    In This Topic

    In this step you'll create a simple application using the C1Gauge control. You'll then customize the appearance of your application in Design view without adding any code to your project.

    To begin, complete the following steps:

    1. In Visual Studio, select File | New | Project.
    2. In the New Project dialog box, select a language in the left pane, and in the templates list select Windows Forms Application. Enter a Name for your project and click OK. The project will be created and a form will appear.
    3. Navigate to the Toolbox and double-click the C1Gauge item to add a C1Gauge control to the form. When you double-click the C1Gauge item, the New Gauge Gallery dialog box will open.
    4. On the Radial Gauges tab, select (empty).
    5. Click OK to close the dialog box.

    What You've Accomplished

    In this step you created an application and added a C1Gauge control to the form. The gauge is currently displayed with default settings; in the next step you'll further customize the appearance of the control.
