Ranges in WPF Linear Gauge (SfLinearGauge)

Range is a visual element, which begins and ends at specified values within a scale. You can add any number of ranges to a scale using the array of range objects.

Setting start and end values for range

The start and end values of ranges are set using the StartValue and EndValue properties.

Range customization

The UI element of a range is customized by changing the RangeStroke of the linear range, and the appearance of linear range is customized by setting the StartWidth and EndWidth properties. By setting the RangeOpacity of LinearRange, the opacity of the range can be modified.

Ranges - Linear Gauge

Binding range stroke to ticks and labels

You can bind the range’s stroke to tick lines and labels within its range by setting the BindWithRangeStrokeToLabels. Stroke of the labels can be set related to stroke of the specified ranges. Similarly, by setting the BindWithRangeStrokeToTicks, stroke of the ticks can be set related to stroke of the specified ranges.

Setting range position

The range can be placed above or below the scale by one of the following ways:

Setting range offset for linear range

Using the RangeOffset property, the linear range can be positioned with respect to the linear scale.

    <gauge:SfLinearGauge.MainScale>

    <gauge:LinearScale RangePosition="Below"

    ScaleBarStroke="#E0E0E0" MajorTickStroke="Gray" MinorTickStroke="Gray" LabelStroke="#424242"
