Linear gauge is used to identify the quantitative value in analog format. It is rendered as a canvas image. By using the linear gauge control, it is possible to render a thermometer.
Linear gauges can be positioned with either a vertical or horizontal orientation, according to the user’s required scenarios.
The appearance of each element of a linear gauge, such as its state indicators, pointers, scale intervals, pointer positions, label positions, tick positions, and much more, is easily customizable.
The main purpose of the state indicator styles available within the linear gauge is to indicate the current state of the gauge based on its current value. Each state may be indicated with different specific colors.
Linear gauge provides various formatting options for labels to be displayed in any desirable format. For instance, the percent symbol can be appended to the default labels to denote the percent values.
Gauge supports range indicators that can be used to highlight each specific range within a gauge scale with different colors. The users can specify their required start and end values for each range indicator within the gauge. The values can also be located at different positions, such as cross (across the scale), inside (below the scale), and outside (above the scale).
Gauge provides support for exporting a gauge control into various image formats. Linear gauges can be exported into formats such as .jpg, .bmp, or .gif.
