When using a DigitalGauge to display real-time data, it is possible that the value displayed by the gauge will change to quickly for the user to read the individual values. The RefreshRate property can be used to limit the number of updates displayed to the user.
The refresh rate is specified as the amount of time to wait between updates. Therefore, if the refresh rate is set to
500 milliseconds, then there will be two updates to the display every second. If several hundreds value changes are made during that second, then only two of the values will actually be displayed.
The ScrollInterval controls the amount of time to wait before shift the characters left or right.
