fill="#58595B" fill-rule="evenodd" d="M19.514,44.289c-1.652,5.013-7.056,7.736-12.066,6.083c-5.014-1.653-7.736-7.056-6.084-12.067c1.652-5.013,7.055-7.736,12.068-6.083C18.443,33.875,21.166,39.277,19.514,44.289 M17.318,43.564c-1.253,3.801-5.35,5.865-9.15,4.612c-3.797-1.253-5.863-5.35-4.609-9.148c1.254-3.8,5.349-5.865,9.148-4.612C16.506,35.67,18.57,39.766,17.318,43.564 M12.709,42.044c-0.412,1.254-1.765,1.936-3.02,1.523c-1.253-0.414-1.934-1.765-1.52-3.019c0.412-1.253,1.764-1.936,3.017-1.521C12.44,39.441,13.121,40.792,12.709,42.044"/>

The needle is now horizontal, and positioned at (0,0).

We can now integrate it into the previous solution:

let METER_DIVISIONS = 10;
let METER_DIVISIONS_GAP = 4;

// Initialise meter
let meterDivisionsElem = document.getElementById("meter-divisions");
// Calculate size of each meter division
let totalLen = meterDivisionsElem.getAttribute("r") * Math.PI;
let numGaps = METER_DIVISIONS - 1;
let divLen = (totalLen - METER_DIVISIONS_GAP * numGaps) / METER_DIVISIONS;
// Set meter divisions dash pattern
let pat = divLen + ' ' + METER_DIVISIONS_GAP + ' ';
meterDivisionsElem.setAttribute("stroke-dasharray", pat.repeat(numGaps) + ' ' + divLen + ' ' + totalLen);

// The slider form element
let sliderElem = document.getElementById("slider");
// The slider label element
let sliderLabelElem = document.getElementById("lbl");
// The needle element
let needleElem = document.getElementById("needle");
// The black bar element
let blackBarElem = document.getElementById("black-bar");
let blackBarLen = blackBarElem.getAttribute("r") * Math.PI;
// The meter colours element
let meterColoursElem = document.getElementById("meter-colours");

function setMeterTo(value)
{
  // Update slider label
  sliderLabelElem.textContent = value + '%';

  // Update needle position
  let rotation = value * 180 / 100;
  needleElem.setAttribute("transform", "rotate(" + (-rotation) + ")");

  // Update black bar length
  let barLen = value * blackBarLen / 100;
  blackBarElem.setAttribute("stroke-dasharray", barLen + ' ' + (2 * blackBarLen));

  // Update coloured division section of the meter
  meterColoursElem.setAttribute("transform", "rotate(" + rotation + ")");
}

// Add an input change handler to the slider
sliderElem.addEventListener("input", function(evt) {
  setMeterTo(evt.target.value);
});

// Initialise meter to start value
setMeterTo(25);
