Public Property ImageType As GaugeImageType

Property Value

Type Default Description


A GaugeImageType enumeration value, specifying how a gauge is rendered in a report.


Use the ImageType property to specify whether a gauge should be internally rendered as a metafile or bitmap in a report.

  • If this property is set to GaugeImageType.Metafile (the default value), the quality of the rendered image is always good, but in particular cases some details of the control can be lost.
  • If this property is set to GaugeImageType.Bitmap, the quality of the rendered image is sometimes poor, but it allows a control to be drawn more precisely.

To achieve Microsoft Azure compatibility, set the ImageType property to GaugeImageType.Bitmap or set the AzureCompatibility.Enable property to true.
