Legend in React Circular Gauge component

Legend provides valuable information for interpreting what the circular gauge axis range displays, and they can be represented in various colors, shapes, and other identifiers based on the data. It gives a breakdown of what each symbol represents in the axis range of circular gauge.

You can add the legend for circular gauge ranges by setting the visible property of legendSettings to true.

Legend customization

Customization option is also provided for the legend shape, alignment, and position.

Position and alignment

The position of the legend is used to place legend in various positions. You can use the position property in legendSettings. Based on the position, the legend item will be aligned. The following options are available to customize the legend position:

  • Top
  • Bottom
  • Left
  • Right
  • Custom
  • Auto

The legend alignment is used to align the legend items in specific location. You can use the alignment property in legendSettings to align the legend items. The following options are available to customize the legend alignment:

  • Near
  • Center
  • Far

The legends can also be positioned to absolute position using the location.x and location.y properties available in legendSettings.

Legend size

The legend size can be modified using the height and width properties in legendSettings.

Legend opacity

To specify the transparency for legend shape, set the opacity property in legendSettings.
