Getting Started

  • This section encompasses the details on how to configure DigitalGauge. Here you will learn how to provide data for a DigitalGauge and display the data in the required way.
  • In addition, you will learn how to customize the default DigitalGauge appearance according to your requirements. As a result, you will get a DigitalGauge that shows it as Digital thermometer.
  • You can use this DigitalGauge in advertisements, decorative purposes, displaying share details in share market, game score boards, token systems, etc.

Digital Thermometer

Create a Digital Gauge

1.To create Syncfusion Aurelia application refer [Aurelia Getting Started documentation](https://help.syncfusion.com/aurelia/overview#getting-started “”).
2.Create digitalGauge folder inside src/samples location.
3.Create digitalGauge.html file inside src/samples/digitalGauge folder and use the below code for rendering DigitalGauge component
4.Create a <div> tag.

  • html
  • <!DOCTYPE html>
    <body>
    <template>
    <div>
         <ej-digital-gauge id="digitalgauge">
            </ej-digital-gauge>
            </div>
    </template>
    </body>
    </html>

    5.Create digitalGauge.js file inside src/samples/digitalGauge folder with below code snippet.

  • javascript
  • export class DigitalGauge {
        constructor() {}
        }

    Run the above code example and you will get a default Digital Gauge as follows.

    Set Height and Width values

    Basic attributes of each canvas elements are height and width. You can set the height and width of the gauge.

  • html
  • <!DOCTYPE html>
    <body>
    <template>
    <div>
         <ej-digital-gauge id="digitalGauge" e-height="145" e-width="260">
            </ej-digital-gauge>
            </div>
    </template>
    </body>
    </html>
  • javascript
  • export class BasicUse {
    constructor() {
     
    }
    }

    Run the above code example and you will see a default gauge with the specified height and width values.

    Set Items Property

    Items have different properties to customize the Digital Gauge.

    Add Segment and Character Properties

    • In the Welcome Board, the text color must be attentive in nature. You can give some segment properties such as segment spacing, segment width, segment color, segment length and segment opacity.
    • Character type is to define the Digital representation of the character. The five types of character representation available are,
      1. EightCrossEightDotMatrix
      2. SevenSegment
      3. FourteenSegment
      4. SixteenSegment
      5. EightCrossEightSquareMatrix.
  • javascript
  • export class BasicUse {
    constructor() {
     this.items= [{
                    segmentSettings: { width: 2, length: 20 },
                    characterSettings: { type: "SevenSegment", spacing: 12, },
                    value: "102",
                }];
    }
    }
  • html
  • <!DOCTYPE html>
    <body>
    <template>
    <div>
