Qualitative Scale

This article describes the properties exposed by the control for adjusting the qualitative scale.

Setting Manual Range

The scale of the bulletgraph control auto calculates its range by default. To manually set the range of the scale use set the AutoRange property of the bulletgraph control to False and the Minimum and Maximum properties.

To control the interval between the ticks on the scale use the Step property.

Example 1: Setting the scale range manually

<telerik:RadHorizontalBulletGraph AutoRange="False" 
                                  Minimum="0" 
                                  Maximum="120" 
                                  Step="10"  
 
                                  FeaturedMeasure="50"  
                                  ComparativeMeasure="72"  
                                  ProjectedValue="81"/>

Hiding the Scale

To hide the scale's ticks and labels, set the QuantitativeScaleVisibility property.

Example 2: Hiding the scale

<telerik:RadHorizontalBulletGraph FeaturedMeasure="50"  
                                  ComparativeMeasure="72"  
                                  ProjectedValue="81"  
 
                                  QuantitativeScaleVisibility="Hidden"/>

Formating the Labels

To format the tick labels displayed under the scale, use the TextFormatString property. The property allows you to set any of the standart numeric string format strings.

Example 3: Using currency format

<telerik:RadHorizontalBulletGraph FeaturedMeasure="50"  
                                  ComparativeMeasure="72"  
                                  ProjectedValue="81" 
 
                                  TextFormatString="{}{0:C0}" />

Inversing the Scale

To inverse the scale you can set the FlowDirection property of the control.

Example 4: Setting FlowDirection

<telerik:RadHorizontalBulletGraph FeaturedMeasure="40"  
                                ComparativeMeasure="65"                                            
                                ProjectedValue="60" 
 
                                FlowDirection="RightToLeft"> 
    <telerik:RadHorizontalBulletGraph.QualitativeRanges> 
        <telerik:QualitativeRange Brush="#A8A8A8" Value="30" /> 
        <telerik:QualitativeRange Brush="#C6C8C8" Value="70" /> 
        <telerik:QualitativeRange Brush="#E8E8E8" Value="100"/> 
    </telerik:RadHorizontalBulletGraph.QualitativeRanges> 
</telerik:RadHorizontalBulletGraph>
