Telerik Kendo UI DataViz Gauges controls render completely on the client-side, using HTML5 Canvas or the SVG element specification to deliver itself to the user. These standards are widely supported in modern browsers, but the Gauge component has a fallback to VML for older browsers.
The Telerik Kendo UI Gauge control comes with a rich experience within Visual Studio as you can completely customize the component from the design-time interface. This includes options in the SmartTag, as well as an extensive creation wizard.
You can choose from predefined pointer shapes, customize existing shapes or import images to use. Specify the position of the pointer origin in radial and linear gauges. This way, you can decentralize the pointer to the sides or the bottom of the gauge.
You can choose to have the linear gauge either vertical or horizontal. Set the start and sweep angle of the gauge scale as well.
Completely customize the way your gauges render by setting the animation and transition settings for your Kendo UI DataViz Gauge control. Choose from an extensive list of transitions to provide an interesting look to your Gauge component.
By using the radial gauge widget you can show range or progress data. This is useful for illustrating progress towards a goal or a summary of fluctuating metrics.
