Transparent effects of RadialGauge

The RadialGauge contains specific color for each and every item, by default. So, you have to specify the colors for the items to be customized. For example, Transparent look and feel can be achieved by applying the transparent color from the following properties.

  1. BackgroundGradientEndColor
  2. BackgroundGradientStartColor
  3. GaugeArcColor
  4. InnerFrameGradientEndColor
  5. InnerFrameGradientStartColor
  6. InterLinesColor
  7. MajorTickMarkColor
  8. MinorTickMarkColor
  9. OuterFrameGradientEndColor
  10. OuterFrameGradientStartColor
  11. ScaleLabelColor


//Sets transparent effects to the Radial Gauge.
this.radialGauge1.BackgroundGradientEndColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
this.radialGauge1.BackgroundGradientStartColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
this.radialGauge1.GaugeArcColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
this.radialGauge1.InnerFrameGradientEndColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
this.radialGauge1.InnerFrameGradientStartColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
this.radialGauge1.InterLinesColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
this.radialGauge1.MajorTickMarkColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
this.radialGauge1.MinorTickMarkColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
this.radialGauge1.OuterFrameGradientEndColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
this.radialGauge1.OuterFrameGradientStartColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
this.radialGauge1.ScaleLabelColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
//Shows the needle in the RadialGauge.
this.radialGauge1.ShowNeedle = true;
//Changes the style of the needle.
this.radialGauge1.NeedleStyle = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Gauge.NeedleStyle.Advanced;


'Sets transparent effects to Radial Gauge.
