Segments and Matrix Dots

Expanded Segments

A Segment is a visual element into which every symbol can be divided.

The segments number depends on what symbol panel type is used. The following images show the SevenSegments and FourteenSegments view types.

The SevenSegments view type has 7 main segments and 4 additional segments that can be used to display a symbol.

The FourteenSegments view type contains 14 main segments and 4 additional segments.

The main segments are used to display both digits and characters in the symbols panel.

An additional segment displays either a dot, which divides the integral and fractional parts of a decimal number, or another subsidiary symbol.

The table below lists the main properties that affect element behavior and appearance.

Expanded Matrix Dots

A matrix dot is an element of a two-dimensional array that is used to display characters, digits, images, etc.

A DigitalGauge control provides two matrix types - Matrix5x8 and Matrix8x14, which are shown below.

To display one or several symbols on matrix dots, you need to specify the DigitalGauge.Text property value.

The table below lists the main properties that affect element behavior and appearance.
