value >= range value and it will show the corresponding bitmap. For example, if
current state 0 and range value is 300, current state 1 and range value is 500,
when device value is between 300, 500 and it will show the corresponding bitmap
of current state 0, if device value is large than 500, and it will show the
corresponding bitmap of current state 1. But if device value is small than 300, it
won’t display any bitmap due to no current state conforms to it.
