Key Features

  • Orientation - The Linear Gauge can be oriented vertically or horizontally.
  • Axis - The Linear Gauge axis is a scale where a set of values is plotted. Axis elements, such as labels, major ticks, and minor ticks, can be customized.
  • Ranges - The Linear Gauge range is a visual element that helps you quickly visualize where a range falls on the axis track. Multiple ranges with different styles can be added to a gauge.
  • Pointers - The Linear Gauge pointer is used to indicate a specific value on the axis. The control has three types of pointers: shape marker pointer, content marker pointer, and bar pointer. All the pointers can be customized as needed. You can add multiple pointers in a single gauge.
  • Pointer animation - The Linear Gauge can animate the pointer in a visually appealing way when the pointer moves from one value to another.
  • Pointer interaction - The Linear Gauge provides an option to drag a pointer from one value to another to change the value at runtime.
