    I'm having an issue when setting max values at or above 10,000 for my semi-circle radial gauge. The number 10000 is too long and bleeds throw the bottom of the gauge (see attached screenshot), is there some way I can change the label style so it would suffix "K" and show 10K instead of 10,000, and likewise M for numbers in the millions (1M, 10M, as opposed to 1000K, 10000K or 1000000 etc.)?

    I know that there's a "Multiplier" property, but I feel that in the context of my application, the letter suffix would be more intuitive and easier to understand from the user's standpoint.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Luis Rizo,

    Thank you for the feedback.
    In addition to Multiplier you can use the Format property of the LabelProperties element to show a suffix near the labels. The following sample code shows "K" suffix for the labels:

            <gauge:LabelProperties Format="{}{0:F0}K"/>

    Hi Andrey,
    I'm using a variety of gauges that must be created programmatically and accept values that can vary from 1 upto 10 Billion.
    I'm trying to use both the Multiplier property (to decrease the size of the numbers displayed on the scale) and the Format string to display K, M or B after the numbers on the scale appropriately. I'm finding this very difficult because no documentation seems to exist for either Multiplier of Format.
    Is it possible you could post a simple example of the use of these settings using code-behind?
    Many Thanks,
    Edward Smith.

    Hi Edward,

    The code below demonstrates how to add the gauge from a code using Multiplier and Format properties.
    The sample uses a scale from 0 to 10 millions.
    <UserControl x:Class="GaugeMultiplier.MainPage"
        d:DesignHeight="300" d:DesignWidth="400">
        <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System.Windows;
    using System.Windows.Controls;
    using System.Windows.Data;
    using System.Windows.Threading;
    using Telerik.Windows.Controls;
    using Telerik.Windows.Controls.Gauges;
    namespace GaugeMultiplier
        public partial class MainPage : UserControl
            public MainPage()
                Loaded += new RoutedEventHandler(MainPage_Loaded);
            private void MainPage_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
                RadGauge radGauge = new RadGauge();
                RadialGauge radialGauge = new RadialGauge();
                radGauge.Content = radialGauge;
                RadialScale scale = new RadialScale()
                    Min = 0,
                    Max = 10000000,
                    Multiplier = 1d / 1000000d
                scale.Label.Format = "{0:F0}M";
                Needle needle = new Needle()
                    Name = "needle",
                    IsAnimated = true,
                    Value = 7000000

    Best wishes,

    Thanks Andrey,
    The settings shown in your code work perfectly for me. Many thanks for your prompt and careful assistance.

    When I was looking into something I got my old post. It seems that all the Gauge labels are using "en-US" culture. 

    If a spain user wants to view the component, my component labels are wrong.

    I meant, the value 2500 in en-US culture is 2.5K. But for es-ES culture 2.5K is not 2500. 2,5K is 2500.

    How do I force telerik component to use es-ES culture before drawing the gauge?

    I would like to do it code-behind.  How can I achieve this?

    Hello Edward,

    It appears that you are using the old RadGauge which was obosleted with 2014 Q1. We do not support this control anymore. We now have the gauge controls in the DataVisualization assembly. If you have questions about the new control, you can open a new support ticket.
