Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Gauges

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Gauges.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public ScaleCustomElementCollection CustomElements { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property CustomElements As ScaleCustomElementCollection

Property Value

Type Description
ScaleCustomElementCollection

A ScaleCustomElementCollection object that contains scale custom elements.

Remarks

Use the CustomElements property to add or remove custom elements to the current scale, as well as to customize different settings of individual custom elements. A single custom element is an instance of the ScaleCustomElement class and can be accessed via the GaugeDependencyObjectCollectionBase<T>.Item property of a ScaleCustomElementCollection object.

Examples

This example illustrates how to add two buttons as custom elements to the linear scale and use them to increase or decrease the current scale value.

For this, create two ScaleCustomElement objects and add a button control to each custom element.

Finally, to provide the capability for end-users to change the scale's value, handle the button1_Click and button2_Click events and write code that will increment and decrement the scale value.
