Gauge for WPF

A complete set of circular, linear, and digital gauge controls, along with LED lights and toggle switches

  • Visually render multiple data points in a compact area that is quickly recognized and understood by users
  • All gauge appearances can be customized using an enormous number of pre-built or custom options

Circular and Linear Gauges

Circular and linear gauges can recreate everything from speedometers to thermometers and rolling scales.

Flight simulation gauges
Use gauges to build a flight simulation interface.
Automotive gauges
Use gauges to build an automotive simulation interface.

Scales and Ticks

Scales and Ticks

Multiple scales can be added to each gauge, which determines the overall placement of elements like tick marks and pointers. Labels and major/minor tick marks can be added anywhere along a scale.

Ranges

Ranges

Ranges use color bands to highlight areas of interest in a gauge. The start and end values and thickness can be configured, allowing ranges to get thinner or thicker as they move along a scale.

Pointers

Pointers

Pointers are represented by a needle, mark, bar, or label and smoothly animate to indicate a value. Dampening and refresh rate options help with presentation of quick-changing values.


Everything in a gauge's appearance can be fully-customized and tailored to suit your display needs. Other features include the ability to interactively drag pointers, embed other UI elements anywhere in a gauge, dynamically scale a gauge, and add special value converters for returning the average, minimium, or maximum values supplied thus far.

Digital Gauges

Digital gauges can recreate segmented LED displays, such those found on odometers in modern cars, marquees, and calculators.

Appearance

Digital gauges include several built-in frame rims and backgrounds with customizable colors. Glass effects can be applied for a more realistic look.

Character Display

Several ASCII characters and all numbers can be displayed using the various character types. The size, skew amount, and number of characters can be set.

Refresh Rate

Set a refresh rate to restrict how fast the value is repainted so the end user can read the values before they update, which is useful with quick-changing values.

Scrolling Marquee

Digital gauges can align the displayed text to the left or right. Or they can scroll using a configurable interval, allowing long text to be presented using a marquee effect.

LEDs and Toggle Switches

LEDs present simple state (on, off, blinking) information to the end user, while toggle switches render like a real-life switch.

LEDs

LEDs

The LED control emulates a LED light, which can be turned on and off, or set to blink using a configurable interval.

Toggle Switches

Toggle Switches

The toggle switch control supports three states (on, off, and indeterminate), and has animated state changes.
