ChartDirector 6.2 (.NET Edition)

V-Bar Meter Orientation


      

This example demonstration various orientations for vertical bar meters.

In a vertical bar meter, the scale labels can be positioned on the left or right side of the meter scale. This is controlled by the last argument to LinearMeter.setMeter, which can be Left or Right. The color scale can also be position on the same or opposite side as the scale labels.
