Themes allow you to specify an individual gauge’s and/or the entire window’s appearance. The following gauges support themes:


Applying a Theme

DevExpress WPF themes only affect on gauge appearance when a gauge uses a themeable model. For this, assign a CircularThemeableModel object to the CircularGaugeControl.Model property to apply the theme to the Circular gauge. To apply themes to the Linear gauge, assign a LinearThemeableModel object to the LinearGaugeControl.Model property. Then, you can use ThemeManager to set a specific theme to all the elements in the application’s window or a separate control. For this, specify the required theme’s name using the ThemeManager.ThemeName option.

The following markup shows how to apply the DXStyle theme to the entire window:

<ThemedWindow ...
    <dxga:CircularGaugeControl Name="circularGauge">

    <dxga:LinearGaugeControl Name="linearGauge">

The following classes and properties allow you to apply themes to gauges:

Class or property Description
CircularGaugeControl.Model Gets or sets a model for the circular gauge control that is used to draw its elements.
LinearGaugeControl.Model Gets or sets a model for the linear gauge control that is used to draw its elements.

LinearThemeableModel The model that allows a linear gauge to use themes.
ThemedWindow A window that supports DevExpress WPF themes and Ribbon / Tab control integration.

ThemeManager.ThemeName Gets or sets the theme’s name. This is a dependency property.
