Gradient not displaying correctly in MD4 simulator.

Using IQANdesign and trying to incorporate lines with gradients on the MD4. 

When developing User Interface in IQANdesign the lines with gradients appear as they should.

However when simulating, not all gradients appear as designed and are one solid colour. Appears to only happen on a portion of the page.

Have you checked on the real MD4 also?

There is an issue with how the simulator show the gradients, but on the MD4 it should display in the same way as in the display page editor. 

I was trying to use two different instance of the gradient feature and find it very limited. 

1. As a digital fuel gauge (mixing green and red). When the fuel level falls below a setpoint, the the bar transitions from green to red. However, at the mixing interface, gradient looked like smudged paint on the MD4. 

2. As a battery level indicator with a red warning when the charge falls below a set value. The same effects holds true as reported in 1 above. 

Is there a feature to display only one solid color above a certain threshold? When the threshold is crossed, is it possible for the same bar to display a different color? 

I look forward to your response.

Turned out to be difficult to solve, this will have to be a known issue for MD4 simulator.
