# LinearGaugeControl Class

A Linear Gauge control shipped with the DXGauges Suite.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Gauges

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Gauges.v18.2.dll

## Declaration

``````public class LinearGaugeControl :
AnalogGaugeControl``````
``````Public Class LinearGaugeControl
Inherits AnalogGaugeControl``````

## Remarks

The LinearGaugeControl class is a visual gauge control intended for creating thermometer, indicators, etc.

The following images show some examples of a linear gauge.
