Usage

Linear Gauge: A linear gauge displays the value along a linear scale, using a linear pointer. The linear scale can be either horizontal or vertical, which can be set using the LinearGaugeDirection property.

A linear gauge is commonly used to denote data as a scale value such as length, temperature, etc.

Radial Gauge: A radial gauge displays the value along a circular scale, using a curved pointer. The scale can be rotated as defined by the StartAngle and SweepAngle properties.

A radial gauge is commonly used to denote data such as volume, velocity, etc.

Bullet Graph: A bullet graph displays a single value on a linear scale, along with a target value and ranges that instantly indicate whether the value is GoodBad or in some other state.

A bullet graph is a variant of a linear gauge, designed specifically for use in dashboards that display a number of single value data, such as yearly sales revenue.
