Thanks Dimiter. I was able to run the example code in my project. I would like to point out that, unlike the Radial Gauge, there are no MVC LinearGaugeBuilder functions for setting RangeSize or RangeDistance. This is regrettable but not an insurmountable issue.
However, I also found that the scale.rangeSize option is ignored when it is set to a value of zero (both the linear and radial gauges). For my customized linear gauge I was hoping to set a series of range values but hide the range bands from being displayed. The idea is to change the color of the value bar to match the range color when the value falls within a particular range. All the other linear gauge UI elements - line, ticks, labels, etc. can be easily hidden but the range band is always visible when one or more ranges are defined. Is there a style element one can set to hide the range band UI even when ranges are defined?
