    I was wondering if it is possible to display time in hh:mm format in a Numeric Gauge. I have been tearing apart the Time Monitor example code to try to figure out how you guys put the colon in the Numeric Indicator in the bottom right-hand corner, but I cannot figure out how to do it myself. What am I missing?

    Hi Jacob,

    The appearance of characters in the numeric indicator could be specified with the "TemplatePrefix" property.
    Telerik themes provide the "SevenSegs", "HexagonalSevenSegs" and "FontFamily" templates that could be used as template prefix. The "FontFamily" prefix is used by default.
    Actually this property specifies the start of data template names. The "HexagonalSevenSegs" data templates contain the names like to the following: "HexagonalSevenSegs0", "HexagonalSevenSegs1", "HexagonalSevenSegs2" etc.
    Any character template could be overridden in the resource dictionary. Also you can create own character template set for numeric indicator with names as template prefix plus the character.
    The example I have attached overrides the decimal separator templates ("HexagonalSevenSegs.", "FontFamily.").
    So, it allows displaying a value of double as time that uses "hh:mm" format.

    Kind regards,
