protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    if (!IsPostBack)

private void CreateDigitalGauge() {
    // Create a new instance of the ASPxGaugeControl class

    // and add it to the gauge control's Gauges collection.
    DigitalGauge digitalGauge = (DigitalGauge)gaugeControl.AddGauge(GaugeType.Digital);
    // Specify the digital gauge's settings.
    digitalGauge.Text = "Digital Gauge";
    digitalGauge.DigitCount = 13;
    digitalGauge.DisplayMode = DigitalGaugeDisplayMode.FourteenSegment;
    DigitalBackgroundLayerComponent bg = digitalGauge.AddBackgroundLayer();
    bg.ShapeType = DigitalBackgroundShapeSetType.Style2;
    digitalGauge.AppearanceOn.ContentBrush = new SolidBrushObject(Color.Orange);
    gaugeControl.Width = 250;
    gaugeControl.Height = 100;
    // Enable the auto-layout feature.
    gaugeControl.AutoLayout = true;
