A Segment is a visual element into which every symbol can be divided.
The SevenSegmentsView type has 7 main segments and 4 additional segments that can be used to display a symbol.
The FourteenSegmentsView type contains 14 main segments and 4 additional segments.
Themain segments are used to display both a digit and character in the symbols panel.
An additional segment displays either a dot, which divides the integral and fractional parts of a decimal number or another subsidiary symbol.
It is possible to display both main and additional segments in one symbol. For this, use the SymbolSegmentsMapping.SymbolType property.
By default, segments display a text that is set by the DigitalGaugeControl.Text property. To show a custom text, every segment should be specified by the SymbolSegmentsMapping.SegmentsStates property (either to 0 - to disable a segment or to 1 to enable a segment).
The table below lists the main properties that affect element behavior and appearance.
