27 Oct 2021 / 7 minutes to read

Axis is used to indicate the numeric values in the linear scale. The Linear Gauge component can have any number of axes. The sub-elements of an axis are line, ticks, labels, ranges, and pointers.

Setting the start value and end value of the axis

The start value and end value for the Linear Gauge can be set using the minimum and maximum properties in the axes respectively. By default, the start value of the axis is 0 and the end value of the axis is 100.

Positioning the ticks

The minor and major ticks can be positioned by using offset and position properties. The offset is used to render the ticks with the specified distance from the axis. By default, the offset value is 0. The possible values of the position property are Inside, Outside, Cross, and Auto. By default, the ticks will be placed inside the axis.

Label Format

Axis labels in the Linear Gauge control can be formatted using the format property in the labelStyle. It is used to render the axis labels in a certain format or to add a user-defined unit in the label. It works with the help of placeholder like {value}°C, where value represents the axis value. For example, 20°C.

Displaying numeric format in labels

The numeric formats such as currency, percentage, and so on can be displayed in the labels of the Linear Gauge using the format property in the Linear Gauge component. The following table describes the result of applying some commonly used label formats on numeric values.

Label Value Label Format property value Result Description
1000 n1 1000.0 The number is rounded to 1 decimal place.
1000 n2 1000.00 The number is rounded to 2 decimal place.
1000 n3 1000.000 The Number is rounded to 3 decimal place.
0.01 p1 1.0% The number is converted to percentage with 1 decimal place.
0.01 p2 1.00% The Number is converted to percentage with 2 decimal place.
0.01 p3 1.000% The number is converted to percentage with 3 decimal place.
1000 c1 * ,000.0 The currency symbol is appended to number and number is rounded to 1 decimal place.
1000 c2 * ,000.00 The currency symbol is appended to number and number is rounded to 2 decimal place.
