Getting Started

This section explains you the steps required to configure the SfBulletGraph and also explains the steps to add basic elements of SfBulletGraph through various API’s available within it.

Configuring SfBulletGraph using Syncfusion Reference Manager

Syncfusion Reference Manager is used to add Syncfusion Tools.

Follow the below steps to add SfBulletGraph Control using Syncfusion Reference Manager.

Create a simple WPF application using Visual Studio.

Right Click on the Project and select Syncfusion Reference Manager.

The Syncfusion Reference Manager Wizard will be opened as shown in the figure below.

Search for SfBulletGraph using SearchBox and select SfBulletGraph Control. Click on done to add selected SfBulletGraph control.

The SfBulletGraph assemblies will be automatically added to the Project after Clicking OK.

Create a namespace reference to the SfBulletGraph control using Syncfusion’s global namespace reference schemas.Syncfusion.com or the SfBulletGraph control’s namespace reference using Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.BulletGraph available in the Syncfusion.SfBulletGraph.WPF assembly.

  • xaml
  • xmlns:bulletgraph="http://schemas.syncfusion.com/wpf"
        (or)
        xmlns:bulletgraph ="clr-
        namespace:Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.BulletGraph;assembly=Syncfusion.SfBulletGraph. WPF"

    Add the following code to create a simple SfBulletGraph control.

    <Window x:Class="SfBulletGraph.MainWindow"
        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
        xmlns:syncfusion ="http://schemas.syncfusion.com/wpf"
        Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">
        <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot">
        <syncfusion:SfBulletGraph/>
        </Grid>
        </Window>
    SfBulletGraph bulletgraph = new SfBulletGraph();
        this.Grid.Children.Add(bulletgraph);

    The SfBulletGraph control will be created as shown in the figure below.

    Note:- The Syncfusion Reference Manager is available in versions 11.3.0.30 and later. It supports referencing assemblies from version 10.4.0.71 version to the current version and Syncfusion Reference Manager can be used only in Visual Studio 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2015.

    Configuring SfBulletGraph

    SfBulletGraph is available in the following assembly and namespace:

    Assembly: Syncfusion.SfBulletGraph.Wpf

    Namespace: Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.BulletGraph

    Create a namespace reference to the SfBulletGraph control using Syncfusion’s global namespace reference schemas.Syncfusion.com or the SfBulletGraph control’s namespace reference using Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.BulletGraph available in the Syncfusion.SfBulletGraph.WPF assembly.

  • xaml
  • xmlns:bulletgraph="http://schemas.syncfusion.com/wpf"
        (or)
        xmlns:bulletgraph ="clr-
        namespace:Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.BulletGraph;assembly=Syncfusion.SfBulletGraph. WPF"
    <syncfusion:SfBulletGraph/>
    SfBulletGraph bulletgraph = new SfBulletGraph();
        this.Grid.Children.Add(bulletgraph);

    As you can see now in the above image, the SfBulletGraph displays its default elements. To customize its element, you have to add respective elements to SfBulletGraph, following section contains the steps to add the basic elements to SfBulletGraph.

    Adding Caption

    You can assign a caption to SfBulletGraph by making use of “Caption” property and also you can position it either near or far using “CaptionPosition” property.

    <syncfusion:SfBulletGraph CaptionPosition="Far" Caption="Revenue YTD"
        </syncfusion:SfBulletGraph>
    SfBulletGraph bulletgraph = new SfBulletGraph();
        bulletgraph.Caption = Revenue YTD;
        bulletgraph.CaptionPosition  = BulletGraphCaptionPosition.Far;
        this.Grid.Children.Add(bulletgraph);

    Configuring Ticks and Labels

    You can configure Ticks and Labels of Quantitative Scale by making use of following API’s available in SfBulletGraph.

    They are:

    • Minimum
    • Maximum
    • Interval
    • MinorTicksPerInterval
    • MajorTickSize
    • MinorTickSize
    • MajorTickStroke
    • LabelStroke
    • MinorTickStroke
    <syncfusion:SfBulletGraph Minimum="0" Maximum="10" Interval="2"   
                                      QualitativeRangesSize="30" 
                                      QuantitativeScaleLength="300"    
                                      MinorTicksPerInterval="3"
                                      MajorTickSize="15" MinorTickSize="10"
                                      MajorTickStroke="Red" LabelStroke="Black" MinorTickStroke="Green">
            </syncfusion:SfBulletGraph>
    SfBulletGraph bulletgraph = new SfBulletGraph();
          bulletgraph.FlowDirection = BulletGraphFlowDirection.Forward;
          bulletgraph.Orientation = Orientation.Horizontal;
          bulletgraph.QualitativeRangesSize = 30;
          bulletgraph.QuantitativeScaleLength = 300;
          bulletgraph.Minimum = 0;
          bulletgraph.Maximum = 10;
          bulletgraph.Interval = 2;
          bulletgraph.MinorTicksPerInterval = 3;
          bulletgraph.MajorTickSize = 15;
          bulletgraph.MinorTickSize = 10;
          bulletgraph.MajorTickStroke = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Red);
          bulletgraph.LabelStroke = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Black);
          bulletgraph.MinorTickStroke = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Green);
          this.Grid.Children.Add(bulletgraph);

    Adding Ranges

    You can add ranges to SfBulletGraph by creating ranges collection using QualitativeRanges.

    <syncfusion:SfBulletGraph Orientation="Horizontal" Minimum="0" Maximum="10" Interval="2"  FlowDirection="Forward"
                                      QualitativeRangesSize="30" 
                                      QuantitativeScaleLength="300">
                <syncfusion:SfBulletGraph.QualitativeRanges>
                    <syncfusion:QualitativeRange RangeEnd="4.5" 
                                                 RangeStroke="Red"
                                                 RangeOpacity="1">
                    </syncfusion:QualitativeRange>
                    <syncfusion:QualitativeRange RangeEnd="7.5" 
                                                 RangeStroke="Yellow"
                                                 RangeOpacity="1">
                    </syncfusion:QualitativeRange>
                    <syncfusion:QualitativeRange RangeEnd="10" 
                                                 RangeStroke="Green"
                                                 RangeOpacity="1">
                    </syncfusion:QualitativeRange>
                </syncfusion:SfBulletGraph.QualitativeRanges>
            </syncfusion:SfBulletGraph>
    SfBulletGraph bulletgraph = new SfBulletGraph();
                bulletgraph.QualitativeRangesSize = 30;
                bulletgraph.QuantitativeScaleLength = 300;
                bulletgraph.FlowDirection = BulletGraphFlowDirection.Forward;
                bulletgraph.Orientation = Orientation.Horizontal;
                bulletgraph.Minimum = 0;
                bulletgraph.Maximum = 10;
                bulletgraph.Interval = 2;
                bulletgraph.QualitativeRanges.Add(new QualitativeRange()
                {
                    RangeEnd = 4.5,
                    RangeOpacity = 1,
                    RangeStroke = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Red)
                });
                bulletgraph.QualitativeRanges.Add(new QualitativeRange()
                {
                    RangeEnd = 7.5,
                    RangeOpacity = 1,
                    RangeStroke = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Yellow)
                });
                bulletgraph.QualitativeRanges.Add(new QualitativeRange()
                {
                    RangeEnd = 10,
                    RangeOpacity = 1,
                    RangeStroke = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Green)
                });
                this.Grid.Children.Add(bulletgraph);

    SfBulletGraph ranges are displayed as follows.
