Scales in WPF Radial Gauge (SfCircularGauge)

Scales contain a collection of CircularScale elements, which integrate labels, tick marks, and a rim to customize the basic look and feel of the circular gauge.

Scale

The CircularScale contains sub elements such as rim, ticks, labels, ranges, and pointers. They define the radius, start angle, sweep direction, sweep angle, overall minimum and maximum values, frequency of labels, and tick marks. A scale will have multiple ranges.
A range is a visual element, which begins and ends at the specified values within a CircularScale. A range will have one or more pointers to point out the values in a scale.

Setting start and end values for scale

The StartValue and EndValue properties allow you to set the start and end values for a scale.

<gauge:SfCircularGauge>

    <gauge:SfCircularGauge.Scales>

    <gauge:CircularScale StartValue="-30" EndValue="50">

    <gauge:CircularScale.Pointers>

    <gauge:CircularPointer NeedlePointerVisibility="Hidden"/>

     </gauge:CircularScale.Pointers>

    </gauge:CircularScale>

    </gauge:SfCircularGauge.Scales>

    </gauge:SfCircularGauge>
SfCircularGauge sfCircularGauge = new SfCircularGauge();

  CircularScale circularScale = new CircularScale();

  circularScale.StartValue = -30;

  circularScale.EndValue = 50;

  CircularPointer circularPointer = new CircularPointer();

  circularPointer.NeedlePointerVisibility = Visibility.Hidden;

  circularScale.Pointers.Add(circularPointer);

  sfCircularGauge.Scales.Add(circularScale);

Setting start and sweep angles for scale

The StartAngle and SweepAngle properties allow you to set the start and end angles for a scale.

<gauge:SfCircularGauge>

    <gauge:SfCircularGauge.Scales>

    <gauge:CircularScale StartAngle="185" SweepAngle="270">

    <gauge:CircularScale.Pointers>

    <gauge:CircularPointer NeedlePointerVisibility="Hidden"/>

    </gauge:CircularScale.Pointers>

    </gauge:CircularScale>

    </gauge:SfCircularGauge.Scales>

    </gauge:SfCircularGauge>
SfCircularGauge sfCircularGauge = new SfCircularGauge();

  CircularScale circularScale = new CircularScale();

  circularScale.StartAngle = 185;

  circularScale.SweepAngle = 270;

  CircularPointer circularPointer = new CircularPointer();

  circularPointer.NeedlePointerVisibility = Visibility.Hidden;

  circularScale.Pointers.Add(circularPointer);

  sfCircularGauge.Scales.Add(circularScale);

Setting interval for scale

The Interval property allows you to set the interval for a scale. The default value of Interval is Auto, it defines the count of the scale labels based on StartValue and EndValue of scale.

<gauge:SfCircularGauge>

    <gauge:SfCircularGauge.Scales>

    <gauge:CircularScale StartValue="0" EndValue="500" Interval="100">

    <gauge:CircularScale.Pointers>

    <gauge:CircularPointer NeedlePointerVisibility="Hidden"/>

    </gauge:CircularScale.Pointers>

    </gauge:CircularScale>

    </gauge:SfCircularGauge.Scales>

    </gauge:SfCircularGauge>
SfCircularGauge sfCircularGauge = new SfCircularGauge();

   CircularScale circularScale = new CircularScale();

   circularScale.StartValue = 0;

   circularScale.EndValue = 500;

   circularScale.Interval = 100;

   CircularPointer circularPointer = new CircularPointer();

   circularPointer.NeedlePointerVisibility = Visibility.Hidden;

   circularScale.Pointers.Add(circularPointer);

   sfCircularGauge.Scales.Add(circularScale);

NOTE

You can specify the interval value upto 5 decimal places while showing the labels of linear scale.

Setting scale direction for scale

The SweepDirection property allows you to render the gauge scale in either clockwise or counterclockwise direction.

<gauge:SfCircularGauge>

    <gauge:SfCircularGauge.Scales>

    <gauge:CircularScale SweepDirection="Counterclockwise">

    <gauge:CircularScale.Pointers>

    <gauge:CircularPointer NeedlePointerVisibility="Hidden"/>
                        
    </gauge:CircularScale.Pointers>
                 
    </gauge:CircularScale>

    </gauge:SfCircularGauge.Scales>

    </gauge:SfCircularGauge>
SfCircularGauge sfCircularGauge = new SfCircularGauge();

   CircularScale circularScale = new CircularScale();

   circularScale.SweepDirection = SweepDirection.Counterclockwise;

   CircularPointer circularPointer = new CircularPointer();

   circularPointer.NeedlePointerVisibility = Visibility.Hidden;

   circularScale.Pointers.Add(circularPointer);

  sfCircularGauge.Scales.Add(circularScale);

Setting multiple scales for circular gauge

You can add multiple scales to the same circular gauge and customize all the scales in a Scales collection.

                    <gauge:CircularScale Radius="175">
