Adding Elements in front of and behind the Gauge


I'm trying to add a PNG image in front of my Circular Gauge so that the shifting gauge is visible behind the image through empty squares. The way I'm attempting to do this is by adding the PNG in my XML file and then trying to program the CircularGauge in through the Java file to go behind it. I could go into more detail with my code, however, the fact that I have to set the Gauge as my entire view is the bigger issue that I think will prevent any method of mine from working. Is there any workaround? Why has Syncfusion programmed their gauge in this fashion? I think it limits the customizability and power of the gauge. Thank you

Hi Areeb,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

We have analyzed the provided information and we suspect that your requirement is to set the Size of CircularGauge. This can be achieved by the following two ways and its code snippets.

1. Setting the RadiusFactor to CircularScale of CircularGauge.

Code snippet:

circularScale.setRadiusFactor(0.5);  // value ranges from 0.0 to 1.0

2. Setting the size for its parent layout.

Code snippet:

LinearLayout mLinearLayout = new LinearLayout(this);
LinearLayout.LayoutParams mBarParams=
new LinearLayout.LayoutParams(LinearLayout.LayoutParams.MATCH_PARENT, LinearLayout.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT);
30, 30, 30, 30);


We have prepared a simple sample based on this. Please find the sample below.

This is great! I played around with the sample project and got the exact results I need, and this also allows plenty of flexibility. The scaling wasn't an issue, but placing separately configured gauges around the screen with overlying and underlying graphics was the goal and your project gave me the understanding to implement that. Thank you for the service!
