I have max limit (in this case $180) and progress indicator how much was spent ($50)
What is the best/effective way to show user that he/she
Has max limit $180
Can spend $130 more
It seems to me progress bar is not right solution because it must indicate Discharge / Spend / Waste not Progress / Fill
May be it's more like UI question than UX but main point is how to represent something that is spend/discharged. Example would be: Car fuel indicator, it goes down (from right to left, anti clockwise) when we burn fuel and goes up when we fill fuel tank.
