Pointers in WPF Radial Gauge (SfCircularGauge)

Pointers are used to indicate values on the scale. Pointer value can be modified using the Value property.

There are three types of pointers. You can choose a pointer using the PointerType property.

Needle pointer

Indicate a current value by using the highly customizable needle-type element. A needle pointer contains three parts, a needle,knob and tail that can be placed on a gauge to mark values.

Different types of needle pointer

The appearance of the needle pointer can be customized using the NeedlePointerType property. The default value of this property is Rectangle.
The NeedlePointerType is an enum property that includes the following options:

  1. Rectangle

  2. Triangle

  3. Tapered

  4. Arrow

Needle pointer customization

The length of a needle is controlled using the NeedleLengthFactor property. The minimum and maximum bounds of the NeedleLengthFactor property is 0 to 1. The needle’s UI is customized using the NeedlePointerStroke and NeedlePointerStrokeThickness properties. The size of the pointer cap can be modified by changing the PointerCapDiameter property.

Tail of the needle pointer can be customized by using the TailFill, TailLengthFactor, TailStroke, and TailStrokeThickness properties.

  • TailFill - Fill color to needle pointer’s tail.

  • TailLengthFactor - Length factor of needle pointer’s tail. It’s range is 0 to 1.

  • TailStroke - Stroke to needle pointer’s tail.

  • TailStrokeThickness - Set the stroke thickness to needle pointer’s tail.

Setting position for range pointer

The RangePointer can be positioned anywhere in the gauge by the following ways:

  1. Setting direct RangePointerPosition property to place pointer inside or outside the gauge.
  2. Setting Offset and RangePointerStrokeThickness properties. This positions is responsive for all the window size. But RangePointer width is fixed.
  3. Setting RangeStartOffset and RangeEndOffset properties. This position and width are responsive to all size of the window.

Setting direct range pointer position

You can directly place the range pointer inside, outside or cross the scale by selecting one of the below option available in the RangePointerPosition property.

  1. Inside (Default)

  2. Outside

  3. Cross

  4. Custom

Setting offset range pointer position with fixed width

This ways allows to place the range pointer anywhere inside the gauge. First, set the RangePointerPosition to custom, and then set the Offset property for required position. Offset value should be from 0 to 1. This positions is responsive for all the window size. But RangePointer width is fixed.

Setting start and end position of the range pointer with offset

RangeStartOffset and RangeEndOffset properties with RangePointerPosition is custom allows to place the range pointer anywhere inside the gauge. First, set the RangePointerPosition to custom, and then set the RangeStartOffset and RangeEndOffset properties for required position. Offset value should be from 0 to 1. This position and width are responsive to all size of the window.

Setting custom symbol pointer

You can customize the SymbolPointer by setting Symbol as Custom and defining SymbolTemplate. Please find the custom template section below.

    Symbol pointer customization

    You can modify the stroke of the symbol by changing the SymbolPointerStroke property. The SymbolPointerHeight property is used to set the height of the symbol pointer. The value should be given as a double value. The SymbolPointerWidth property is used to set the width of the symbol pointer.

    Pointer dragging

    Events

    Value changing event

    Called during a drag when the user is selecting before a new value for the pointer by dragging. The ValueChangingEventArgs contains OldValue, NewValue, and Cancel properties.
    OldValue: Contains pointer old value.
    NewValue: Contains pointer new value.
    Cancel: To restrict the update of current drag pointer value, set ValueChangingArgs.cancel is true.
