Annotations

SfCircularGauge supports Annotations, which allows you to mark the specific area of interest in circular gauge. You can place custom views as annotations. The text and images also can be added by using Annotations property.

Setting image annotation

Annotations provide options to add any image over the gauge control with respect to its offset position. You can add multiple images in single control.

Setting text annotation

You can add any text over the gauge control to enhance the readability. You can add multiple text instances in single control.
