Ranges in WPF Radial Gauge (SfCircularGauge)

Range is a visual element, which begins and ends at the specified values within a scale.

Setting a start and end values for range

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

Range customization

A ranges appearance is customized by using the Stroke, StrokeThickness, and Offset properties. First, set the RangePosition property to custom in scale, and then set the Offset.

<gauge:SfCircularGauge>
          
    <gauge:SfCircularGauge.Scales>

    <gauge:CircularScale RangePosition="Custom">

    <gauge:CircularScale.Ranges>

    <gauge:CircularRange StartValue="0" EndValue="50" Offset="0.6" Stroke="Pink" StrokeThickness="40"/>

    </gauge:CircularScale.Ranges>

Setting a width for range

The circular range width is customized by setting the StartWidth and EndWidth properties.

Ranges - Circular Gauge

Setting a position for range

The range can be placed inside the scale, outside the scale, or on the scale by using the following two ways:

By setting direct range position

You can place the range by selecting one of the options available in the RangePosition property.

  1. Inside

  2. Outside

  3. SetAsGaugeRim (Default)

Ranges - Circular Gauge

By setting range offset

The range can be placed inside the scale, outside the scale, or on the scale by using the following two ways:

  1. Setting Offset and StrokeThickness properties.

  2. Setting InnerStartOffset, InnerEndOffset, OuterStartOffset, and OuterEndOffset properties.

NOTE

For using this feature need to set the RangePosition as custom in the Rim.

By setting Offset and StrokeThickness

For absolute position, you can use Offset and StrokeThickness properties of Range. For setting the Offset and StrokeThickness to the range.

You can give color transition to range by specifying the different colors using the GradientStops property of range. By using the Value and Color properties of GradientStops, you can adjust the color transition range for each color.
