Gauge controls for WinForms. XtraGauges ships with over 150 built-in presets (including circular, digital, linear and state indicator gauges) and is extremely easy to use. All you need to do is drop a control onto a form, no need to manually create elements, customize their appearance, size and layout. Simply choose the template you like best, bind your control to data and you are ready to go.

What's new in XtraGauges 13.2?

New Scale Types and Visual Styles:

  • Logarithmic Scale for circular and linear gauges
  • New styles - Flat Light and Flat Dark

What's new in XtraGauges 13.1?

  • New Control Designer UI:  Design-time customization dialogs for our WinForms Controls have been re-designed for improved usability and a more consistent user experience.
  • Contextual Smart Tags:  WinForms Navigation Controls (including the Ribbon, Toolbars, NavBar) now display Smart Tags for their individual elements. This allows a customer to customize the control's layout and main settings with a few simple clicks, without using the Property Grid. We've also reviewed and extended our Smart Tags based on the usage experience of the controls.

New WinForms Data Source Wizard
Available via a Smart Tag or the clickable label on any DevExpress data-aware control, this wizard helps you set up your Data Source in three easy steps. In the first step, the Wizard lists all data sources found in the solution, categorized by the data access technologies. If needed, you can select a data access technology and create a new data source. Once the data source has been selected or created, you choose a data binding mode from a list (all list items have short descriptions and links to our online documentation). Finally, the third step allows you to customize Control and Data Source specific settings. After you click Finish, the wizard adds a data source component to the form, binds the control and generates all necessary code.

Visual Studio Template Gallery
Prior to 13.1, DevExpress offered numerous Project/Item Templates that were created over many release cycles. These templates could be found in various locations within Visual Studio. This release includes a fully consolidated DevExpress Template Gallery - the entry point for all Project/Item Templates. The Template Gallery provides a unified way to use DevExpress templates, features powerful filtering and searching mechanisms and contains sample images and descriptions for each template, thus simplifying the way in which selections are made for individual projects. 13.1 also includes improvements to shipping templates and offers additional template options.

FormAssistant component:  This helper component is designed for first time users. When placed on the application form, it allows you to:

  • Convert between various form types (Form, XtraForm, RibbonForm)
  • Select a skin
  • Automatically initialize a skin engine to enable form skinning
  • Add the BonusSkins library to the project's References section
  • Specify basic form settings

Easily Build Dashboards
If your objective is to create a dashboard with multiple gauges, the Xtra Gauges offers you a feature designed to save you and your team hours of work. You can place multiple gauges into one container and enable automatic arrangement. The container will determine the best possible gauge layout for its current size and proportions. If you resize your form, gauges are proportionally resized and their layout is updated so that they use form space most efficiently. Note that gauges can be freely resized while maintaining the highest level of quality, since the Xtra Gauges Suite uses vector graphics for all gauge types.

Hit-testing and Gauge Interactivity
You can make gauges more user-friendly or even allow data input via gauge controls by using the built-in hit-testing engine. When handling mouse events, you can easily determine whether the mouse pointer is over a particular element - say over a circular gauge's needle. Once you obtain this information, you have an endless number of ways in which to enhance data presentation. For instance, you can display tooltips with additional information or you can allow end-users to drag-and-drop elements thus changing the underlying data.

Built-in Style Collection
The Xtra Gauges Suite provides 26 built-in styles that allow you to change how a control looks with just a single mouse click.

Circular Gauges
The Gauge Control provides built-in presets for the following circular gauge types: Full, Three Quarters, Half, Quarter and Wide.

Linear Gauges
The Xtra Gauges Suite provides built-in presets for horizontal and vertical Linear Gauges.

Digital Gauges
The Gauge Control provides four types of digital gauges: seven-segment, fourteen-segment, 5x8 matrix and 8x14 matrix.

State Indicator Gauges
Xtra Gauges provides state indicators of the following types: traffic light, smile, electric light, arrow, flag, currency symbol, and car icon.
