At the moment, if you set a Text meter to display as anything other than text, its value will always be 0%. It would be much more handy if it was 100%, since you could use them as static graphics then.
Here's an example application. At the moment it uses a text file with "100" written in it and Text File meters to create the colored zones:

I don't think that'll ever change.
I use a Date/Time meter with "d" (day), which always gives a value from 1 to 31. Then I set whatever draw type I want to have Min=0 and Max=1. Same effect as what you do, but without the text file.
It comes in handy for gradients, and pies (as you already know).
