What it's doing is writing out the internet download in kb but moving it up and down according to the value. This is just the portion of the code that I'm working on but it should be independently working.

You may need to add DynamicVariables=1 to the meter with the Y that's a measure, and possibly to measures.

It's pretty big, and thanks for looking/helping me out.
Most of it is useless to the situation at hand but the variables are on line5 and net measures are on line65.
The new part I'm adding is at the bottom (line611).

I don't know if this is the case, but your formula [mDlY] may be off.
See, it's Formula=mNetworkDl/#InternetSpeed#. And mNetworkDl I've never seen above 1000. While InternetSpeed is 650000. So. It's supposed to move a fraction of a pixel. Even if it was happening, you wouldn't notice.
You may need to adjust #InternetSpeed# or the formula to move it.

*Edit* Lies. Just noticed the k after the value occaisonally. Sorry, I'm a bit tired. Nonetheless, it may be the problem.

Ok, I've tried a couple other things and I think I found the problem.
For some reason, I can't set the Y value as the output of another meter.
I tried it with various calc formulas, as mudance as (50*1 for example) and the Y value stays at zero.
Maybe someone can tell me how you can set the y value as the output of a meter. Alternately, I can set the Y value to a variable but then I don't know how to set the variable to equal the output of a meter.

(my formula was wrong but that was fixed)

Edit: I'm working on this anyways but suppose I wanted to make it so that if the output from mDlY 200 or more, the Y value in Dl equaled 'x' numer, say 250 regardless of any equation. How?
This is the fixed version:

First, [mDIY] is a measure not a meter, so you don't need Meter=String. Secondly, you only need DynamicVariables on meters or measures that are affected by the changing variables. Thus, [mDIY] doesn't need DynamicVariables=1 on it. Get rid of the IfAbove keys. They aren't doing anything and you don't need them.

This says if (mNetworkDl/#InternetSpeed#)*200 is above 200, then return 250. If it is less than 200, return (mNetworkDl/#InternetSpeed#)*200. It's a if then statement. I'm not entirely certain that the formula works since it's untested, but that is the right format.
