    how do I remove the excessive white space around the  gauge controls?

    In the attached image all  want is a thin gauge representing a battery but the control is huge,  and cant be sized smaller.

    i have logged this as a bug with telerik. the gauge controls are virtually un-usable if you want any size other than the size that they are designed for, the whitespace around the controls makes them impossible to use with any other controls. look at the attached image, you can see how if you want to create a simple dashboard for a vehicle with speed, battery and revs, its impossible to align the controls tightly because of all the whitespace around them.

    Hello, Jasper,           

    When you drag a RadRadialGauge from the toolbox and drop it onto the form, it comes with a default square size. When you resize the gauge, it is scaled according to this size. However, have in mind that in order to be properly resized and don't have excessive white space, keep the gauge as a square. Thus, it would be positioned at the center of the white container. I would recommend you to have a look at the Demo application >> Gauges examples which offer different scenarios and settings that the gauges offer. In addition, our online documentation explains in details the inner elements: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/gauges/radialgauge/radialgauge

    If you are experiencing any further difficulties, it would be greatly appreciated if you can provide additional information about the exact requirement that you are trying to achieve. Thus, we would be able to think about a suitable solution and assist you further. 

    I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
