    Gauges for WinForms provides visual editing to make it easier to create a schedule application. The following sections describe how to use Gauges for WinForms' design-time environment to configure the Gauges for WinForms controls:

    New Gauge Gallery

    When you first add a C1Gauge control to the form in Design view, the New Gauge Gallery dialog box will appear. For more information, see the New Gauge Gallery topic.

    Smart Tags and Tasks Menus

    You can invoke each control's tasks menu by clicking on the smart tag (Smart tag) in the upper-right corner of the control. A smart tag represents a short-cut tasks menu that provides the most commonly used properties in each control. For more information on how to use the tasks menu in Gauges for WinForms, see C1Gauge Tasks Menu.

    Context Menus

    You can invoke each control's context menu by right-clicking the component or control in Design view. The context menu includes common actions when using the control. For more information on how to use the context menu in Gauges for WinForms, see C1Gauge Context Menu or C1LinearGauge and C1RadialGauge Context Menus.
