Property Value

Type Default Description

The following example shows how to create a scale value label for a linear gauge. The label will indicate the scale’s current value, formatted in a specific manner.

In the example, the label is added via the LinearScale.Labels collection. The result is shown below:


using DevExpress.XtraGauges.Win.Base;
using DevExpress.XtraGauges.Core.Drawing;
using DevExpress.XtraGauges.Core.Model;

// Create a label.
ScaleLabel label = new ScaleLabel();
label.Name = "MyLabel";
label.Position = new DevExpress.XtraGauges.Core.Base.PointF2D(160, 125);
label.AppearanceText.TextBrush = new SolidBrushObject("Color:Black");
// Enable HTML formattings and format the label's text via the FormatString property.
label.AllowHTMLString = true;
label.Text = "";
label.FormatString = "T=<b>{1:F0}°</b>";
// Add the label to the scale.
