Used to display a value in the context of a range, ComponentArt LinearGauge features multiple scales, ranges and pointers, flexible annotations and templateable popups.
Cylinders are used to display a percentage of the target reached in a linear form.
- Half Donuts
Half donuts are used to display a percentage of the target reached in a radial form.
Thermometers are used to display a percentage reached towards a maximum value in a linear form, with optional tickmarks and annotations.
- Numeric Gauges
Numeric gauges display numeric values in a graphically pleasing form, with optional animation effects.
Indicators are used to show the state of a certain measure, based on a set of predefined rules.
- Composite Gauges
Composite gauges are comprised out of several gauge controls in order to graphically show one or more related values.
- Suite-wide Themes & Palettes
Themes are used throughout the suite to define visual characteristics of the user interface, such as chrome shapes of DashboardPanels and Dashboard popups, as well as the matching visual properties of the individual gauge controls. Setting a theme on a DashboardPanel will automatically apply that theme to all controls that it contains. Theme settings can be overridden on each individual control. Color palettes are also commonly shared throughout the suite. Any palette can be applied against any theme. All gauge controls support the same set of palettes and themes – providing a highly consistent look and feel throughout the application. The suite ships with a set of professionally designed themes and palettes, all of which can be further customized to match any branding requirements.
- Comprehensive Visual Studio 2010 Design Time Support
ComponentArt Gauges for .NET offers extensive design-time capabilities within Microsoft's Visual Studio 2010 IDE. All controls include custom design UI panels – enabling quick customization and design-time preview. In addition, ComponentArt is pleased to include single-click license enabling of the application, greatly simplifying the deployment of your solution
