Two kinds of Labels are available for a Linear Scale:

  • Scale Labels that show the current values of a linear scale;
  • Custom Labels that can be placed at any location along a scale.


The scale labels are represented by objects that implement the ILabel interface and present in a LabelCollection returned by the LinearScale.Labels property.

The custom labels are represented by instances of the Label class that present in a LabelComponentCollection object returned by the BaseGaugeWin.Labels property.

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