It doesn't seem like binding to StartValue / EndValue for both Scales and multiple Ranges really works.  I dont see them having any effect.  I have a scenario where the bounds of the gauge need to change dynamically - basically the viewmodel tracks the min and max values seen and I want the extents of the gauge to track these, so that the needle is always in the middle.  If I bind to StartValue / EndValue nothing happens when I change the properties in my viewmodel.

I have other properties bound (StartValue / EndValue on a single range when the scale has fixed start/end seems to work) so it isn't a vm problem.

If I hook my view up to the propertychanged event of my viewmodel directly, I'm able to set startvalue/endvalue on the scale and 2nd range just fine, but this is ugly and not MVVM.  I saw a prior thread from 2013 relating to the winrt controls, so maybe there's something similar going on here.

Here is my creation code
    _radialGauge =
                new SfCircularGauge
                    GaugeType = GaugeType.North
            _scale =
                new Scale
                    StartValue = 0,
                    StartAngle = 200,
                    SweepAngle = 140,
                    EndValue = 20, //DefaultAutoMax, //20,
                    ShowRim = false,
                    MajorTickSettings =
                        new TickSettings
                            Color = Color.FromRgba(128, 128, 128, 128),
                            Length = 200,
                            Offset = 0.08
                    MinorTicksPerInterval = 1,
                    MinorTickSettings =
                        new TickSettings
                            Color = Color.FromRgba(200, 200, 200, 128),
                            Length = 200,
                            Offset = 0.08,
                    Interval = 1.0,
                    //NumberOfDecimalDigits = 3,
                    LabelColor = CurrentTheme.ColorScheme.Gray50,
                    LabelOffset = 0,
                    LabelFontSize = 20,  //known issue - this has no effect until next update
            //_scale.SetBinding(Syncfusion.SfGauge.XForms.Scale.StartValueProperty, "RangeStart");
            //_scale.SetBinding(Syncfusion.SfGauge.XForms.Scale.EndValueProperty, "RangeEnd");
            //_scale.SetBinding(Syncfusion.SfGauge.XForms.Scale.IntervalProperty, "RangeInterval");

            var pointer =
                new NeedlePointer
                    Color = Color.FromRgb(228, 56, 130),
                    KnobColor = this.BackgroundColor,
                    KnobRadius = 400,
                    LengthFactor = 0.98,
                    EnableAnimation = false
            pointer.SetBinding(NeedlePointer.ValueProperty, "Current");
            _backRange =
                new Range
                    Color = Color.FromRgb(239, 227, 211),
                    Thickness = 220,
                    Offset = 0.05,
                    StartValue = 0,// scale.StartValue,
                    EndValue = _scale.EndValue//DefaultAutoMax,// scale.EndValue
            //_backRange.SetBinding(Range.StartValueProperty, "RangeStart");
            //_backRange.SetBinding(Range.EndValueProperty, "RangeEnd");

            var range =
                new Range
                    Color = Color.FromRgb(178, 216, 239),
                    Thickness = 220,
                    Offset = 0.05
            range.SetBinding(Range.StartValueProperty, "Minimum");
            range.SetBinding(Range.EndValueProperty, "Maximum");

LinearRange bindings for StartValue / EndValue in a LinearGauge don't appear to work either.

Even if I manually bind to property changing and try to directly update the values, the displayed range is never changed.
