I like to use regular panel meters for showing data. I would like to know if there's such a thing as a linear meter, say 10 cm long or so. By linear I mean that the indicator moves up some scale in a linear fashion - like a bar graph, or something similar. Such a meter would likely take up a bit less space on the front panel of a case, and would likely have a pleasing "look and feel".
Do such "linear" meters exist as a manufactured product?
