Ticks in UWP Linear Gauge (SfLinearGauge)

Ticks are used to identify the gauge’s data value by marking the gauge scale in regular increments.

Tick customization

By setting the MajorTickStroke and MinorTickStroke properties, the stroke of the major ticks and minor ticks can be customized. Using the MajorTickStrokeThickness and MinorTickStrokeThickness, the stroke thickness of the major ticks and minor ticks can be customized. The size of the major ticks and minor ticks can be modified using the MajorTickSize and MinorTickSize properties.

Setting position for tick

The ticks in the scale can be placed above, below, or in between the scale by choosing one of the following options available in the TickPosition property:

  1. Above
  2. Below (Default)
  3. Cross

        <gauge:SfLinearGauge.MainScale>

            <gauge:LinearScale     TickPosition="Above"

Setting minor ticks per interval

The Interval property is used to calculate the tick counts for a scale. Like ticks, minor ticks can also be calculated by using the MinorTicksPerInterval property.

        <gauge:SfLinearGauge.MainScale>

            <gauge:LinearScale     
                                   MajorTickStroke="Gray" MajorTickSize="25" 
                                   MinorTickSize="12" LabelSize="15" 
                                   MinorTickStroke="Gray" LabelStroke="#424242"

            linearScale.MajorTickStroke = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Gray);

            linearScale.MinorTickStroke = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Gray);

            linearScale.LabelStroke = new SolidColorBrush(Color.FromArgb(0xff, 0x42, 0x42, 0x42));

            linearScale.MajorTickSize = 25;
