Symbol

A Symbol is a visual element that represents some information on the Digital Gauge control. This information may contain digits, characters or any graphics that can be represented on LED devices.

Any symbol can be divided into one or more parts, depending on its size. These parts can be either segments or matrix dots. To display a symbol on the digital gauge Symbol Panel, use the DigitalGauge.Text property.
