Change Shape of Linear Gauge Control?

Posted 3 years ago by Avatar Berney Villers

Is it possible to change the shape of a WPF linear gauge control such that it looks like the RPM meter in this image:

Hi Berney,

Check out the Circular Gauge Ranges QuickStart.  Then change the Start Extent to 10 and the End Extent to 20.  Then if you adjust the start/end values, you can see how you can make a curved appearance that grows in width similar to the RPM meter.

Thank you. This gets me fairly close. I will also need to alter the linearity. I believe I've seen this in the documentation so I can probably solve it for myself.

Is it possible to have a custom path for this range or will it have to be some portion of a circular shape?

Hi Berney,

I don't believe we have anything in the product built-in for custom paths.  That being said, you can embed any controls you want (such as a Path) via the info in the "Embedding Controls" topic.
