Remarks

The values listed by the SymbolLengthType enumerator are used to set the SymbolLength.Type property.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to specify the width and height of digital gauge symbols in fixed and proportional values.

For this, it is necessary to create an instance of the SymbolLength structure with required values and then assign it to the SymbolViewBase.Height and SymbolViewBase.Width properties.

In this example, the symbol length can be set either in fixed or proportional values depending on which of the buttons has been clicked.

View Example

// Specify fixed values for symbol height and width.
SymbolLength newWidth = new SymbolLength(SymbolLengthType.Fixed, 44);
matrixView.Width = newWidth;
SymbolLength newHeight = new SymbolLength(SymbolLengthType.Fixed, 50);
matrixView.Height = newHeight;
// Specify proportional values for symbol height and width.
SymbolLength newWidth = new SymbolLength(SymbolLengthType.Proportional, 2);
matrixView.Width = newWidth;
SymbolLength newHeight = new SymbolLength(SymbolLengthType.Proportional, 5);
matrixView.Height = newHeight;
