Visual Elements

Each gauge is a set of elements rather than a monolith object. Elements can be either related to each other (e.g. a needle that relates to a scale) or completely independent. Some of them provide the gauge functionality, others specify its appearance. Each gauge type has its own set of available elements. Follow the links below to learn more.

The following table lists all existing gauge elements and tells you, gauges of which types can possibly use this or that specific element.
