The "Fill counter" is a data element from Thrive Architect, which comes in handy if you want to show data like percentages on your website.
Add the Element
The first thing you need to do in order to use the element is to open the page or post on which you want to place it, and then, click on the plus sign from the right sidebar:
Look for the "Fill Counter" element within the available list of elements:
Drag and drop the element to the desired location on your post or page:
As soon as you do that, the "Main Options" of the element will appear in the left sidebar, allowing you to further customize it.
Use the Main Options
With the help of its specific options you can have a "Fill Counter" that best suits your needs:
Counter Size and Fill Percentage
Simply drag the slider under these options or enter a value manually in the box next to them, to change the size or the fill percentage of the "Fill Counter".
Keep in mind, that changing the "Fill Percentage" won't automatically change the percentage number on the counter. You should think about the inner part as a separate part of the counter.
If you wish to change the percentage number or the "Fill Counter" label, click on them and edit the inline texts:
Note: If you have previously used the "Advanced Custom Fields" plugin to set up a "Number" custom field, then you will have the possibility to use that field for the "Fill Counter" element.

Circle, Fill, and Inner Color
There are three colors of the "Fill Counter" that you can change: the "Circle" color, the "Fill" color and the "Inner Color". Each of these can be changed by clicking on the color box next to them and selecting the specific color from the color picker:
Match fill value with dial value
The last option available in the sidebar is the "Match fill value with dial value":
If you activate this option, the numerical value shown within the "Fill Counter" will be directly proportional to the filled circle.
