This topic explains how to get access and customize the preset manager of a gauge control.
The Preset Manager allows you to create gauges from presets.
To create a gauge based on a preset, do the following.
- Run the Preset Manager (see below how to do this).
- Select a gauge category from the list on the left. This displays available gauge types within the right pane.
- Select the gauge type to be loaded and click the Load button (see the image above).
When a gauge is created using the Preset Manager, all existing gauges within the GaugeControl are destroyed.
Open Preset Manager
By default, the Preset Manager is automatically opened when adding a ASPxGaugeControl onto a web form. If Preset Manager automatic running has been disabled, or if you subsequently want to run the Preset Manager, you can open it using one of the following methods.
Select a GaugeControl on the web form and click Run Preset Manager from the command list in the Property Grid.
Select a GaugeControl on the web form, then click the smart tag to open the menu and click Run Preset Manager.
Right-click a Gauge Control's region that is not occupied by any gauge and select Run Preset Manager from the context menu that appears.
