Hi,

I have a linear gauge with two linear scales. One scale has a range list and a bar indicator, and the other one has a marker indicator and two custom tick marks. The problem is that I don't know how to create the custom tick marks. What I need is two simple rectangular tick marks, one red and the other yellow.
To get started, I tried to use an example from another thread, one with °C label, but i keep getting the following error:

System.Windows.Data Error: 25 : ItemTemplate and ItemTemplateSelector are not valid for item.; Type='CustomTickMark'

The code with °C label is posted below.

 <control:RadGauge MaxWidth="100"

What am I doing wrong? Do you have any suggestions for this?

Hi ali,

I am afraid we were not  able to reproduce the problem. I've simplified your XAML a bit, because you didn't provide all styles and I did not get any errors. The only thing I would recommend you is moving of the custom tickmark template to the style definition. Otherwise it will be overridden by default template from the Windows7 theme (you are using it in the RadGauge element). The final XAML I've used to reproduce the problem looks like the following:

<Window x:Class="Telerik.RadGauge.WPF.Q1.MainWindow"
        Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="600">

            </telerik:LinearGauge>
        </telerik:RadGauge>
    </Grid>
</Window>

Could you, please, provide simple solution which we can use to reproduce the error you have?
