LinearGauge HtmlHelper Overview

The LinearGauge HtmlHelper extension is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo LinearGauge widget.

Getting Started

Configuration

Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the Kendo UI LinearGauge.

  1. Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC.

  2. Create a new action method which renders the view.

    Example
        public ActionResult Index()
        {
            return View();
        }
    
  3. Add a LinearGauge.

    Example
    
            <%: Html.Kendo().LinearGauge()
                    .Name("linearGauge") //The name of the LinearGauge is mandatory. It specifies the "id" attribute of the widget.
                    .Scale(scale => scale
                        .Min(0) //Set the min value of the LinearGauge.
                        .Max(200) //Set the min value of the LinearGauge.
                    )
                    .Pointer(pointer => pointer
                        .Value(10) //Set the value of the LinearGauge.
                    )
            %>
    
    
            @(Html.Kendo().LinearGauge()
                  .Name("linearGauge") //The name of the LinearGauge is mandatory. It specifies the "id" attribute of the widget.
                  .Scale(scale => scale
                      .Min(0) //Set the min value of the LinearGauge.
                      .Max(200) //Set the min value of the LinearGauge.
                  )
                  .Pointer(pointer => pointer
                      .Value(10) //Set the value of the LinearGauge.
                  )
            )
    

Reference

Existing Instances

To reference an existing Kendo UI LinearGauge instance, use the jQuery.data() configuration option. Once a reference is established, use the LinearGauge API to control its behavior.

Example
    //Put this after your Kendo UI LinearGauge for ASP.NET MVC declaration.
    <script>
    $(function() {
    //Notice that the Name() of the LinearGauge is used to get its client-side instance.
        var gauge = $("#linearGauge").data("kendoLinearGauge");
    });
    </script>
