How To: Custom Draw a Gauge Control

Show Me

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E3955.

This example shows how to draw a custom appearance for a circular gauge.

To accomplish this task,  the BaseGauge.CustomDrawElement is handled for the ArcScaleComponent, ArcScaleNeedleComponent and ArcScaleBackgroundLayerComponent objects of gauge elements.  

Run this application to compare the custom and default gauge appearances. To do this, enable/disable the "Handle CustomDraw event" option.

Note that the gauge control is constantly animated to show the appearance changes more vividly.
