Name Description Return Value

The value is true.



The value is false.



The value is specified by a global option or a higher-level object.



Set the ShowMajorTickmarks property value to either DefaultBoolean.True or DefaultBoolean.False to control the visibility of major tickmarks on a Circular or Linear scale.

Note that by default, the ShowMajorTickmarks property is set to DefaultBoolean.Default. This means that the visibility of major tickmarks is defined by the current model of a gauge control, set by the CircularGaugeControl.Model or LinearGaugeControl.Model properties.

The table below illustrates the property behavior.

ShowMajorTickmarks = True ShowMajorTickmarks = False
Scale_ShowMajor(Minor) tickmarks-true Scale_ShowMajorTickmarks-false
