    I'm kind of new to C1 objects and trying to update a gauge caption. Below is what I have when I hover my mouse over the caption object in my gauge.


    Can someone clip in some super simple code in C# to update this caption when Form1_load, please

    Thanks a million

    Right so I've managed to create a new caption by utilizing the following code, however I'd still appreciate to know how to make this work for my existing captions/FaceShapes.

    C1GaugeCaption MyCap = new C1GaugeCaption();
    MyCap.CenterPointX = 0.5;
    MyCap.CenterPointY = 0.5;
    MyCap.Text = "My Text";

    Anyone knows how to "update" the value of an exiting caption, without having to re-create one, please let me know. Sincere apologies for the beginner's question btw *_x

    I need to update this: C1GaugeCaption[c1RadiaGauge21.FaceShape(2)]

    Hi Eva,

    Something like this:

    private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    var MyCap = (C1.Win.C1Gauge.C1GaugeCaption)c1RadialGauge21.FaceShapes[2];
    MyCap.Text = "New Caption";

    Hope that helps.
