Angular Gauges

Display input value on arc

Description

Blocks in the Angular Gauges library show their input values graphically on a scale that lies along an arc of a circle. If the input value is greater than the scale's maximum or less than the scale's minimum, then the block displays the maximum or minimum value, respectively. To learn how to use and customize blocks in this library, see Angular Gauges Library.

    Note:   Blocks in this library can display multiple needles. The Stop Watch and Analog Clock blocks display multiple needles by default. To learn how to control multiple needles simultaneously, see Controlling Multiple Graphical Elements.

Blocks in the Library

The Angular Gauges library contains ActiveX® Control blocks preconfigured with ActiveX controls from Global Majic, as shown.

Dialog Box

The ActiveX Control Properties dialog box governs the appearance and functionality of the control that is embedded in the block. The table below lists the panels of the ActiveX Control Properties dialog box.

PanelPurpose
AnnularsDisplay annular regions along the block's scale
BackgroundConfigure the background and outline of the block
CaptionsDisplay annotations on the block
DigitalDisplay the numerical value corresponding to the needle
FramesDisplay a border on the block
FontsDefine text styles (The Captions, Digital, and Ticks panels use the FontID property to reference the styles defined here.)
HubsEmbellish a needle's axis of rotation
LibraryRefer to property settings as a named collection
NeedlesDisplay one or more needles on the block (The Digital panel uses the NeedleID property to reference the needles defined here.)
ScalesDefine the ranges and locations of values displayed on the block (The Annulars, Hubs, Needles, and Ticks panels use the ScaleID property to reference the ranges defined here.)
TicksDisplay markers and/or numbers at intervals along the scale

The Block Parameters dialog box governs the relationship between the Simulink® block and the control embedded in the block. See Block Parameters for the ActiveX Control Block for details.
