Working with Ticks

RadialGaugeTicks are displayed next to the arc spanning the entire sweep angle.

The following properties allow you to modify the ticks' look:

  • TicksCount: Specifies how many ticks will be displayed. On the following picture the black ticks are 24, but the red ticks are 72.

RadRadialGauge always displays one additional tick to the TicksCount in order to distribute the ticks correctly on the arc.
