Managing Room Temperature with WinRT Gauge Control

Giancarlo Lelli is a software developer who mainly works on client application development for Windows 8, 8.1, and Windows Phone 8. He has been using Syncfusion controls since the launch of Windows 8 for a multitude of products and is consistently seeing a decrease in his development time thanks to the controls and quarterly updates Syncfusion provides. This made Syncfusion a natural choice when he decided to create an application for personal use.

The Challenge

Lelli was looking for third-party controls to help with his development of a private Windows Store application. He was designing a temperature gauge for use in his home that would display the current temperature of a room in a simple and easy to understand fashion. His goal was to create an application that was easy enough for even a child to use.

The Solution

Using Syncfusion’s WinRT controls and the Metro Studio suite of icons, Lelli was able to create the application to display temperature data. “Thanks to the gauge control, I can determine if the temperature is too high or low only by seeing the position of the seed,” said Lelli. He found that the flexibility in customization allowed him to personalize his app, and the online documentation and built-in vector graphics saved him time.

“Syncfusion products are reliable and powerful; they can help in a multitude of scenarios, from web development to mobile development,” said Lelli. “Syncfusion is my first choice in many cases.”
