Labels in Xamarin Linear Gauge (SfLinearGauge)

LinearScale labels associate a numeric value with major scale tick marks.

Label color customization

The label color can be changed using the LabelColor property.

<gauge:SfLinearGauge>
               <gauge:SfLinearGauge.Scales>
                <gauge:LinearScale ScaleBarColor="#e0e0e0" LabelColor="Purple">

            linearScale.LabelColor = Color.Purple;
            linearGauge.Scales.Add(linearScale);

Label font customization

The label font can be customized using the LabelFontSize, FontAttribute, and FontFamily properties.

Setting a position for labels

The labels can be positioned far away from the ticks using the LabelOffset property in pixel.

Setting postfix and prefix for labels

You can postfix or prefix values to the scale labels using the LabelPostfix and LabelPrefix properties, respectively.

Setting a label postfix

The LabelPostfix property allows you to postfix the values to scale labels.

Custom labels

Linear scale supports custom label format using the CustomLabels property.
You can give labels in an array that you want to place in scale.

Customize the scale labels

The scale labels are customized using the LabelFormat and Culture properties of linear scale.

LabelFormat property is used to change the format of labels.
Culture property is used to set the default format of currency values, numbers, casing conventions, and string comparisons, etc.. to the scale labels.
