    Hi,

    I have two major problems - one is partial solved via setting IsLabelRotated to false.
    The other is really a problem and I couldn't find anything in the documentation.

    First of all -- is it possible to rotate all labels "Inside out".
    Your kind of "auto rotation" is quite a bit irritateing :)

    What I get - on a scale 0 - 100 with 10 is.
    0, 10, 20 is "outside in" 30 to 70 is "inside out" and finally 80, 90 and 100 is again (in the oposite direction)
    "outside in".
    What I simply want is all inside out -- like with the radial (first) here http://www.david-black.info/bashboard/default.aspx

    BUT: without rotation it is not exaxtly what I want - but at least "readable" - so not that problem.

    The second thing is much more imporatant.
    I display a value in the range from 0 to 255.
    So it would be nice to have labels at 0, 20, 40, 60,....200, 220, 240, 255
    All I found was "MajorTicks" which give me labels like 21, 43, 64... with 12 as value,
    or 26, 51, 77... and so on if I keep the default of 10.

    I was looking for something like "TickDistance" or "TickFrequency" -- but all I found was "MajorTicks"
    which is an integer divider -- not really usefully for numbers like mine.
    Of course it would work with 260 - and 13 --- but my users would be a bit irritatied if a display for an 8 bit A/D converter
    shows number bigger than 255 :)

    Waiting for you help

    By the way - I just found out, that your other controls have the common "Step Size" (Progress)
    or "TickFrequency" (Slider).

    Only gauge (where useable numbers are most important) has this "brand new" divider.

    Hello Manfred Pohler,

    I've got your points about labels rotation. The Q1.2009 release will contain a couple different ways to arrange labels. I guess it will help.

    The same is about second issue. New property (called MajorTickStep) will be added to the scale object.

    As a quick workaround I would recommend that you set MajorTicks="17". In your case it will look like 0, 15, 30, 45 ..., 210, 225, 240, 255

    Kind regards,

    Hi,

    thanks for the answer!

    The "17 Trick" is not a solution (I don't have the space to keep it readable with that much labels).

    Is there a timeline for the Q1.2009 Release?

    Regards

    Manfred
