SymbolSegmentsMapping.SymbolType Property

Gets or sets a symbol type that is used for displaying a custom symbol on a digital gauge control.

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.Gauges
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.Gauges.v17.1.dll

Expanded Syntax

Property value

Type: SymbolType
A SymbolType enumeration value that specifies a symbol type for custom symbol mapping.

Expanded Remarks

Use the SymbolType property to specify a symbol type in custom symbol mapping. For example, depending on the symbol type, two custom symbols can be displayed either on separate segments or a common segment.

Expanded Example

Show Me

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E3523.

This example demonstrates how to display custom characters on a DigitalGaugeControl. This is done via the Custom Symbol Mapping feature that defines which segments should be activated for every custom character.

In this sample we will display "HELLO." using the 7 Segment View type. Note that, by default, these characters can't be displayed in this view (because 7 segments are not enough to provide unique representations for all Latin characters), but some characters can be efficiently displayed via custom symbol mapping.

For this, it is necessary to use the SegmentsStates property to specify appropriate segment states for every desired character. In our case, these will be the following characters: "H", "E", "L", "O", "." Note that for the dot character, we set the SymbolType property value to Additional, so that it will be displayed in the same segment with the previous character.

Then, we specify the text that should be displayed on the segments panel via the DigitalGaugeControl.Text property.
